The Hidden Treasures of Palermo

Welcome to Palermo, the pearl of the Mediterranean, where history, culture, and art blend into an explosive mix of beauty and authenticity. Salt Sicily guides you in discovering the hidden treasures of this incredible city, through a unique itinerary and unforgettable experiences. Let’s explore the secret Palermo and local experiences together!

Let’s start our itinerary in the Kalsa district, the ancient heart of the city. Here, among narrow alleys and hidden squares, you will discover the true soul of Palermo. Don’t miss a visit to the Church of Santa Maria dello Spasimo, a gem of Renaissance architecture that, after being transformed into a hospital and then a theater, today stands as a cultural space open to the city.

Continuing our journey, we immerse ourselves in the colors and scents of the Mercato del Capo, one of Palermo’s historic markets. Here you can savor the delights of the local cuisine, from panelle to cannoli, and discover the authenticity of Sicilian flavors.

Just steps away from the market, Via Calderai awaits you with its ancient artisan workshops. A place where time seems to have stood still, and where you can admire the craftsmen at work, guardians of ancient traditions.

Just a short walk from Via Calderai, a true treasure chest of beauty and history, is Palazzo Mirto. This historic palace, open to the public, offers a unique glimpse into the splendor of Palermo’s past nobility, with its richly furnished rooms and secret gardens.

Leaving behind the chaos of the city center, we head towards the Garden of the Zisa, an oasis of peace and tranquility. Here you can relax in the shade of ancient trees and admire the splendid architecture of the Zisa Castle, a unique example of Arab-Norman art.

Our itinerary continues in the Albergheria district, where history and tradition blend in perfect harmony. Don’t miss the visit to the historic palaces of the district, such as Palazzo Conte Federico, one of the best-preserved medieval palaces in the city.

Before concluding our journey, a mandatory stop is the Palatine Chapel, located inside the Norman Palace. Its extraordinary Byzantine mosaics will take your breath away and transport you into a world of beauty and spirituality.

To end our day discovering the secret Palermo in style, there’s nothing better than a walk in the Vucciria, the most lively and vibrant district of the city. Here you can immerse yourself in Palermo’s nightlife, among typical venues, music, and fun.
