Palermo is known for its beautiful Mediterranean climate, making it the perfect place to set up a temporary home office. Imagine waking up to the sound of the waves and starting your day with a cappuccino on a sunny terrace. With the rise of remote work, it's easier than ever to do your job from anywhere in the world.
Home swapping is a great way to fully immerse yourself in the local culture and get a taste of everyday life in Palermo. You'll have the opportunity to stay in a real Italian home, cook traditional meals in a local kitchen, and meet friendly locals who can recommend their favorite spots in the city. Plus, home swapping allows you to live like a local and avoid the crowded tourist areas.
Palermo is a city with a rich history and vibrant culture. From the historic Norman Palace to the vibrant street art in the Ballarò market, there is no shortage of things to see and do. Don't miss the impressive Cathedral of Palermo, a masterpiece of Norman-Arab-Byzantine architecture, or the Orto Botanico (Botanical Garden), a peaceful oasis in the heart of the city.
Palermo is known for its delicious food, so be sure to indulge in some of the local specialties such as arancini (fried rice balls), panelle (chickpea fritters), and the famous street food, the "pani ca meusa," a sandwich filled with boiled and fried calf's lung. Don't forget to try a granita, a refreshing Italian slushie, or a gelato, the perfect treat on a hot summer day.
Palermo is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area. The beautiful beaches of Mondello and Cefalù are just a short drive away, and the ancient city of Segesta, with its well-preserved Greek temple and theater, is a must-see. Or, visit the charming town of Erice, perched on a hilltop with breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.
