Palermo Italy(10)

Palermo is the capital of Sicily. The 12th century Cathedral of Palermo houses royal tombs, while the imposing neoclassical Massimo Theater is famous for its opera performances. Also in the center are the Palazzo dei Normanni, a royal palace dating back to the 9th century, and the Palatine Chapel, with Byzantine mosaics. The crowded markets include the central street market Ballarò and Vucciria, near the port.
