Palermo in detail

Palermo, Sicily's largest and most cosmopolitan city, has an eventful history which has bequeathed it a fascinating blend of Orient and Occident.

Today's city is vibrant, colourful, noisy and busy in stereotypical Italian style with graceful palazzi and ruined houses placed cheek by jowl. The city's modern history is linked with the Mafia (Cosa Nostra) though the only indication of this to tourists is the Teatro Massimo, proud of the fact that it was used as a movie location in Godfather III.

Street crime and pick pocketing are not uncommon so take the usual precautions, particularly in the city's crowded markets.
