Luxury holidays in Palermo

When to go

Palermo gets uncomfortably hot in high summer, but cools to balmy in spring and autumn – although these are peak months for visitors.

Getting there

  • Planes

    Flights from major cities throughout Europe arrive direct at Falcone Borsellino Airport, about a 40-minute drive away from the city centre.
  • Automobiles

    It’s possible to spend a few days in Palermo getting acquainted with its history, sunbathing on its beaches and eating abundantly, but if you want to explore further afield (and it’s worth looking beyond the city for more picturesque landscapes), a car will be nigh on essential. Hire some wheels at the airport.
