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.

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.

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.

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.
