This area is near a lot of great "street" food restaurants and Palazzo Chiaramonte and Piazza Spirito Sancto. It is lovely to walk around and feels miles from Palermo center although being literally only a few steps.

Our cruise ship was berthed at the port for the day and so we spent the day wandering around Palermo. There are parts of Palermo, particularly, adjacent to the port, which are really quite seedy. As we were walking back to our ship along the...More
