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.

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).

Four of us walked from the port to the Capuchin Crypt about three miles each way! Great way to see the city and we got to see dead people!! Haha the Crypt is actually very fascinating.
I didn't really think much of Palermo at all we went on a bus trip of the city and I couldn't wait to get back on the ship

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.

Sicily was very dirty. Don't waist your time getting off the boat. Enjoy the day on the boat.

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.
