Fenomenal in the summer, welcoming in winter, yes, because in fact, in the seaside town of Mondello, during the summer and winter seasons there is a transformation: in winter it is possible to stroll through the wonders of Mondello beach, grasping all its sublime beauty. In summer, the beach is embellished by the many umbrellas and wooden huts, ready to welcome tourists and the people of Palermo who want to spend a day relaxing at sea. Going toward the village main square you can stop for a dinner or a fish-based lunch in one of the thousands restaurants or taste the boiled octopus from Calogero, now a symbol of Mondello. Do not forget to try the spaghetti with sea urchins, a specialty that can only be had in Palermo.
Just after Mondello, heading towards the Faro, you can reach Capo Gallo, the natural reserve of Palermo, where the crystal clear water, with its bright hues, awaits you for a swim.
