Palermo, Sicily, Italy

Sunny Palermo is Sicily’s capital city and historic center. Sightseeing tours visit 12th-century churches like the Palatine Chapel, with its blend of European, Sicilian, Byzantine and Arabic influences, as well as the Capuchin Catacombs, medieval town squares and an array of palaces. Street vendors peddle Sicilian puppets and open-air markets display fresh fish, fruits and vegetables along with street eats like chickpea fritters and potato croquettes. Other excursions venture to the picturesque town of Monreale, known for its fine mosaics and Norman cathedral; Zingaro, Sicily’s first nature reserve; and the seaside resort village of Cefalu.
