In recent years, due to its nature as a “welcoming city”, it has become a multicultural center and, at the same time, one of the most important tourist cities in Italy.
The UNESCO recognition of the Norman Arab path, which took place in 2015, represented the most important challenge for the Municipal Administration and for its citizens who were able to seize this opportunity for economic and cultural rebirth.
The tourist enhancement of the territory, the partnership between public and private, the network between institutions, progress and technological innovation, attention to diversity, soft mobility and sustainable development have contributed enormously in promoting the welcoming climate towards tourists, as well as improving the livability of the citizens of Palermo.
Due to its perception in the world as a safe city, Palermo has established itself above all in international tourism, increasing in an extraordinary way in the years 2018 (as the Italian Capital of Culture) and in 2019 the presence of foreign tourists and tripling the number of accommodation facilities.
Its temperate climate, the sea, the natural beauties, the wealth of the monuments left by the various dominations that have followed one another over the centuries, its multi-ethnic food and the street food famous all over the world make it a privileged destination for attentive visitors in search of beauty, culture, history and human warmth.
