No, would be too much for a single day. With just 1 day stay in Palermo, add a visit to Monreale duomo if you have time.

No - I agree with biondo!

What day of the week??

See Palermo, and perhaps consider a visit to Monreale's Duomo.

And what does the remainder of your itinerary look like?

Will you arrive and depart from Palermo?

And where else will you visit in Sicily?

Will you hire a car?

Then if you arrive and depart from Palermo and you have 3-4 days in Palermo, yes, see another destination....

Perhaps take the Cuffaro bus service to Agrigento and see the Valley of the Temples, or take Tarantola and visit Segesta, or take Salemi and visit the Greek ruins in Selinunte....

You could do all your days in Palermo, but consider at least a visit to the Duomo in Monreale.

Prego DanLR1976,

And you may postpone your decision until after your arrival in Palermo - See Palermo's attractions, check on weather conditions, and then decide if you'd like to venture further afar!

Buon viaggio!
