Palermo Secrets

Among Palermo’s many qualities is an air of mystery, especially towards dusk. Perhaps it’s due to the city’s deep and often troubled history, perhaps the unpolished instability of its streets. Bars can disappear from one day to the next, and new graffiti springs up frequently. Battered doors which were locked yesterday are open tonight, revealing strange courtyards. This city would make a perfect setting for a chilling film noir.

      No, I took the pictures from the bus 🙂 Is it a good place for food. Not sure if we will ever make it out there to eat but if you tell us it’s worth it we might go, hehe.

    The photo of Porta Felice, with the palm tree hiding the moon is so so beautiful! When did you take that?

    Thank you for your realistic look enhancing at the same time beauty and sense of decay, I lived in Palermo several years and also for this reason I have loved it 🙂
