There is a lot of stuff to do in Palermo. It's a city that is home to everything from Punic remains to Art Nouveau houses, the perfect blend of history and modernity to enjoy. Simply put, there is a lot of stuff to do as you enjoy the top Palermo attractions. 

The city's variety of architectural and artistic heritage is quite large and you can find Moorish-style buildings, Baroque churches, and neoclassical theaters which host many Palermo activities. In each of the places to visit in Palermo you'll notice the cultural testimony of all conquerors who have travelled through it, each leaving their mark on the city over many centuries. 

Some of the main things to do in Palermo are visiting the Catacombs of the Capuchins, a ceremonial site located under a monastery of the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin, originally a cemetery in the sixteenth century. Today they have become a tourist attraction for its macabre content. The Cathedral, the Palace of the Normans, and the Martorana churches are also places to visit in Palermo. 

One of the more interesting attractions in Palermo is an octagonal plaza at the intersection of Via Maqueda and il Cassaro. Here you can enjoy a coffee or stroll while chatting with locals.
