We can’t believe any city in Italy has changed more than Palermo over the past 20 years, so if you’re still picturing the old cliches of crime and chaos, you’ve got to come and see for yourself what everyone’s talking about.
Palermo is the perfect base for a winter holiday in Sicily. The summer tourists thin out noticeably by mid-October, but the weather is still glorious right up to Christmas.
