I have had this desire to go to Palermo for a long time. The fact that it has been conquered and settled by so many cultures was a great influence.  The Normans, the Phoenicians, the Romans, Spanish and the French all contributed to the feel of this chaotic city with their architecture, religion, food, theatre and music.  Like any great city, it takes more than just a couple of days to experience it. A minimum of a week is needed to get a feel for the vibration and flow of the city and its people. After spending a week there I was comfortable and had a good feel of the old city but ..read more
