Palermo, Sicily Cruise Port

About Palermo, Sicily

Once regarded as Europe's grandest, most beautiful city, Palermo is still quite impressive. The Four Corners of Palermo, where each 17th-century Spanish Baroque facade is adorned with a statue, is one of the city's most memorable sights. The Fontana Pretoria, often called the Fountain of Shame because of its nude Florentine figures, is also worth noting. Tour the famous Norman Cathedral and Capuchin catacombs.

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.

Palermo Street For tour - find it online though Viator was great. 15 minute walk form the pier to the Massimo Theater meeting place and then a delicious guided walk tasting food in the market and form street vendors in Palermo.

We had a very relaxing day in this port. Booked an excursion through Disney - Ricotta Making at Villa Daphne. It was a long bus ride through the town of Sicily, then to the vast countryside. We watched them make fresh ricotta cheese, my daughter participated in bread making, and then we enjoyed some time in the beautiful pool overlooking mountains. We had a wonderful Sicilian lunch, then went to a nearby farm for a milking demonstration. My kids loved this because they got to hold a baby goat! Fun day but a long bus ride both ways (almost 2 hours each way).
