During your stay it is pleasant to take a walk along the Cassaro.
Starting from Porta Nuova you can visit the main monuments of Palermo. The Cathedral with the walk between the domes and the treasure room, the Asmundo Palace, which has been hosting the Puppet Opera since 1893, founded by the puppeteer Vincenzo Argento. Going on, you will come across the Chiesa del SS. Salvatore, a true jewel of Baroque art, Piazza Bologni, with its statue of Charles V, which overlooks Palazzo Alliata di Villafranca, which houses works by Serpotta, the Crucifixion by Antoon Van Dyck and two large ones oils by Matthias Stom. In front of Piazza Bologni, Palazzo Belmonte Riso, from the eighteenth century, home to the museum of contemporary art. This leads to the Quattro Canti or piazza Vigliena. The octagonal square, also called Teatro del Sole, is the connection point between the four ancient quarters of the city: Albergheria, Capo, Kalsa and Vucciria. From here we continue towards Piazza Pretoria with the homonymous palace, the fountain called della Vergogna and, at the back, the sixteenth-century Piazza Bellini with the churches of Santa Caterina d’Alessandria, San Cataldo and Santa Maria dell’Ammiraglio called La Martorana.
The route continues to Piazza Marina, with the Chiaramonte Steri Palace and the nearby Palazzo Abatellis, the museum that houses the Regional Gallery of Sicily, and ends at Porta Felice.
Palermo is not only this: we remember the Teatro Massimo, the Politeama Theater, the shopping streets, the Salinas Archaeological Museum, Monte Pellegrino with the Sanctuary of Santa Rosalia, Mondello, the Catacombs, Monreale, Cefalù …
We are sure we can offer you all the information to visit our city, but remember: one day will not be enough to discover and admire Palermo.
