Palermo gets hot in the summer, so to visit when the temperature is more favourable, you need to head there in late spring or early autumn. Palermo, remember, has a Mediterranean climate, and the Sirocco winds often raise the temperature a few degrees! Stick to spring.
Walking around Palermo is a joy. You'll obviously get to see the sights better, but don't forget the hop-on hop-off bus tour. It's a great way to get around. There is also a local bus service, which connects all parts of the city. Although the further out of town you are, the harder it is to get around. Taxi is another option if public transport is not your thing.
Is Palermo safe? Contrary to the many stereotypes, Palermo is relatively safe with low crime rates. Of course, as with most cities, there are pickpockets, so just make sure your belongings are close by.
Palermo offers a range of top attractions, such as the Palermo Cathedral, the Norman Palace, the Teatro Massimo opera house, the Regional Archaeological Museum, and the Ballarò Market.
Throughout the year, Palermo hosts various cultural events, including the June Festival della Cultura Mediterranea (Mediterranean Culture Festival), and the Festa di Santa Rosalia (Feast of Saint Rosalia) in July, which is one of the most significant festivals in the city.
