Food, fire, trash, art and architecture; you get a little of everything on a random walk through Palermo. This city is a lot of things, but "boring" could never be considered one of them. Enjoy our last photographic impressions of Sicily's hectic and beautiful capital city.
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.
