Must See Sights in Palermo
Palermo has never featured in a “top ten places to visit in Europe” list, and in fact, might even struggle to make a “top ten places in Italy” to visit list. There are, of course, some must see sights in Palermo, and many of these are situated within the historic section of the city. Most, of these are within easy walking distance of the Quattro Conti, meaning that it is quite possible to visit all the main must see sights in Palermo within two days, or one incredibly full one.
I do, however, have quite a few days to spend here until my flight home, and so I need to spread out the must see sigts in Palermo over a number of days. Some of the must see sights include the Quattro Conti itself, the Palazzo Real and the Norman cathedral. Most of the rest of my time spent here is going to be chilling out. I haven't really taken a break since returning from my cycling trip from Alaska to Argentina nearly 18 months ago, and it feels nice to unwind with a book over a bottle of wine at night. (No, this is not a sign of age before anyone comes out with some sarcastic comment!!).
