Long considered a strategic prize, the Sicilian city of Palermo has changed hands dozens of times throughout its tumultuous history. Spend time here on your Europe cruise and you’ll find remnants of Viking, Arab, Roman, and Phoenician cultures to name just a few. Visit the Temple Valley of Agrigenro, a UNESCO Heritage Site. Take a panoramic city tour to see the highlights, then visit the impressive Catacombs of the Capuchin Friars, where more than 8,000 mummified bodies of monks, noblemen, and citizens are dressed in their original 15th century clothes. The most touching sight is the body of Rosalia Lombardo, almost perfectly preserved though this baby girl died in 1920, at the tender age of two.
