Location information for Palermo

Palermo may not be considered a conventional traveller's destination but it does hold a certain charm that makes it an attractive holiday option for tourists looking for something different this time around. This Sicilian capital city is known for its extensive collection of mosaic work and religious exhibits. Getting around the city centre is best done on foot but you will still need a budget car rental to get to neighbouring towns and villages.

Start your tour of Palermo with a visit to the Cathedral. This honey coloured church features Catalan influences. Babarossa's son, Frederick II's remains lie in this site. After that, take your car rental to the centre of the old city where you will find the symbolic crossroads known as the Quattro Canti. Near the area, you will find byzantine mosaic exhibits at the La Martorana Church.

From there, head for the Palazzo dei Normanni. The castle houses mosaic exhibits in its Cappella Palatina as well as in the old Royal Apartments. Piazza Pretoria and the Fontana Pretoria are also common tourist attractions in the city. If you're a fan of opulence and intricate designs, go to the Gesu Church, the most architecturally important and highly decorate church in Palermo. The church is made of polychrome marbles on all floors and walls.

Like any other part of Italy, Sicilians take pride in their own blend of traditional dishes. While you're in Palermo, you simply have to try their local delicacies through restaurants concentrated at the city centre. The street markets near Piazza del Carmine and Vuccina are great destinations for those looking for a dose of retail therapy during their stay.

Arranging for a cheap car hire in Palermo allows you to enjoy other nearby attractions. For instance, after exploring the city, you want to take a day trip to Monreale, a suburb west of Palermo which offers a great view of the city and of the sea.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is HireCars.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by HireCars.co.uk? at this location
