The port in Palermo is far from the shady neighbourhood you might imagine. It is a modern, bustling port that accommodates several thousand travellers daily.
Yes, that’s right: in Palermo the port is right in the city centre. Palermo comes from the Greek “Pan-Ormus”, meaning “All-Port”.
We are very close to the port, and that’s a big advantage: Not only you can travel to Palermo by sea if, for example, you are coming by car, but also you can experience a number of daily trips to all the beautiful little islands around Sicily. Just to tempt you, we've put up a few pictures of these little paradises that are all within easy reach from our apartments!
