The city was founded by the Phoenicians, who called it Mahanat, which is translated as "camp". The whole point is that in the first Punic War, using the geographic location of the settlement, the Carthaginians have organized there a base for its fleet. In the hands of the Romans, it was taken in 254 BC, and the emperor Augustus ordered to take Palermo as colony. But the hand-off was not over. It was conquered by Goths, then Saracens (at this period it became a major trading center), even the Norman conqueror Robert Guiscard got it too. And Roger II, a descendant of Guiscard, decided to make Palermo a capital of the Sicilian kingdom. Later, it was won by the French. Only in 1860, famous Garibaldi returned Sicily to the fold of Italy.

Palermo suffered greatly during World War II, especially the downtown. The historical center of the city is continued to recover until now, because it is very big - the second largest after Genoa. There is still a reconstruction of the most famous sights of this place. Hotels of Palermo are improving too. And do their best in order to reach the world’s highest standards.
