What to see, do, and visit in Palermo and its environs 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.

 

Palermo Cathedral

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.

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.
