Palermo is known for being one of the city’s artsy neighborhoods and it is scattered with both galleries and street art. The Hollywood sector is of course no exception and is also an area where local celebrities can be spotted as many a production company and studio is located in it. Below are some of the galleries to check out when roaming the streets on a color spree.
