Sicily - Palermo (PDF Chapter)

Flamboyant, guarded, feisty yet staunchly aristocratic, Palermo is a seething mass of contradictions. Enter a church full of Byzantine mosaics, wander along a street of stately baroque palaces or eavesdrop on banter between market stall owners and bargain-hunting housewives here.

- bask in Palermo’s heady multi­cultural past amid Byzantine mosaics and Arabic marble-work at Cappella Palatina

- demand an encore at Teatro Massimo, one of Europe’s opera house belles

- dive into a gut-rumbling torrent of buxom produce at Mercato di Ballarò, and take in the heady aromas and hollering market vendors

Coverage includes: Palermo, Historic Palermo, Albergheria & Capo, Vucciria & La Kalsa, New City, Baroque Cathedrals, Palermo Region, Mondello, Monreale, Corleone and Ustica.

You can pick and choose from complete guides and individual chapters, and download them to any device you like.
