From lively quarters filled with the shouts of bustling markets and the smells of street food, to the timeless serenity found in multiculti palaces and chapels, Palermo is a treat for the urban adventurer.
On an island set apart from the rest of Italy by its exotic heritage and the distinct Sicilian way of life, Palermo is the capital not just for its size––but also for having some of Sicily’s highlights. The nearly-three-millennia-old city is a historical petri dish for all kinds of civilizations mingling and, remarkably often, overthrowing each other’s regimes. All this foreign rule makes for an interesting city scape, with architectural influences ranging from Greek to German, and from Byzantine to Bourbon. Palermo is also a much-loved destination for its many street stalls offering simple, yet incredibly tasty street food. And where in Europe’s hipster capitals street vendors are avant-garde chef’s side-projects, Palermo’s savoury street snacks date back centuries––offering simple, yet incredibly tasty to-go meals. Don’t forget to bring a bunch of ‘em when you hire a campervan in Palermo. After all, you’ll want to stay well-nourished as you explore as much of Sicily’s long coastlines and quaint towns as your road trip allows!
Parking: Most of Palermo’s city centre is designated ZTL (restricted vehicle access). In order to drive and park your campervan in these areas, buy a €5 ticket at local tobacco shops or newsstands. To park your van in the ZTL zone, look for street parking with blue lines. Alternatively, park your campervan in the downtown Politeama area, which lies outside of the restricted area and where parking is free. The neighborhood is safe and at walking distance from Old Town!
Campsites: Palermo has a few camping grounds, the most nearby being Idea Vacanze, which is right in the northern outskirts of the city. Alternatively, there’s a few camping grounds right next to Mondello, where you’ll have easy access to the beach by campervan and are still close to Palermo!
