Chaotic, exuberant, busy, dirty, beautiful, decadent, picturesque, set in an incredible position on the edge of the famous Conca d’Oro, in the middle of a suggestive semicircle of mountains and hills, Palermo offers many things to do: from the simple walk in front of the sea on the grass of Foro Italico to a mountain excursion on the ancient path of Monte Pellegrino nature reserve; and more, a day on the beach with a dip in the waters of the wonderful gulf of Mondello, or a tour by bicycle within the Park Favorita, an enormous green area with citrus trees, neoclassic fountains and picnic areas.
After dinner, try a good cocktail in the welcoming pubs all around the city. If you love music, the pubs in the city centre will be the stage of your nights in the Sicilian capital.
Many pubs are reachable by feet from Casa500g:
