New drivers can access the rental upon payment of a daily supplement which does apply from the age of twenty-three. Read our policy about this.

Within the offices of the same city, the one-way rental with Sicily by Car is free from any supplement!

Palermo, the city that the Greeks called Pan Hormos (all port), due to the wonderful bay it overlooks, is the capital of the Sicilian region. The origins of the city are lost in time, but we know that already in Phoenician times the city, at the centre of the traffic of the Mediterranean Sea, was compared for its beauty to a flower, Ziz, as it was called by that people. Since then the city has welcomed people and cultures from all over, stratifying an artistic, cultural and architectural heritage of rare beauty.

To visit Palermo, there is nothing better than renting a car to discover the countless riches of the city and, to do so without worrying about limited traffic areas, you can rent a 100% electric car.

The historical centre

The historic centre, recently awarded as Unesco heritage for its Arab-Norman itinerary, offers unique examples of almost intact architecture of the time: Palazzo Chiaramonte Steri, the seat of the Rectorate, Palazzo dei Normanni with its famous Palatine Chapel, the former mosque of San Giovanni degli Eremiti, the Cathedral and the church of Santa Maria dell'Ammiraglio. You cannot leave out examples of Baroque art of absolute importance, always within the historical part of the city: Churches such as Casa Professa or Santa Caterina will really leave you breathless for the enchanting polychrome marbles inside. In the land of the Gattopardi you cannot miss a visit to some of the most elegant noble palaces such as Palazzo Mirto, Palazzo Alliata, Palazzo Conte Federico. There is no shortage of historical museums of great interest: Palazzo Abatellis, Palazzo Sant'Elia, the Rice Museum of modern art or the Salinas archaeological museum and many others.

If you want to do some artisanal shopping, we recommend Corso Vittorio Emanuele, better known as "il Cassaro", where you can also admire the famous 4 Canti di Palermo and Piazza Pretoria and continue along via Maqueda to Piazza Verdi, home to the magnificent Teatro Massimo, a temple of opera.

The surroundings and street food

By renting a car in Palermo you can reach Mondello, the beautiful seaside resort of the city known all over the world, go up to Castello Utveggio, an iconic building of the city located on Monte Pellegrino, or visit the characteristic Monreale, its Cathedral and the secular cloister, and push yourself to Cefalù, an internationally renowned village full of alleys and typical streets and enriched by the immense Cathedral known for the Christ Pantocrator inside.

Palermo is also the city of street food and historical markets, Vucciria, Capo, and Ballarò. In the alleys of the latter you will encounter the House of Cagliostro, the famous alchemist of the 18th century ... let yourself be fascinated by the mystery, Palermo still has many hidden secrets to reveal to you!
