Little Citizens of the World

Palermo, Sicily

Leave a comment

The woman that talks about the ports of call said, when it comes to Palermo, you either love it, or hate it.  Personally, I was not a fan.  Again, I’m sure outside of the port there are some beautiful places but I just didn’t like it.  It was crowded, dirty, there was traffic everywhere, The buildings were covered in spray paint and it smelled.  It seriously smelled.

We walked up into town looking for a square or something, but there was nothing.  It was awful.  We walked for about half an hour before turning back towards the ship.  As we got back to the waterfront, there was one of those little tourist trains.  We decided to take the one hour tour and see if there was some nice area we may have missed.  There weren’t.

It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t great.  First of all, the streets are all cobblestone so bouncy doesn’t beginning to describe it.  I thought my bum was going to fall off with all the bouncing.  We did see a few nice buildings but I could have saved the 10 Euro and Googled Palermo.  We were back on board in time for lunch.
