On the northern coast of Sicily, sweetly nestled in a picturesque valley, halfway between Palermo and Cefalu, Termini Imerese is wedged between the sea and the steep slopes of Monte San Calogero, the mountain that marks the beginning of the Madonie Mountains. View from the sea, Termini presents an image like typical postcard of a city of the Sicilian coast. The town overlooks the beautiful bay and offers a view that stretches from Palermo to Cefal¨.
The city called "Civitas Splendidissima" has its roots in ancient times. History and legend intertwined over time, linked to Himera and to its fascinating history, to the legendary waters gush made thanks to the beautiful and hospitable nymphs, followers of Minerva, to replenish tired bodies of the demigod Hercules. The Thermae Himerenses, after the Carthaginians in 409 a.C. destroyed Himera, welcomed the Imeresi, and so, the local indigenous population joined people of Greek origin and the two races gave birth to a single population.
The town is divided into two parts: Termini Bassa (Lower Termini) and Termini Alta (Upper Termini). Almost all the historical attractions are located in the upper area of the city: the Cathedral, the Belvedere, which offers a spectacular view of the sea, the Villa Palmeri, a public park and a garden full of shade trees where there are Roman ruins, the Fortress of the Castle. Termini is famous not only for its thermal waters but also for its Carnival festival which is ranked along with Acireale's and Sciacca's Carnevales as one of the best in Sicily. The proximity to the capital and its airport, the rail links, the presence of tourist and commercial port, the beauty landscape, the mild climate, make the stay in Termini Imerese pleasant throughout the year.
