Christmas in Palermo, a feast for every sense staying at elegant Villa Igiea. Take time to visit the 'living nativity' in the medieval village of Custanoci for true Sicilian festive spirit. Wander through historic open markets filled with Chritsmas delicacies, their heritage dating back to the Arab souks of old. Close to the hotel and located in the Piazza Unita d’Italia, you can find intricate antiques and local art, browse the Exhibition of Sicilian Crafts in the lavish Politeama Theatre, and dive into the ‘Fiera di Natale’ – open from mid-November and providing some of the most unique decorations and crafts. Bask in the acoustics of a Christmas show in the Massimo Theatre, the largest in Europe.
