The Italian city most full of life

Palermo: a city once feared for its Mafia activity, now revitalised as one of the most popular tourist destinations in Italy. There are few cities even in a country as rich as ours which can boast such a colourful old town, such greenery and so much sun – even in winter. At Palermo Blu our team loves nothing more than helping you discover all these wonders during your holiday here:

Palermo in Winter

Palermo in Winter

The composer Richard Wagner spent the winter of 1881/82 here in Palermo and wrote: “We are here to have no winter: here there is only summer and spring”. Why not follow his illustrious example and escape winter in beautiful Palermo?

The Essence of Sicily

Palermo, and Sicily at large, are so much more than the clichés of Mafia, fashion and devotion to the Madonna. This beautiful video introduces the long history of the sun-bathed island we love and call home. We at Palermo Blu thank the team of film-makers for this outstanding work and congratulate them on their success:

Staying Safe

Palermo’s battle against the Mafia began in earnest over 50 years ago. It was hard and led many tragic casualties, but they did not make their sacrifices in vain. Today Palermo is the Italian city with the lowest crime rate. Special thanks for the photo shoot to our good friends on the Filly Biz team.
