Via Vittorio Emanuele is THE spot. It's touristy, but a must-see. There are many restaurants, hotels and street musicians. It can be crowded because it's the focal point of Palermo, but you should also explore other areas to get a taste of the local life.

A must to see in Palermo! This street is centrally located it is difficult to miss. We were in a hotel at this street, so we could just walk everywhere. Usually is full of people at night and bars are open until pretty much morning. It is a must to be place once in Palermo.

Walking this avenue is a great way to explore Palermo. One morning we walked from Porto Felice to Porto Nuova and passed dozens of points of interest.

We also detoured onto some of the smaller cross streets and found interesting neighborhoods and minor points of interest.

We stayed on Vittorio Emanuele, at Eurostars Centrale Hotel. It’s a good street to wander along as a large part of it is pedestrianised (although you still have to keep an eye out for some vehicles).
It is a long street, connecting the Porta Felice monumental city gates and the northern city gates at Porta Nuova. That makes it kind of interesting to start at one end and and finish at the other.
There are hotels, shops and restaurants but what you also see as you walk along is decaying Baroque palazzos contrasting with colourful and sometimes shabby apartment blocks, with rows of wrought iron balconies and flapping washing. We also liked looking out for the smaller details like the decorative iron cast lamp posts and lanterns and the strange 3 legged trinacria symbol of Sicily.
The main point of interest is Quattro Canti which is at the midway point. This is where the historic 4 quarters (Loggia, Kalsa, Albergheria and Capo) all meet and where Corso Vittorio Emanuele intersects with Palermo’s other main road, Via Maqueda.
Architecturally, it’s a striking and unusual square with 4 matching concave Baroque buildings, facing inwards to create a circular space. The facades are highly ornate, with cherubs and fountains and statues of kings and saints.

We stayed close to Via Vittorio Emanuele and there is a nice bar with tables and benches on the street. It is lovely to sit and watch watch the world go by with a drink. There is a different clientele on different evenings. The staff are really friendly and one evening when we stopped for a drink on our way back to our hotel around 7pm they brought out some small filled rolls and some nights they brought out crisps. Later in the evening it can get busy. The drinks are reasonably priced. I would recommend stopping for a drink.

Stretching from Porta Nuova in the south this road runs past the cathedral and through Quattro Canto to Porta Felice in the north - most of it is now pedestrianised. Lined with high buildings, many with ornate carvings which were once grand houses, this street is now home to hotels, shops and restaurants and is an interesting place to wander along during the day and evening.

An interesting street, at least from the main gate (Porto Nuova) past the cathedral and along to the end of the (allegedly) pedestrianised area. In this case, "pedestrianised" just means slightly less traffic and marginally less chance of being mown down by a moped or vehicle!

Not a bad street, some interesting shops and restaurants: it hasn't given way entirely to tourist shops, which is a blessing.

This is a lengthy street running between Porta Felice at Foro Italico Umberto 1 and Porta Nuova, and intersects with Via Maqueda at Quattro Canti. It is regarded as the oldest street in the city and dates to Phoenician rule in Sicily. During past centuries the street has been reconstructed, the layout adjusted, buildings demolished to lengthen the route, there have been various name changes with the current name dedicated to King Victor Emmanuel II following the unification of Italy. The street is a pedestrian area between the Cathedral and Quattro Canti and there are numerous piazzas, historic sites and buildings, shops and restaurants to interest the visitor. Its a busy area, thronged with tourists.
