Cefalu

by orchid49

For shore excursion in Palermo, is it worth to join Cefalu trip about 5 hours trip or just do Palermo on our own.

Re: Cefalu

by domenicococozza

If you're taking a cruise ship shore excursion, you're gonna be limited timewise. Cefalu is well worth a visit but if the tour turns round in 5 hours, you,re not gonna see much of it. The journey time from Palermo is approx 1 hour in each direction. Assuming you will have to wait to board the bus(in both directions) you sould probably allow a further 20 minutes on each end. This will only give you approx 2.5 hours in Cefalu.
Palermo is an incredible city with more than enough to keep you busy all day.

Re: Cefalu

From Stazione Centrale in Palermo, seems all trains to Messina stop at Termini Imerese and then Cefalu. Nice to sit back - by the left hand side in the direction of motion - and view the Sicilian coastline past Bagheria, Campofelice etc. However, be aware that dependent on the number of stops/ train origin or destination to and from Palermo journeytime is either 40 minutes up to 58 minutes - if you are heading from Palermo it is worth trying for the more express train to Cefalu station.
A return from Palermo costs Eu8.00. There are fast ticketing machines which give change, or when not available a credit note - you will have to queue at the ticket desk to redeem this next time.
Personally - would stay in Palermo and concetrate on the area around Piazza Castelnuovo, the Teatri, 4 Corners, "Fountain of Shame". HAve a good idea of where you are going for the hours you have!

if this will be your only chance to see palermo then i'd take it, and it is a great city to explore on your own. i'd suggest spending time at the markets and to go out to monreale.

I will noy have much time and I would prefer strolling around the city. So I will skip Celafu.

Thanks.

Travel Tips for Palermo

Capuchin Catacombs

by matcrazy1

Capuchin Catacombs are without a doubt one of the most interesting, intriguing and gruesome tourist spots in the world. This place, which is sometimes referred to as the Museum of Death, contains some 8000 mummified bodies that date back to the 16th century. These bodies line the walls of the Catacombs, which is located directly underneath the Capuchin Convent.

The International Puppet...

by piccolina

The International Puppet Museum
Address Via Butera 1 - Phone 091-328-060
Hours Mon-Fri 9am-1pm and 4-7pm; Sat 10am-1pm
Admission € 2.60/$2.50
This is a fantastic museum that you cannot loose..
Pupi, as Sicilian puppets are called, have long been considered among the finest versions of the art of the marionette. The puppets are based on characters from the French chansons de geste. In the first room is the museum's collection of Sicilian puppets, many presented on stage and operated with strings. The most outstanding artisan here is Gaspara Canino, who achieved fame with his theater puppets in the 1800s. In other rooms of the museum you can see results of the marionette art in other countries, including the English Punch and Judy

Beautiful chapels (2): Oratorio di San Domenico

by tim76

More stucco splendour awaits you at the Oratorio di San Domenico. Its colours are warmer than Santa Zita's, but Giácomo Serpotta's statues are just as vivid and life-like.
The elegant ladies in the niches, representing the Virtues, and the scenes from the Revelation of St. John in the oval panels, all are wonderful Baroque creations.The angels and putti that seem to be swirling everywhere, give the chapel a very playful atmosphere.
Above the main altar a painting by the Flemish painter Antoon van Dyck, Virgin of the Rosary.

San Cataldo & La Matorana

by hquittner

La Matorana was built in 1143 and San Cataldo in 1160. The former got its name from an associated convent (long gone). They owe their raised positions from having been built on top of a partly demolished defensive wall from the Arab Citadel in this area. The Campanile of Matorana was built at the same time. In spite of Baroque encroachments La Matorana has fine old mosaics. They are as old as the oldest at Monreale. If you cannot go there, then a visit to la Matorana is a MUST. S. Cataldo's building was not finished with mosaics or marble (ran out of money?) and is severe. They charge admission to it. If you are not interested in Norman Romanesque architecture you may not wish to go in. We have created a Travelog for this area that should give you some ingight as to what they contain.

Sweet Palermo

by Bgem

TThis photo shows a typical site in Palermo - the common donkey carriages on the streets that gives tourist a ride through parts of the city for an open air tour.
--------------------------------------------------------
Surronded by the sea, the lemon grooves of the Cona d'Ora and the headland of Monte Pellegrino, Palermo is not the only administrative center of Sicily, but it is today Sicily only true city.
The city takes it name from the Port (Palermo is derived from "Panormus", meaning "large port"). It was through the port the island came in contact with the most advanced civilizations, developing a throughly cosmopolitian character, while due to its commercial city, enjoyed long and stable good fortune, protected and encouraged through centuries by various different cultures.
