Some Good Reasons to Visit Palermo [infographic]

In this article, old Don Tano Bongiorno (your semi-official guide to Palermo), is going to explain to you just why you should visit Palermo. I’ll make it easy. We’ll go by the numbers.

By the way, “Don” is a title of respect. They call me Don Tano mostly because I’m old and smile a lot.

Well, back to my infographic that explains why everyone should visit Palermo.

I know, some people never think or coming to Sicily to visit Palermo. They travel all over Europe. They visit the Roman ruins and the Greek and Egyptian monuments and all the other attractions to be found throughout Europe and the Middle East, inluding Italy, but while Sicily is just a short ride from Italian soil, they don’t seem to think about Palermo.

I hope I can change that because Palermo is one of the most interesting cities in all of Europe. I could give you an endless list of reasons, but that would take up too much of my time and of your time as well.

But look: From the beaches through to restaurants and Palermo’s vast cultural heritage it would probably take at least a week to show you everything you should include in your next visit to Palermo.

Over in America, the wise Benjamin Franklin taught that time is money. I think he was right. In any case, I’ve collected a great deal of data about Palermo and turned them into an infographic that allows you to quickly learn what’s best in Palermo.

Data come from the most reliable researches conducted by both Italian and international companies, so it’s pretty dependable. I hope you’ll get some inspiration here for your next trip to Europe.

Here is the infographic about the many reasons to visit Palermo.

About Don Tano

I’m full-blooded Sicilian born from the noise of the Vucciria market and the gentle sound of the waves of Mondello. I grew up eating “pane e panelle” and “pasta con le sarde”. But most of all, I grew up with an awareness: Palermo is a beautiful city to live intensely and to love without question!
