Palermo Holidays

Palermo holidays

Today, the ancient and the modern, the gracious and the ugly stand side by side. The traveller often has to seek out what is to be seen and is richly rewarded upon finding it. Palermo is one of those intriguing cities of extremes. Graceful palazzos and villas from an era long since past contrast dramatically with modern flats and apartments.

The Palace of the Normans, the imposing 12th century cathedral, the gardens of the Villa Giulia and the superb archaeological museum should not be missed.

The Cathedral of Monreale, built in 1174 by King William II, is the greatest of all the monuments of the Norman kings in northern Sicily. While the outside of the cathedral is predominantly plain, the inside walls are adorned with stunning mosaics - reputedly one of the world’s largest displays of this art.

Segesta, Sicily

Holidays In Palermo

Cefalu, on Sicily’s scenic north coast, is a charming seaside resort and fishing village. The name, Cefalu, comes from the Greek for head (Cephalus), given to the craggy rock resembling a head that towers over the town. The Norman cathedral, built in the reign of Roger II in 1131, took 100 years to build and contains some fine examples of Byzantine mosaics. Perfect for a charming holiday in the 'real Sicily'.
