Palermo Airport

Airport Car Hire

Palermo Airport, though serving the capital of the island, is the second-busiest airport on Sicily. It is a major gateway for tourist from all over, but particularly Brits. The airport serves as a great gateway to the northwestern part of the island and some of its most scenic attractions. 

Tolls: There are some toll roads on Sicily. An example is the motorway between Palermo and Messina (the A20). Fortunately, it is possible to pay for tolls with cash. No electronic transponder is needed on Sicily.  

Taking a hire car to the mainland: Most hire companies at Palermo Airport allow their cars to be taken between Sicily and mainland Italy. Usually, travellers make this a one-way trip (that is, not returning to Siciliy). There is an additional fee for this, though it is not large percentage-wise if hiring a car for a week or more. You can search for the location where you would like to drop off the car and the extra fee will be included in the total prices. 

One-way rental between Sicily and Sardinia may not be available by the specific hire company you choose. And if they are, the fee is significantly higher than travelling to the mainland. 

So don't wait! Plan your trip to Sicily, hire a car, and enjoy the sunny beaches! And here are some destinations in the northern part of the island to put on your list: 

  • Palermo Cathedral. There are many beautiful and historically important churches in Sicily, but the Metropolitan Cathedral of the Assumption of Virgin Mary might just take the main prize. Proof of the island’s eclectic past, it displays Norman, Arab, Gothic, Neoclassical, and other influences that come together in a truly impressive exterior and interior.
  • Cefalù. Located about an hour’s drive west of Palermo, the coastal town of Cefalù has featured on a number of famous lists of must-visit places. Significantly more relaxed than the regional capital, it is primarily known for its beautiful coastline and distinct architecture but is also home to the beautiful Temple of Diana and the enigmatic Portrait of a Man, a 15th-century painting that has been likened to a male version of Mona Lisa.
  • Trapani. Located near the island’s westernmost point, Trapani is another popular day trip from Palermo. Known for its lively atmosphere, the city is home to the imposing Trapani Basilica, a number of beautiful baroque buildings, nice beaches, and even the Salt Museum. Trapani is also known as a jumping-off point for visiting the Egadi Archipelago and the island of Pantelleria. The drive from Palermo takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes.

If coming to Sicily much like most of Italy the rules on the road may not match your home country but they generally don't drive too fast and the main arterial roads are in good condition and very little traffic on most except around Palermo itself. Take it slow and steady till used to their ways.
