Palermo – Not just a Cruise Ship Destination

Almost every day, it seems like another massive cruise ship docks at Palermo’s port, and thousands of tourists pour out like molten lava. With only a few hours to see everything Palermo has to offer, they hop on the big double-decker sightseeing buses which cruise around the historic center. Maybe they’ll have a chance to visit the Norman Palace or the Catacombs but, after a couple hours, it’s right back onto the ship. I wonder how many of them are captivated by the city’s charm, and promise themselves to return.

Nothing against cruise-shippers, of course, we’ve been there ourselves. But in such a short time, it’s almost impossible to soak in the little details which make Palermo such a special place.
