We went to the catacombs in the morning. It took 50 mins to walk there but it was an interesting walk through old markets. The mummies were quite spooky but worth a visit. Just hoping i dont have nightmares. Then walked to the old historic area which was lovely and lots of cool buildings. Its an easy place to walk around and enjoyed it. It is pretty dirty though and there is rubbish everywhere - all the bins were overflowing and it looks like they havent been emptied for weeks.
Carriage ride around town with Joseph our driver who seemed to know everyone. Enjoyed gelato & locally made wine.

There are many stands right at port exit selling tickets. No need to buy in advance. Can pay with credit card. There's a promotion for City Sightseeing Hop on Hop off bus (EUR15 only). City Sightseeing offers a free shuttle bus to stop no.1. City Sightseeing HOHO has lousy commentary. No extra info provided. Very old worn out seats. There's actually nothing much to see. You can just walk from port, straight up the road, Via Settimo (shopping street), Via Maqueda (pedestrian street), to the Cathedral and back.

Despite some of the reviews on here Palermo is a great port. Within a ten minute walk from the ship you can be in great side streets with fabulous bars and restaurants. We had a fabulous meal at a very good price.
The city was a very short walk away from the ship. We did a train that took us around the city. It was only 20 Euro for both of us.
