Palermo Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

The largest city of Sicily, Palermo is also one of Italy’s most special destinations. Very few other cities in Europe can match its historical and architectural riches, some of which have been in their place for millennia. These are three of the most notable attractions in and around Palermo:

  • Palazzo dei Normanni. Of the widely diverse civilizations and cultures that have ruled Palermo at some point in history, it was the Normans who left one of the most notable marks on the city. Their heritage is best exemplified by the 900-year-old Norman Palace. The impressive building is often called the oldest royal castle in Europe. One of the highlights of the palace complex is the beautiful Palatine Chapel.
  • San Giovanni degli Eremiti. Of the many churches in Palermo and Sicily, St. John the Hermit’s is probably the most notable one. First built in the 6th century and rebuilt several times during the following centuries, it shows the clear influence of the island’s former Arab rulers and is also distinguished by its red spires.
  • Cefalù. One of the most visited villages in Italy, Cefalù is a popular day trip for a reason. About an hour’s drive east of Palermo (with most of the road taking you right along the coast), it is famous for its very impressive cathedral; the large, climbable cliff (known simply as the Rock) right behind it; and the ancient Temple of Diana. The trip from Palermo takes one hour.

- Driving in Palermo city requires driving experience, don't recommend it to new drivers - Driving around anywhere else in Sicily it relaxed - Parking must be paid most of the times, also at beaches but alternative parking can be found - Be aware of keeping anything inside the car that is visible from the outside

The airport is one of my favourites and the Goldcar desk is easy to find, the cars are right outside the airport and so very easy to drop off. Give yourself plenty of time for the pickup though and make sure you take a ticket for your turn or you will be by passed.
