The City Of Palermo


As with Italy be prepared to do a lot of walking. Have good walking shoes. Found Palermo cheap for eating. We did the tourist thing first night, eat early and had a pizza. Next day walked around Palermo.

I had not herd about the Mafia museum. Until I visit Palermo. We took the bus to Corleone from Palermo. Is about 1 & 1/2 hours.
The museum is very interesting and with a very good guide who explains everything.
She says many tourists, know about the Mafia from Hollywood and think the Godfather was filmed in Corleone. The town is good to walk. There is a Tourist information in the plaza opposite the bus stop. They will give you a map. Corleone Is a beautiful town and is nice to sit in the plaza in the evening and watch the world go by. I found the locals are friendly. Most people only visit for a day.
