Touring Palermo (Excursion)
This was the second largest city in the entire world at the turn of the last millennium, second only to Constantinople(Istanbul).
We got a 24 hour pass for the "open-top double-decker" tour bus (€15)which allowed us to do the red route, one afternoon and the blue route the following morning. The bus is hop-on-hop-off, so you can see as much or as little as you wish.
We find it best to sit on the bus for a complete circuit and then decide where we want to get off on the next go around.Howard and Jayne [ Just Imagine ] 17-May-2006
Teatro Politeama Garibaldi (Excursion)
Arenella Marina (Marina)
Perfect spot to stop and explore Palermo which is a convenient 20 minute bus ride away.
I think we paid €25 per night here. Friendly staff. Quaint surroundings if somewhat in need of paint and TLC.Howard and Jayne [ Just Imagine ] 30-May-2006
Bus stop to Palermo (Bus)
About a 20 minute bus ride to the outskirts of Palermo. Another 10 minute walk takes you to the Garibaldi theater where you can catch a open decker "hop-on,hop-off" tour bus around Palermo. There are two tourist bus routes, so it is best to buy a 24 hour pass and do one route the first day and the second route the next day.Howard and Jayne [ Just Imagine ] 17-May-2006
Palermo Harbour (Marina)
The floating docks are expensive at €90 for 50 ft.
Dock stern or bow to the inner breakwater. Not sure if lazy line moorings are available or if you need to anchor.
A dirty commercial harbour with a lot of traffic.
