Palermo is an old city whose roads date back to long before the automobile era. The roads are often narrow and one-way lanes are quite common; therefore, small and compact cars are far more suited for Palermo’s roads than an SUV or other large vehicles. This is especially so when you take parking into consideration, as space for a large vehicle will be very hard to come by.
The speed limits in Italy are fairly standard from city to city. Major highways post speed limits of 130 km/h (80 mph) and urban areas feature speed limits of 50 km/h (31 mph). Smaller highways tend to have speed limits of 110 km/h (68 mph), while local roads are around 90 km/h (56 mph).
Gas prices in Palermo, and throughout much of Italy, are unfortunately quite high. Drivers can expect to pay, on average, about €1.60 ($1.83) for a liter of gas while they are in Palermo, which comes out to about €6.05 ($6.93) per gallon of gas.
Parking in the central areas of Palermo can be a bit hard to come by at times, as many of the parking spots are reserved for residents with passes. In general, streetside parking is scarce and premium parking garages and lots are your best options for finding a space in the city center. However, as many of the sites and monuments are close to each other in Palermo, it may be worth it to simply park further out and then take a leisurely stroll into the main tourism areas.
