38 Palermo (Sicily) Cruise Reviews

Not much truly interesting to see. Town seem pretty dead at least when we were there. Everything is approachable by foot. Just hit the main section and go back to the ship to enjoy the amenities.

It was raining and we had hoped to walk to some churches and a palace but abandoned our plans. In retrospect, I'm not sure a sunny day would have made Palermo very appealing.

We booked a Hop-On Hop-Off Bus tour. In all fairness, Palermo isn’t the prettiest city, but there are some interesting landmarks and sights throughout. This tour was a good way to see these sights in a kid friendly way.

Not much at the port. We have spent 3 nights in Palermo on our own a number of years ago - go to the old city.

Very dirty and run down, didn't enjoy this at all, apart from a great fruit, fish and vegetable market that we found. Filthy streets, one rubbish collector pushing garbage around from one place to another. Not very into cathedrals ... Read More
Very dirty and run down, didn't enjoy this at all, apart from a great fruit, fish and vegetable market that we found. Filthy streets, one rubbish collector pushing garbage around from one place to another. Not very into cathedrals etc, as at our age, we've seen a lot of places around the world. Read Less

We found Palermo rather run down and in need of some severe renovation, the city looked drab and was not very inviting at all. At times I never really felt comfortable.

Took the Hop-on, Hop-off bus with a recommendation to visit a particular street market that we had trouble finding and sorry we did. To me Palermo is a permanent traffic jam.

May be it is just us but I find this a difficult city to get round, the naughty fountain is worth visiting and the cathedral.

The town has been captured so often that the people have just given up. It looks like nothing has changed since 1860 during the Italian unifacation. The streets are trash filled with graffiti on every space available. We saw city workers ... Read More
The town has been captured so often that the people have just given up. It looks like nothing has changed since 1860 during the Italian unifacation. The streets are trash filled with graffiti on every space available. We saw city workers sweeping the beach into a pile of rubbish near the break wall, but that was it. The streets are so dillapidated and filthy that it feels unsafe. Read Less

The Ship excursion managers were not friendly. They were not mindful of the fact that we needed accessible exit. They even lost our excursion badges and it took them long time to figure out what to do next.
