One of my favorite places to go and can't wait to go back. The scenery is breath taking but what isn't in Italy.

Mount Pellegrino offers some very nice views of the city of Palermo although many can be obstructed by vegetation. We went up as part of a tour group. I would not pay for a taxi to go up however.

The views from MonteP are truly spectacular especially back toward the city.A stoned friend drove me in his car and I can tell you between him and the winding hairpin turns I was praying to Santa Rosalia many times.It's afun thing to do if you have the time.

We started this walk about 9:00am on a Sunday morning in July. Friends of ours with teenagers joined in, so we ranged in age from 16-60 all with various fitness levels as well. This walk does require a basic level of fitness, but I think that was more to do with the heat / walk combo. Recommend proper shoes, but... More

Good view over Palermo at the top but nice views over the golden vally on the way up,. Not easy to find. Two roads up the mountain. One road from the north was blocked and frinding the other from the south we had to go back towards Palermo. The monestary close to the top is really nothing to see. The... More

It is a lengthy drive to arrive. However, the view is great. The shrine and the story behind it is interesting. Without someone to explain the story, you will miss a lot.

Whether you look at it, from the bottom to be on top of it enjoying the beautiful view, Mount Pellegrino is among the most beautiful scenery of Sicily, the beautiful panoramic view of the city and vice versa, you could even admire the way from the beach of Mondello. A unique show.

If you have the time (and it is a nice sunny, clear day) then I would recommend you catch the bus 812 to the top of Mount Pellegrino. From our experience though the buses don't run regularly to this location and it was recommended to us that we get off the bus at the top, wander over to the St... More

We were taken there by our hosts in a car. It was an intense surprise to see the shrine to Santa Rosalia. You think you are entering a standard baroque church. Once inside the door is an amazing surprise altogether, which plummets you back into the past helter skelter. (Don't want to spoil the plot by explaining more.) We drove... More

Beautiful views of the city of PALERMO!. Make sure you go on a nice sunny day, start early and enjoy the walks. There is nice places to eat hot or cold foods. Ofcourse citadel santa rosolina is an incredible structure built by the mountain, Enjoy!.
