Sunny Day at Mount Pellegrino

We went up to Mount Pellegrino last 30 December 2015 and was a great time, including the drive way upend down and the beautiful sceneries from the top.

I visited here to see the sanctuary of saint Rosalia - the patron of Palermo. It was interesting due to its cave setting.

We are reasonably experienced walkers, but not expert hikers - we undertook this walk in trainers and with a few bottles of water. It was perfectly manageable, not especially steep, not at all treacherous, and very green and pretty. There are lots of places to pause and it was not a hectic route. We walked from the centre of town... More

Road is narrow but definitely drivable. Check out the Sanctuary of St Rosalia, worth a visit. The view is amazing and if I didn't have my 80 year old parents with me I would have hiked to the top. Food is available as well as souvenirs and public transportation for those who prefer not to drive.

It is not that easy to go to the top of Monte Pellegrino but when you get up there you indeed enjoy the view over the Mondello beach. The church in the cave is another thing to look at and you may see some pilgrims who climb the mount once a week!

A beautiful trek with breathtaking scenery. Take a packed lunch and water and expect an uphill walk for a couple of hours!! Embrace the fresh air and enjoy the peace !

Due to bad weather conditions we were not able to go up the top, but still we could enjoy the fantastic panorama and the dimension of this place. If you are in Palermo or in Mondello, it is easily accessible, and very close to the town. An excellent short excursion from Palermo, really worth the time.

My friend and I went to Monte Pellegrino by bus, it was very easy. We visited 'La Santuzza' and prayed. On the way back, we didn't want to wait for the bus (make sure you check the times before) so we decided to walk down. On the way, we saw a few people hiking up, even the way down was... More

A summit that shows you Palermo for what it is - a Golden Valley. Do take a taxi to the top, may be quite abandoned and thus unsafe after the dusk.

We cycled up from Palermo and down to Mondello for a swim - delightful trip. Road down was closed for construction but it was possible to cycle down - so extra benefit was no traffic to worry about
