We took the bus from Palermo, which was cheap but chaotic and overcrowded! Once up the mount though, the view is stunning and the church of Santa Rosaria built into the mountainside is incredibly beautiful.

Not only on the way to visit the Sanctuary, but Montepellegrino has beautiful views anywhere you turn on the road, trees of different category and loads of cactus with fruits on it.

You can't go wrong once you've decided that you're not going to just sit on the beach all day and swim...you must visit some ancient sites and learn about the history of this great island. Take the time to drive the windy road up to...More

Loved this walk, quite challenging but worth it just for the view. The chapel of St. Rosalia was interesting (it is in a cave)... Overall it was great if you like a bit of hiking :)

Awesome view from the Mountain all over Palermo. You can take a nice walk from Santuario to the viewing point and enjoy the landscape. Minus point for all the spray paints and trash.

It's pretty far, there is a bus driving to the church on top which is a scenic view, too. Use the website Rom2Rio dot c o m to get bus times and stops.
Is there a tour to Monte Peligrino from Palermo City?? Don't want to take the city bus! I heard that IMAT HAS A TOUR?
