Palermo is the regional capital of Sicily, which is the largest and most heavily populated island in the Mediterranean.The area has been under numerous dominators over the centuries, including Roman, Carthaginian, Byzantine, Greek, Arab, Norman, Swabian and Spanish. Due to this past the city is still an exotic mixture of many cultures. The old town of Palermo is one of the largest in Europe and contains many masterpieces from different periods, including romanesque, gothic, renaissance and baroque architecture as well as examples of modern art. In this city the weather is very hot in summer and in winter isn't very cold. Palermo also hosts it's rich vegetation of palm trees, prickly pears, bananas, lemon trees and the sea is fantastic.
