Things to do

From fascinating historic sites to stunning natural landscapes, Palermo offers an exhilarating range of family-friendly activities and attractions to explore during your visit.

Begin your adventure by marvelling at Palermo's rich history with visits to various Norman buildings and UNESCO World Heritage Sites, such as the Palazzo Reale, Chiesa di San Giovanni degli Eremiti, and the Cattedrale di Palermo. These architectural masterpieces offer a unique insight into the city's past and are sure to captivate the whole family.

Next, head to the Palermo Botanical Garden, the largest in Italy, for an enjoyable day out surrounded by beautiful flora. Children will love exploring the lush green space, while the adults can appreciate the tranquillity and natural beauty of the garden.

Don't miss the opportunity to immerse your family in Sicilian culture by interacting with the friendly locals and learning about the unique Palermitano dialect of the Sicilian language. This cultural exchange will not only foster understanding but will also create lasting memories for your family.

Finally, indulge in mouth-watering Sicilian cuisine, allowing your family to discover and enjoy the authentic flavours of Southern Italy. From delicious seafood dishes to sweet treats, there's something to please everyone's palate.

When to visit

The best time for families to visit Palermo is during the shoulder seasons of May-June and September-October when the city offers pleasant weather and fewer crowds. July and August experience the warmest climate for swimming; however, it is also the peak tourism season with higher prices.

From November to February, it's best to bring warm clothing as temperatures cool down. In contrast, light clothing will suffice from May to September. It's important to plan your holiday in accordance with school terms, ensuring your children aren't missing out on any essential academic time during your visit to Palermo.
