The combination of the bleached marble columns, the bright blue sea and the colorful wildflowers is breathtaking. The only downside is that the temples that you see are reconstructions as the whole city was completely ...

    10 reviews

    I never saw an opera here but I did see the Godfather Part III in the movie theater when I was 11. In the film Michael Corleone's daughter is gunned down on the steps of the theater after his son's debut opera performance. Many tourists go to see the theater just for that reason.

    Palermo Cathedral

    4
    9 reviews

    The Cathedral is a chimera of architectural styles. From the outside it looks something like a fortress with battlements fringing the upper areas. There's also a grand dome and maybe the only clock I've ever seen on the side of a church. The courtyard is studded with statues of popes. The interior is less interesting with classic baroque frescoes of ...
