Palermo, Italy

As soon as you land in Palermo, the beautiful heritage of its architecture, history and culture beckons you for an insightful excursion. The port city of Italy is renowned for its old beguiling Norman buildings – churches, palaces, museums, opera houses, squares and the city walls that just charm its visitors in an instant. However, be aware that it’s also a city of chaos and decay that can’t be ignored. Thus, savour it the way it unveils itself to you – immerse in the Arabic influence in the aura, especially in the markets that have narrow streets, marvellous display of food and other stuff, lots of colours and buzz.
