Palermo from the sea

Palermo, Italy

Between the sea and the mountains, Palermo is Sicily's capital and is also known for being the crossroads of civilisations and cultures that have shaped what Sicily is today. Palermo also happened to be Carlo’s birthplace! There, you will encounter beautiful architecture, charming neighbourhoods, majestic buildings, bustling markets, and glorious street food.

Ideally located, Palermo can be the hub of your day trips to nearby sights or a touchdown of a longer trip in Sicily. Either way, we are thrilled to celebrate our marriage with you in a city that means a lot to us!

Getting there ✈︎

Since our wedding venue is in Palermo, your closest airport will be Falcone Borsellino airport (PMO) in Punta Raisi, 35 km west of Palermo. Most European flagship airlines fly to the city's international airport, but low-cost companies usually offer more flights. From the airport, it will take you approximately an hour to reach the city centre by getting on a train or a bus to Palermo Centrale, riding a taxi or renting a car.

Alternatively, you can land in Trapani at Birgi airport (TPS), located 100 km southwest of Palermo and take a bus from there.

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean sea. Unless you plan to travel around, we don't recommend arriving in Catania Fontanarossa (CTA). Catania is definitely worth a visit, but it is over 200 km away!
