Why Palermo? Palermo is the capital of the Italian island of Sicily and sits at the bottom of Italy in close proximity to Tunisia and Malta, a city at the edge of Europe but at the centre of the ancient world. Palermo delivers a heavily spiced mix of Byzantine mosaics, Arabesque domes and frescoed cupolasa, it is a place where souk-like markets are found beside baroque churches and where date palms frame Gothic palaces. It is a thriving city that has seen huge development since the 80’s and its economy mainly centres around tourism and services. As a tourist destination, Palermo offers a huge range of historical attractions, ancient buildings, and dramatic coastlines to explore.
