An Amazing holiday break to the most spectacular Sicilian capital Palermo ,visiting also Erice, , Le Saline di Trapani, Cefalu, Cerda, Monte San Pellegrino, , Catania etc…
“The Kingdom of the sun” (the name given to the Sicilian Capital) has been a cultural melting pot since Phoenicians and Greeks fought over it in the 5th and 6th centuries B.C. It has a relatively recent “made in Italy” identity. In 2018 it basked under the banner of Italian Capital of Culture, hosting the prestigious Manifesta contemporary art biennale and helping regenerate its waterfront.
