Cheaper than the cupola in the cathedral at 2 euros 50. You get an amzing view down via V Emanuele towards the sea at one end and the cathedral at the other. Much less busy too when we were there.

Attracted by a sign advertising a view from the top we didn't go inside but headed for the side entrance and paid a few euros at the desk. Climbing about 145 steps- which we counted on the way down, was a small price to pay...More

Like many of the 300 or so churches Palermo, it is not often open. So if it is open go in and you will be treated to a different kind of church. Not the typical church. This also costs to go in. access the top...More
