    Make the Most of Your Time in Palermo

    Explore the Palazzo Dei Normanni, built in the 9th century; and just behind the palace, you will find Villa Bonanno, a famous garden that resembles a tropical African oasis rather than typical gardens you would find in Italy and is a great place to soak up the fresh air and perhaps even stop for a picnic. Stroll along Via Vittorio Emanuele, one of the main streets in the city, and explore churches and buildings built in Arab, Norman and Byzantine styles. Don't miss the fountains and statues called Quattro Canti and the macabre Catacombs of the Cappuccini. For a spectacular view of the area, drive to the town of Cefalum, a massive rocky outcrop; the walk to the top may take a little while but the panoramic views from the top are well worth it. Drive along the stunning coastline and explore the area until you find a beach to your liking.

    Whilst on your Italian road trip drive two hours east from Palermo until you reach Messina, a city of beautiful architecture, cathedrals and historical buildings. Climb to the top of the Torre Faro, and observe the Messina Strait from the 200-metre tall platform. Catania is another city with profound architecture and is a two-hour drive south of Palermo. The famous Elephant fountain is the symbol of the city, situated in the Piazza del Duomo, an elegant shopping district. You can enjoy a meal made with local fresh tomatoes accompanied with seafood straight from the sea, or if you have a sweet tooth try a cannoli or granita. On the headland of the next bay west, San Vito is an attractive, relaxing location, perfect for those wanting to unwind on their travels. It has golden sandy beaches, picturesque flora and fauna and many religious, cultural and historical sites.

    Parking and Tolls

    Similar to any major city, parking in Palermo during peak hour times can sometimes be difficult in the city centre. On-street parking operates on a pay and display ticket basis. Parking tickets can be purchased from tobacconists' and bars and usually range in price from €0.75 to €1.50 per hour. A secure car parking option is the Piazzale Ungheria just off the main street. The starting price of a ticket to be purchased at Bar Mazzara is around €1.50 an hour. This car park provides both long and short-term parking spaces and is open 24 hours a day.
