We went on the sightseeing bus for this and it was brilliant although really, really hot on the open top bus. The commentary is brilliant and well worth the price altogether. You get old and new Palermo plus for an extra five euro you go...More

We walked a good 45 minutes over the bridge to the bus stop near the cruise ship port. Get a taxi instead. The route itself was fine, typical hop on/hop off bus. It poured while we were there and the covering over the top did...More

When we read this review, we thought that is clearly false. You can check on GOOGLE MAPS the distance between our bus terminal (the bus stop. 1, in Emerico Amari n. 142, street) and the port (gate “Amari”): around 450 meters (6 minutes on foot)....More

Be careful of this company. They are unreliable. We wasted over 3 hours waiting at stops where the buses did not ever come. When I complained they said the stops were out of service. We were never advised of this and other travellers had the...More

We are sorry for your unlucky tour, but in Palermo there are two different companies, operating with open top buses, RED COLORED! But there is no agreement between them. Therefore we’d like to suggest to pay more attention about it: you can see our buses...More

Palermo is nice city. Nice old buildings and monuments. I suggest city sightseeing with bus because it is easiest way to see all beautiful places in palermo like Massima theater etc.

This city that was almost blasted off the map by navel guns in world war II, is stunning. The restoration over the decades since the 1950s has brought back the wonderful 16th and 17th century architecture. I can easily imagine spending a week exploring this...More

The literature that I'd read said you either love Palermo or hate it. I was not terribly fond of it. I found it smothering, the traffic was chaotic and all I could smell was exhaust. The people were very nice, lots to see. We went...More

With its bustling streets and fervent energy, Sicily‘s capital city of Palermo is a medley of medieval buildings, Byzantine palaces and post-war grunge. It lacks Florence’s beauty and Venice’s vibrant colors, but has the unpretentious flair and confidence of a city that has survived centuries...More
