Via Maqueda along with Via Vittorio Emanuele are probably the 2 main tourist pedestrianized areas in central Palermo. They cross at Quatro Canti and are packed with eating places and toursit shops. Always very busy with outdoor seating taking up the pavements, lots of noise, smells, buskers and people watchers. But look out for the scooters, mopeds, motorbikes, cars and horse and carriages that also use this pedestrianized street as a quick way through town - do as the locals do and ignore them and they seem to whizz through the crowd without causing any problems - an experience !!!!

From the Quarto Canti to the piazza ruggero settimo, this is a wonderful street. It’s a pedestrian street, but watch out for scooters, bikes, and the occasional car! 😂 Endless places to eat and shop along the way. Stop and have a coffee or a drink and enjoy all the people passing by.

We had our apartment here and surprisingly it's an interesting street, shop owner set up tables and chairs on the street so people can dine/drink outside. Local vendors will pull up with their cart and sell stuff (hats, sun glasses, earrings, bags, toys and etc) the whole night.

This street is like connection to everywhere, walk south to the Quinto Canto and Quattro Canti, Fontana Pretonia (Fountain of Shame), walk North to the Teathor Massimo. From Quinto Canto walk straight up to visit Cattedrale di Palermo.

Shopping and lots of good restaurant along side or just by walking distance.

This is a good route to use to get through the old city. It is mostly pedestrian, not noisy although quite busy. Shops and fast food eateries rule the street but overall entertaining.

A must to see in Palermo! This street is centrally located it is difficult to miss. Usually closed to cars, just official cars are allowed. At night is crowded with people strolling around, there are several bars and restaurants e police is everywhere!

I guess most interest is centered on the intersection at the Quattro Canti and the nearby Piazza Pretoria and historic churches, while further along you will arrive at Teatro Massimo. There are many other historic buildings along the route plus the shops and restaurants. The section between the Teatro and the Quattro Canti is pedestrian only during the day.

Very commercial, with slightly less tourist emphasis than Via Vittorio Emanuele. Cheaper eateries, shops catering to locals as well as tourists, walk it on your way to the theatre
