Sicily is a southern island of Italy in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea. The city of Palermo, Sicily is an Italian gem with traces of ancient Arab civilization treasures.Varied landscape upon landing in Palermo: sea x mountain x volcano=splendid background

Palermo is a captivating northern city and the capital of the Island of Sicily. Palermo is to me, culturally rich and dazzles in diversity. The gorgeous island of Sicily, known to be the pearl of the Italian south, is a cultural treasure where ancient Arab and Byzantine culture have left their mark in an Italian way of life. Praised by those who have visited Sicily, Palermo is seductively beautiful and feisty. The fascinating sea front mixed with a Gothic palace like Cathedral resembling Arab castles, souk like alleyways and markets, Baroque churches with Byzantine Mosaics (could not photograph in church), and golden arabesques domes (top of Politeama theater that I could not photograph because I was not high enough) is what makes Palermo a travelers gem. It is the mix of heritage that creates the Sicilian metropolis of today.
Until next time,
