Good time here, people are soooo nice and warm. The city center is always full of people and the sun is a constant present. Best gelato ever had, one of the best pizza in my life and street food as it were. For low budget trips and super high quality experiences. Super suggested!

Many combine their visits to Palermo and Cefalu because they offer such different things but are really not far from one another. Palermo is a fascinating city that's worth visiting, even if just for the day. Lots to see and eat!

Busy and dirty. We did not get a good vibe or maybe Palermo was just not a city for us. We went to close by cities like Mondello and Cefalu which we loved.

I've been to many places in Italy. If I had to compare Palermo to any other, I'd say it feels like a more industrialized and spread-out Naples: The smog on some streets are bad, so much so that they sting my eyes
