Flamboyant and full of contrasts, the main city of Sicily, inspiring Palermo is as if woven from diverse cultures and tempers. In fact, Palermo is a controversial mixture of Arabic mosques and Baroque churches, vibrant markets and calm streets, which is so untypical for Italy yet alluring by its extravagance. Speaking of the best spots to start your Palermo exploration, discover the exceptional beauty of the Palermo Cathedral, proceeding to the former residence of the Sicilian kings, the 9th-century Norman Palace, and the historic Duomo di Monreale. Plus make sure to add on one of the largest opera theaters in Europe, Massimo Theater, a couple of Palermo museums, and the most ancient city market, La Vucciria, to get the real essence of the passionate sun-kissed Italian south. And, to top it all, don't forget to treat yourself with an exceptional gastronomic experience, trying mouth-watering local specialties like cannoli and caponata.
