Trip Planner Europe  /  Italy  /  Sicily  /  Province of Palermo  /  Palermo


The capital of Sicily, Palermo was founded by the Phoenicians under the name of Ziz. During the Arab domination, which lasted from the ninth to the 11th centuries, Palermo became Europe's "city of delights," with numerous mosques and palaces. This is the beating heart of Sicily's tourism industry. Renowned for its fine restaurants, vibrant nightlife, and numerous examples of Romanesque, Gothic, and Baroque architecture, Palermo often tops Europe's list of tourist destinations, offering countless things to do and see. Visitors will find that Palermo is a convenient starting point for their itinerary as they explore the entire island. When in town, enjoy the long stretch of the coastline for relaxing seaside, sailing, or engaging in a variety of water sports.
