Ballarò Market

Ballarò is the oldest and widest market in Palermo where you can enjoy some exciting flavours and buy fresh produces. Resembling a colourful and buzzing souk, walking down the lanes of this busy street market will immediately show you how Sicily markets developed during the Arab occupation. Part of the experience are the jingles sung by the vendors to attract customers while offering samples to the passers-by.

Orto Botanico

Founded in 1781, the Botanical Gardens in Palermo are considered to be a prestigious open-air botanical museum that has enabled in-depth studies on fascinating plants for about 200 years. Walk down the shaded pathways lined with subtropical plants, fig-trees, Mediterranean herb gardens and local cacti and hibiscus but don't forget to also check out the beautiful historical buildings where this restful paradise is set in.

Palazzo dei Normanni

The former royal palace of King Roger II in the 1100’s, Palazzo dei Normanni is one of the most famous sights in Palermo. Dating back to the 9th century, the palace owes its current appearance to the embellishments realized by the Normans: covered in dazzling Byzantine mosaics, the Arab-Norman architecture is a symbol of the political and cultural union operated by the Normans.Check out the stunning Palatine Chapel

San Giovanni degli Eremiti

One of the finest examples of Medieval architecture in Palermo, the church San Giovanni degli Eremiti is famous for its red domes and architectural design that was greatly influenced by the Arabs during the 12th Century. This was originally a mosque that was later converted into a Christian church dedicated to Sicily's hermit monks. Walk along the pretty garden of regional plants and the ruins of the cloister.
