Mondello is a popular seaside resort renowned throughout Sicily; it is considered the official beach of Palermo, so during the summertime it hosts lots of tourists and visitors from each part of Italy. This charming village has fascinating and astonishing villas that are considered the best expression of the Art Nouveau style in the country. Near the village, Mount Pellegrino holds a nature reserve that covers an area of over 1,000 hectares, offering a rich stretch of Mediterranean vegetation. This reserve also includes Parco della Favorita and the Sanctuary of Santa Rosalia, the patron saint of Palermo, a very expressive place of worship.

If you prefer a more relaxed holiday, the beach of this town has a white sandy bay and a wonderful sea with crystal clear water. Every year the beach provides the World Festival on the Beach, an event that promotes water sports such as windsurfing, sailing, beach volley and musical performances.
