Sicilian adventure: 7 days on a superyacht from Palermo to Catania

1 of 7 1/7
Palermo harbour


Captain of 54m _Benetti-built Starfire, _Carl Sputh, shares his itinerary for cruises from Palermo to Catania taking in historic sites and beautiful beaches

Day 1 - Palermo

On arrival at the Palermo airport, a host will warmly welcome you to Sicily’s capital city — also the largest city on the island — stupendously located in its own wide bay underneath the limestone bulk of Monte Pellegrino. Within minutes you will arrive on board in the Port of Palermo.

There will be time to relax, explore the surroundings, and meet the crew before heading ashore to explore some of Sicily’s legendary sites. Visit the ornate Piazza Bellini, the cathedral, and the Arab-Norman Palantine Chapel in the Royal Palace. A trip up to Monreale allows for a panoramic view of the Conca d’Oro (the golden shell) — the beautiful valley beyond Palermo with a spectacular landscape.

In the evening, dine on board under the stars and enjoy the view, or head ashore to dine at one of Palermo’s many fine restaurants.
