Welcome to the University of Palermo, Italy. It was founded in 1806 and is now one of the largest universities in Italy. The buildings of the university are quite all over the city, some old, some new, and some with great history. Enjoy the visit!
The university of Palermo was founded in 1806 by Ferdinand III of Bourbon, King of Naples and of the two Sicilies. Now it is one of the largest universities in Italy with over 65,000 students coming mainly from the west side of the island. It is mainly based in Palermo but is also present in Agrigento, Caltanissetta, and Trapani.
