Palermo is the first city in Sicily, home to the regional government and, as a “capital“, it boasts a magnificent historical center, rich of art and architecture. Indeed, its strategic geographical position gives her a privileged role among the most important Mediterranean cities.
Visiting Palermo also offers the advantage of discovering unique culinary wealth, typical dishes of historical value, which find their origins in the more remote past. In fact, the city of Palermo offers many gastronomic specialties. From pane ca’ mievusa, fried panelle and crocchè, pasta with sardines, delicious rice puddings, without neglecting the fish that, in the Sicilian tables, you will find fresh and abundant. The sweets, then, are real works of art: the Sicilian cassata, cannoli, the varied pastry that offers choices for every taste, from the fine home-made ice cream, to the classic granite with cream. The Sicilian capital has many of the most appreciated foods around the world thanks to the many people of different cultures that have lived in our land.
Staying in the center of the city has never been as easy as it is now, thanks to the really strategic position of Hotel 38 AIRA, in the historic area of Palermo, in one of the main streets of the city and only 10-minute walk from the central station and the cathedral.
