276 Palermo (Sicily) Cruise Reviews

We toured the castle and the cathedral, both very good. We rode in these vehicles that were like a motor cycle with 3 wheels with a bench seat in back, quite a bit of fun!

We took a private day tour to Cefalu and Monreale. Cefalu is a cute little beach town and Monreale has some tremendous views and a truly beautiful cathedral. Our guide took us into Palermo for lunch, which took way too much time. In retrospect, I wish we had had more time to just walk by ourselves in Palermo, maybe just taxiing to Monreale for a quick visit. I was expecting these towns to be more like the small towns at the other end of Sicily, Taormina and Castelmolo. Read Less

We didn't know what to expect from Palermo. As we walked out, the locals were very aggressive trying to sell tours, reminded me of some Caribbean ports. We walked past all of them trying to get the bus to Mondello beach. At some point, one of them convinced us and we agreed to a 90 min tour in a motorcycle style car, ending in Mondello beach for 70€. The tour was nice and it saved us a lot of walking, but after we started, the driver kept renegotiating the rate. As far as Mondello beach, we were glad we went there. We stayed at the free part of the beach. There were restaurants to have a drink right at the beach. We also had lunch at da Calogero. The food, wine and service was great. If you like the beach, don't miss Mondello. 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.

However I did venture ashore and ended up in a new patisserie along the first block of sho p s you come to on exiting the port gates (go right) they had been open a week and were charming! So much so I had my picture taken with them behind the counter!!! Might think about a working holiday there!0 Read Less

Our English language cruise line excusrsion was cancelled; not enough sign-ups for English. So we listened to people selling tours on the pier, liked the price and convenience of this bus tour. We had a short walk from the pier to the bus. We mostly stayed on the bus, but hopped off to visit the Cathedral. Glad we did. Hopped back on the next bus and enjoyed our visit. Read Less

Walk-able from the ship, we love the place its very interesting but a bit of a culture shock if you have not been before. Worth having a meal out but try some of the smaller venues off the main track
