The green in Palermo is situated above all in its vegetative setting that has called it “Conca D’Oro”. There are not many green areas in the city, except for the Parco della Favorita at the foot of Monte Pellegrino. Other green spaces are more in character than Ville e Giardini, some of considerable interest such as the Botanical Gardens or the refined Parco D’Orleans and the English Garden.

In short, what is there is certainly of great value and it is worth visiting and above all knowing better.
