Cruises from Palermo
The capital of Sicily, Palermo is an historic city in southern Italy and is situated on the NW of the island right by the Gulf of Palermo in the Tyrrhenian Sea. The 2700 year-old city is noted for its rich history, culture and architecture. With Sicily's greatest concentration of sights, and the second biggest historic centre in Italy, Palermo is a complex, multilayered city that can be overwhelming if you try to see too much. However, not to be missed is a ride to the summit of Monte Pellegrino, which offers spectacular views of the capital itself, as well as surrounding mountains and the ocean.
