Palermo

Palermo is the capital of the Italian island of Sicily and a main access route to Sicily for passengers and goods. Thanks to its favourable geographical position Palermo represents a strategic landing place for navigation in the Mediterranean. The city it serves is the capital and the major economic centre of the island. The port is managed by Autorita’ di Sistema Portuale del Mare di Sicilia Occidentale (AdSP – Western Sicilian Sea Port Authority), which also manages the smaller ports of Trapani, Terminal Imerese and Porto Empidocle. It is also home to the Fincantieri Palermo Shipyard.
