Car rental in Palermo?
Located between the Tyrrhenian Gulf and the mountains of the Conca D’Oro, Palermo is a fascinating, bright and sunny metropolis, a crossroads of different cultures that has played a central role in the history of the Mediterranean. Now the capital of the region Sicily, Palermo has been in the past under the control of the Phoenicians, the Romans, the Byzantines and the Arabs, and its thousand-year history is manifested through the stratification of its buildings, the remains of the ancient Punic walls, Art Nouveau villas, baroque basilicas, neoclassical theatres and places of worship in the Arab-Norman style.

Once you arrive in the Sicilian capital, both by ferry and by air, renting a car in Palermo is the best way to move in comfort and discover without disturbance the wonders that the land of Sicily has to offer.

Most of the city’s attractions are concentrated in the old town. Unmissable in Palermo are the Martorana Church, with its disarming beauty and its beautiful mosaics, the Church of San Giovanni degli Eremiti, near the Norman Palace, with its distinctive red domes, and the magnificent complex of the Cathedral, which overlooks the Cassaro and rises where once there was a mosque. Not to be missed are also the church of San Giovanni dei Lebbrosi, with its Arab-Norman style, the basilica of the Holy Trinity of the Chancellor and the Teatro Massimo, one of the most representative jewels of Palermo. A visit to the city’s historic markets, such as Vucciria, Capo and Ballarò, is an essential experience to fully immerse yourself in the authentic essence of Palermo.
