Review of Camille Plourde about our office at Palermo Airport - Sicily Powered by Google™
I was terrified about driving in Sicily but this is by FAR the best car rental experience I have ever had. When you arrive climb one floor up and cross the street in front of the terminal (main entrance which is in front of the police office). Then there is no signs for the shuttle so we thought we got fooled but no, less than 10 minutes later the bus showed up (it's VERY yellow and written Centauro in huge letters so you really can't miss it). It's about a 10 min drive to the Centauro office where we got our car in about 5 min. I highly recommend taking the premium offer which gives you full insurance and an extra driver (driving in Sicily can be very interesting so we felt much better having the full coverage). Also if you book directly on their website the premium package is cheaper, so it's worth it! Don't be surprised they charge you for the gas when you get the car but you get the money back if you bring back the car full. Highly recommended!

Best place to rent car in Palermo or even whole Italy. While doing some research before renting a car in Palermo, i came across with this company (I have used it as well while renting in Rome FCO airport) and ir is very professional. You arrive to their office by shuttle bus from an airport (10min drive) and there are practically no queques while on the peak hours, people wait hours at airport renting spots. Check in and out went smoothly and was quick. Car was in a good condition, only 18k km mileage and ran smooth. Despite that driving in Sicily requires a lot of patience, this company is a good way to reduce stress and enjoy the vacation! 100% recommend.

Great experience with these guys! No issues at pick-up but there is a short ride with a shuttle and if you're not prepared for it, it's a bit odd but great service. No issues what so ever if you get the full insurance, which feels much safer to be driving with anyway. I dropped the car off a day early due to our flight being too early in the morning but there are good connections from the airport so tha wasn't an issue either. I can honestly say that this is the best experience I've had with ANY car-rental service anywhere!

What to see, do, and visit in Palermo and its surroundings with your rental car.
Palermo Airport - Punta Raisi
It is the Palermo-Punta Raisi Airport, although it can also be called Falcone-Borsellino Airport or Punta Raisi Airport. It takes its name from the place where it is located: Punta Raisi, about 35 kilometers west of Palermo. Get to the city by road easily, via the A29 and E90. It has connections with other important Italian cities such as Rome and Milan, where you may have to stop, although there are direct flights from Madrid.
Car rental in Palermo
Palermo is the capital of Sicily and its largest city, so driving is a good option if you do not want to miss anything. Palermo is a city full of history and charming places: the Palermo Cathedral, the Palace of the Normans or the Catacombs of the Capuchins are just some of the places that will leave you breathless.
What to see in Palermo
Palermo is a city with a lot to offer, it already has that air that makes it one of the most interesting and rich cities in the Mediterranean. Enjoy the drive by submerging in the atmosphere of a road traveler, determined to cover every nook and cranny of the island’s capital. Here are our recommendations:
Historic Palermo and Temples of the city
The Palermo Cathedral, from the 12th century, is one of the must-sees in the city for any traveler, other temples that you cannot miss are the Church of San Cataldo or the Church of the Martorana, where you can see some spectacular Byzantine mosaics.
Drive around the historic streets of Palermo and see its open-air monuments, visit the Vucciria neighborhood and stroll through its market, drop by the Piazza Marina, which once was Palermo’s meeting point; the Piazza Vigliena or Quattro Canti, surrounded by four baroque palaces. Fontana Pletoria also awaits you in its homonymous plaza; there you can see countless statues of naked mythological beings.
The Palace of the Normans, built in the 9th century by the Arabs, is also one of the places you can not miss, and today it is the seat of the Sicilian Regional Parliament. However, if you want to see a quaint place, although somewhat grotesque, go visit the Catacombs of the Capuchins, a 15-minutes drive just outside the city.
Driving route through Palermo and its environs
If you rent a car, you can visit any place of interest without having to rely on public transport, something to take into account considering that Palermo has several attractive places in its surroundings. We offer you some driving routes.
One of the tours par excellence in the vicinity of the Sicilian capital is Monreale, located just 30m with your rental car, where you can walk through its streets and see the cathedral built by the Norman King Wilhelm II to compete with the Palermo Cathedral. From there, you can go to Mondello to relax on the beach. Back to Palermo, the Monte Pellegrino Nature Reserve is a must-see, this is a haven of peace where you can walk through nature and forget about the world. It is possible to take a closer look at this natural reserve, since it is only 13 kilometers from Palermo.
If you have more days, you can take your trip to Sicily and visit Taormina, located three hours away, or Catania, just two and a half hours away on the road.
Weather in Palermo
The climate of Palermo is Mediterranean so, in general, you will find it temperate. However, if you travel in summer, you will probably find it warm, it is better to wear cool and breathable clothing.
Gastronomy: What to eat in Palermo
Finally, we are going to talk about gastronomy, since it is known that Italian food is one of the most acclaimed in the world. There are some gastronomic spots you can’t miss in this Italian capital. Palermo food is reminiscent of the cuisine of other Italian regions, pasta and pizza play are prominent. However, the Sicilian capital gives it a distinctive touch, which results in unmistakable dishes. Here are our recommendations:
- Taste the arancini, some saffron-covered croquettes stuffed with rice and another ingredient to choose.
- Try the pasta con le sarde with sardines, fennel, raisins, anchovies, onions and pine nuts.
- The sfincione is a thick pizza that can be stuffed and covered with cheese, tomato, anchovies, onions and aromatic herbs.
Driving routes are endless, just as what this destination has to offer. What are you waiting to start your road trip?
Thinking about going on a different road trip this fall? The charm of Palermo, Catania and the Valley of the Temples are waiting for you on your driving route through one of the most beautiful islands of Italy.
