Parks of Palermo and Catania can seem menacing after dark, but if you take the usual safety precautions that apply to any big Italian city (be alert, hold bags and valuables in front of your body in crowded areas, and don’t flash jewelry; women keep to busier thoroughfares if walking alone in the evening), you’ll be fine. Nightclubs are scarcer in the smaller towns.
