16. Palermo, Sicily

Palermo, Sicily

Raw, unyielding, wild and untamed but entirely magnificent, Palermo in Sicily is truly a festival for the senses.

Because it is not flouted as a must see tourist destination – goodness alone knows why not – Palermo has not been trampled down by bus loads of tourists and therefore the city is somewhat peaceful in comparison to high tourist areas like Rome, while still having magnificent attractions, if you exclude the chaotic traffic that is.

With so much rich history and culture to offer the visitor who is willing to explore, this riveting city will provide endless memories for both mother and daughter.

If you’re staying in Sicily, then there is no question that you are going to want to stay in style, and there is no place more stylish than the Astoria Palace Hotel near Palermo Habour.
