Beautiful views and impressive shrine at the summit!

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... read more

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.

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!.

Despite that there is a bus nr 812 to the top ( ticket price from bus 1.80, leaves from Politeama once in an hour, and it is about a 30 minute ride ), I strongly recommend you to walk there. We absolutely loved it ! The views are great, air is fresh, nature is nice and the road is also... More

When my mother was 8 she visited this place, to See St Rosalia, she told the saint to allow her to come to the united states with her father and sister and when she was 14 they went never to return. In 2012 I went to visit it, this brought tears to my eyes that my mother who is gone... More

The road to Monte Pellegrino was bumpy and long but the view was breathtaking. One of the best views I've ever seen in my life. You can see the city of Palermo from one side and the Gulf of Palermo on the other side. The bus ride was pretty scary since we were 3 girls and had a hard time... More

this was a great place for pictures and videos. Watching the sunrise is breathtaking. A must for anyone who wants to see the city from an amazing vantage point. If you're fit you can hike up the mouy.
