Palermo
Port Rating: 1.0 out of 5+

MSC Cruises needs to drop this port from the itinerary. This city is ugly, dirty and very poor! I took a city tour and they made us go thru the flea market, which is in a ghetto where people are so poor and dirty that they live in tin houses! Unbelievable! Nothing exciting to see there. It would be better to stop in Salerno with a tour to Amalfi/Capri, or in Cefalu and tour the roman ruins. Please drop Palermo!

A fantastic resort island! Loved the beaches, tapas bars, the old town and the night life!

This is a great stop because it allows you to go to either Monte Carlo (which I did) or Nice. Both cities are spectacular and definitely worth visiting!

I also loved this port because you can either stay in Genoa and tour the city, or take a train to Portofino, which is about 1.5 hours away. I did not have enough time to get to Portofino because of poor planning on my part, but made it to Santa Margarita, which is also a very nice villa on the Italian coast. This port is a keeper!
