I came here with my cousins, and it is a must to visit and see, the scenery is breathtaking! You can drive up and take some lunch and just sit and enjoy the scenery.

It takes quite some time to get there with public transport. From then on it's a nice and peaceful walk to get to the view point. Getting there by car will make it a lot easier.

A long winding road up the hill rewards you with a stunning view of the city. Its great to get an overview of the area.

You can walk up to the top of Monte Pellegrino ( no relation to San Pellegrino Water) or drive. The path to walk is used for the pilgrimage twice year to pray to the patron saint of Siciliy (Saint Rosalia). We drove it. It's a narrow road with many hairpin turns. The walking path is different from the driving path... More

There is a well marked route from the junction of Via Isaac Rabin and Via Martin Luther King on a paved trail to the Sanitoria di Santa Rosalia. This took us about 1.5 hours and is fairly easy uphill trek with good views over Palermo. At the Sanitoria there are some bars for refreshments etc. It is possible to walk... More

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.
