Palermo is the historic and vibrant capital of Sicily situated on the northern coast of the island. If you enjoy the presence of beautiful religious buildings, with a bit of ancient history, and a few beaches to provide relaxing contrast, then Palermo may be the place for you. The renowned Palazzo dei Normanni is here along with Palermo Cathedral, and if you take up car hire in Palermo there are some fantastic escapes; Monte Pellegrino is a thrilling drive and Cefalu has some wonderful beaches. Hiring a car in Palermo is available from the town itself, Palermo Airport and nearby Trapani Airport, amongst others.
Most people will head straight for one of the two major attractions in Palermo: Palermo Cathedral or the Palazzo dei Normanni. Other churches such as Martorana or San Giuseppe dei Teatini are wonderfully intricate and worth a look. For a break from the city, head for the Mondello Beach which is a short drive from the city centre. The renowned beaches of Cefalu are an hour away on the A19. If you're hiring a car in Palermo, Monte Pellegrino is a good drive out (14km on the Via Bonanno Pietro) - the views from the top are superb. Rent a car in Palermo and discover vibrant city and unspoilt coast.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
