SURROUNDING AREAS OF PALERMO
There are plenty of sights and natural wonders to see in the vicinity of the city as well as the abundance of treasures found in Palermo. Not far lies the city of Agrigento, famous for its ancient Greek temples dating back to B.C.
UNESCO HERITAGE SITE
These marvellous monuments are a UNESCO Heritage Site which brilliantly demonstrate ancient Greek architecture, actual mostly intact temples with great surging columns, a most impressive site to see. The friendly staff at our 4 star hotel in Palermo can help you with any information and inquiries you might have and supply you with information on getting you around to these fantastic sites, don’t be afraid to ask!
For those Sunny days
During the warmer months is the time to take advantage of the fantastic beaches around the city. Mondello is a local favourite only 10 kilometres outside the centre. These sprawling white sand beaches and sparkling crystal clear blue-green water are the perfect way to relax and take in the splendour of the island’s natural jewels. Cafes and restaurants abound in the small town and leave a good opportunity to sample some of the cuisine of the area, especially the extremely fresh seafood and famous gelato, while you admire the beautiful views under the warmth of the Sicilian sun.
A little further out is Cefalu, another favourite and equally beautiful beach, great for escaping the heat of the summer sun and enjoying the serene crystal waters of the Mediterranean. Don’t hesitate to ask the staff for additional information.
