Overview Of The Port Of Palermo

About Palermo
Palermo is the capital city of both the autonomous region of Sicily and the Province of Palermo. Sicily is located in the central Mediterranean.

The old part of the city is a jumbled warren of streets so take care. Shops, cafes and museums are all easy to find in this walkable city. Ceramics, embroidery and coral jewellery are all popular gifts.

Places of interest include the Cattedrale della Santa Vergine Maria Assunta/Cattedrale di Palermo, the main Cathedral of Palermo, dating back to the 12th century, Fontana Pretoria, a 16th Century fountain, the Archaeological museum and the Orto Botanico di Palermo, a botanical garden with 12,000 different plant species.

Other options away from Palermo itself include the small town of Monreale with it's 12th century Cathedral and great view over the bay, Selinunte, which is around 100km from Palermo, Agrigento where you can visit the Valley of Temples, and Céfalu, the Norman fishing village.

Beaches can be found at Mondello, Aspra, Cefalu, San Vito Lo Capo, Isola delle Femmine and Arenella. All of these beaches are located either directly in the city of Palermo or within an hour’s drive from the city itself.

Local dishes to sample include 'risotto con gamberi e zucchini' (risotto with shrimp and courgette), 'penne con salsiccia' (spicy sausage pasta), 'funghi e piselli' (mushroom and peas) and stuffed calamari Sicilian style.
Cruise Terminal
Cruise ships dock at the "Stazione Marittima" on the Via Del Mare, not far from the city centre and can easily be reached on foot. Inside the cruise terminal there are telephones, a bar/cafe, toilets, bank, and tourist information.

There are taxis, shuttle buses and horse and carts available at the port. Note: traffic is loud and chaotic in Sicily.
