Palermo Travel guide
Palermo : Michelin's recommendations
Palermo was once a favourite haunt of writers, poets and artists who were drawn here by the city’s exotic atmosphere and eclectic beauty. Much of the city’s charm comes from the different civilisations which have influenced its development over the centuries. Despite its war damage, modern construction and crime, Palermo “the Flower” is currently experiencing something of a revival with festivals being held in the lively historic centre and many of the city’s monuments undergoing restoration.
