  • The Hippodrome of Palermo is strategically located in the city and can be part of a day wandering through the forests of Palermo. Its architecture is beautiful and classic and has many alternatives to do, from eating to playing with the machines, but the essential is to go when there is racing. The turf is an important part of the nature and the tango. Also with little money you can play long time and spend a wonderful day in a beautiful city place

  • A walk even to those who don't like the bets. In addition to the horses, it's worth checking out the huge casino equipped with modern machines. Between the cafes and restaurants, a nice pub with big screens and live games.

  • Ample space for events, as well as being the point of horse racing. I met him at a Parrilla Festival in a weekend. Very nice.

  • For me, a racetrack should be like Palermo -- a good track needs to have some kind of tradition behind it .. in the buildings, in the trees and grass, in the amenities for guests, If it is just a big cash register with old hags and bums lining the fence hoping their 50 cent bet will pay off a thousand bucks, it's a bummer. Only good track is a pretty track. I have spoken! :) Cheers.
