Palermo, the heart of Sicily

Тази публикация е налична и на: bgБългарски


Great, sunny and smiling city. After the dirt and the homeless streets of Naples, Palermo seemed like a Swiss canton.
Significantly cleaner, more beautiful, with much more carefree and smiling people.
Wonderful beach locations are the Mondello neighborhood and the nearby Cefalu resort.

So, our day begins at dawn:

Пристанището на Палермо

The port of Palermo

It is not yet 7 pm and our ferry has arrived. The sun is still showing, and it is already warm and slightly stifled.
Piazza San Domenico Palermo

The balcony of our apartment in Palermo

We rented a great apartment. It’s called Casa 500G, located in the old Arabian neighborhood. As you can see, there is a huge terrace, half with a shelter, the other without, a wonderful living room, 3 bedrooms and excellent equipment.
Foro Italico Foro Italico 1

Foro Italico

The seafront promenade of Foro Italico. Just 5 minutes from our apartment. Wherever you look – a blue sea and beautiful rocks. There are plenty of comfortable lounges for sunbathing people lined with faience.
