From October 1st, 2021 new route Forlì - Palermo.
Palermo, the chief town of the Sicily region, is a diverse city that offers a rich variety of alternatives.
In 2015, the historic city centre was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site: the Cathedral of Palermo, from the 12th century, hosts royal tombs; moreover, the imposing Teatro Massimo from the neoclassical period is famed for its Opera performances. At the heart of the city there are also the Palazzo dei Normanni - a royal palace dating back to the 9th century and the Palatine Chapel, with Byzantine mosaics. Busy markets include the central street market Ballarò and the market of Vucciria, near the port.
Furthermore, Palermo is the 'street food' capital of Italy. "Crocchè" and "Arancine" are not the only foods you can sample here, but also the "Meusa" (spleen sandwich) the "Sfincione" (flatbread with tomato and caciocavallo cheese), the "Stigghiola"(calf guts) and the fried "Panelle" with chickpea flour. Not to miss would certainly be the bakery which, according to many, is recognized as the best in the word: Cannoli, Cassate, almond pastries and the watermelon pudding are all themselves real pieces of history.
Don’t forget either, that Palermo is above all a coastal city. Among the many beaches reachable from Palermo and its surroundings are: Addaura, Ustica, Mondello, Sferracavallo, Vergine Maria and many others.
