As with the rest of Italy, Palermo’s main tourist season is April to mid-October, which is when the weather is at its warmest and driest. July and August are the hottest months, with temperatures between 23 and 29 degrees Celsius. As this time is popular with tourists, hotel rates and flight prices usually increase. You should also think about booking accommodation is advance, to avoid disappointment, especially during festive periods, such as the Festino di Santa Rosalia.

This is celebrated through shows, concerts, exhibitions, a food festival, religious procession and fireworks. The summer season is also a good time to book a flight to Palermo if you want to spend your holiday enjoying the great outdoors and relaxing on some of the most beautiful beaches.

It is worth taking note that the city is also busy at Easter, Christmas, New Year and during school holiday periods and this can in turn see prices rise.

Autumn to early spring is considered the low season, due to the cooler temperatures and increase in rain, although temperatures are still on average above 10 degrees.

Flight was delayed 2 hours due to technical issues they were having at Zurich airport according to the swiss agent when I called. This caused my connection flight to be unviable. The swiss agent was helpful in finding me a partner airline to fulfill my need to get to final destination in eastern Europe. However, the only flight the agent was originally able to find me was a connecting flight through Frankfurt with a 7 hour layover and not only that but they didnt have space on the flight without upgrading me to a higher cabin class at my expense of 384 euro. I asked if this could be waived since the technical issues were not my fault from the beginning and the agent stated they arent. I ended up paying the extra 384 euro for the agent to call me back an hour later stating he found another flight through Munich with only an hour and a half layover which was great, but when I asked for the 384 euros to be refunded he stated that was included in the price difference for this flight and there was nothing he could do about that. I feel like I got scammed out of that 384 euros as that was a cabin upgrade for a flight I never ended up taking that was supposed to be my replacement for an error they were having on their end. I am grateful for the agent finding me replacement flights that worked in my favor time wise but not in being swindled out of extra charges. I also paid 85 USD to "pick my seats" (which honestly feels like a cash grab on behalf of airlines these days anyways) on my original swiss flight that I did not receive back either since I could not pick my seats on the replacement flights as well. Way to use flight delays for swindling your customers Swiss. Kayak was great as usual but I did not have any communications with Kayak directly for this ordeal it was all through Swiss airlines.

Destination overview

Southern Italy is very different to the North: this is the place where life is lived to the full.

Most visitors to Palermo fall in love with the city. It has a stunning location on the west of Sicily, with access to some of the most beautiful beaches in the country, and enjoys warm weather almost year-round.

As with most of Italy, the city has a host of museums and galleries and spectacular churches, with architecture that dates back many centuries and has influences from Roman, Arab and Greek civilisations. And many tourists book flights to Palermo for the cuisine. The food here is exquisite: all local produce that grows on the island’s hills or is caught in the sea.

The Capuchin Catacombs contain the mummified remains of approximately 8,000 ancient inhabitants of Palermo. Capuchin friars started mummifying and embalming the bodies of the city’s nobles in the late 1500s, and the tradition continued for centuries – the last body was embalmed in 1920. After being embalmed, the corpses were hung along the walls of the catacombs, dressed in their finest clothes, which they still model today. It is a spectacle that is equal parts fascinating and spooky.

One of the most fascinating attractions in Palermo is the Museo delle Marionette, a museum dedicated to the art of puppetry. The collections here – the world’s foremost puppet collection – highlight this age-old entertainment. Free puppet shows are staged in the summer, but the museum collection itself is entertainment enough. The antique puppets represent traditional characters of Norman Sicily, such as Saracen pirates, knights, ladies and troubadours. The collection includes English “Punch and Judy” dolls and puppets from the Far East.

In the suburb of Monreale, high on the mountain slope overlooking “Conca d’Oro,” as the valley beyond Palermo is referred to, sits the Monreale Cathedral. The 12th-century cathedral is a mix of medieval Christian and Muslim architecture, and boasts a wonderful mixture of Arab, Byzantine and Norman art. The magnificent mosaics that cover 6,340 square metres of the dome and interior walls are unsurpassed. The adjacent Benedictine abbey features a cloister with 228 carved stone columns, many inlaid with mosaics, depicting scenes from Sicily’s Norman history.

Some of Europe’s greatest archaeological treasures are tucked away in this former church that dates from the 16th century. In addition to showcasing the famous Stone of Palermo, this museum houses iconic Greek and Roman statues. Highlights include two Phoenician sarcophagi dating from 5 BC, and the Pietra di Palermo, a black slab discovered in Egypt containing hieroglyphics that is known as the ‘Rosetta Stone’ of Sicily. One room is devoted to the marvellous finds unearthed at the temples of Selinunte. There is also an interesting section devoted to underwater archaeology.

The remains of the ancient Sicilian city of Solunto lie 10 miles (16 km) east of Palermo, near Santa Flavia on the slopes of Mount Catalfamo. It was first a Phoenician village, then a Greek town before it was sacked by the Romans in 254 BC, who rebuilt much of the original town. As a result, the ruins here are of the Roman style. Sadly, no complete structures remain and the ruins consist mainly of floors and the lower portions of walls and columns. Portions of mosaics and paintings are still visible however, and an impressive view of the Gulf of Palermo can be had from the hilltop above Solunto. There is a small archaeological museum at the site, although most of the artifacts from Solunto are in the Palermo’s Regional Archaeological Museum.

Getting around Palermo

The best way to see Palermo’s medieval centre is on foot. All the sights are close enough that you won’t need more than your own two feet. The rest of the city is another story, and you’ll need to travel via bus or taxi. Buy bus tickets at tobacco shops before you board, and the bus will take you anywhere you need to go, including as far out as Monreale or Mondello. Trips made within a set time period cost a flat fare, or you can buy an all-day pass. For major sights and attractions, you may want to take the Giro Citta tourist bus. The bus travels in a loop, so you’ll get on and get off at Teatro Politeama. Buy your tickets on board. Buses are very convenient, but they can be slow. For a faster trip, call for a taxi or pick one up at a stand. You can also rent a taxi for an entire day.

Airports

The main airport which services Palermo is Palermo Airport (PMO) (website: www.gesap.it), which is also known as Falcone-Borsellino Airport and Punta Raisi Airport. It is situated in Punta Raisi, which is 22 miles (35 km) northwest of Palermo.

What is good to know if travelling to Palermo?

  • The Teatro Massimo is one of Europe’s largest theatres. Dating from the 19th century, it was restored recently and stages opera and ballet.
  • Quattro Canti, the square, is the centre of the old city, between Via Vittorio Emanuele and Via Maqueda. There are four 17th-century palaces on the square with facades illustrating different themes such as Spanish kings and the four seasons. 
  • Kalsa is Palermo’s Arabic quarter. The Porta dei Greci is also known as Porta d’Africa. It is possible to spot the sea from the gateway.
  • The Palermo Cathedral, Saint Mary of the Assumption, is built on the site of a pagan temple and, later, mosque, and was worked upon until relatively recently so it has a mix of architectural styles. The chapel is known for its royal tombs and the Cathedral Treasury houses the 12th-century Crown of Constance, which has Byzantine, Arabic and Western elements.
  • Visit Monreale about 5 miles (7 km) south of Palermo’s centre. Monreale overlooks the “Conca d’Oro,” the beautiful valley beyond Palermo. The mosaics in Monreale Cathedral are said to be one of the world’s largest displays of this art.

What does PMO mean?

This is defined as Palermo Punta Raisi Airport (PMO). Codes like PMO are often used to just call airports uniquely.

What airport do you fly into for flights to Palermo?
