Porticello Things to Do
You'll need a car or some good walking shoes for this one, but above the town of Porticello lies the ancient ruins of Salunto. Originally a Greek habitation it was expanded by the Romans.
There is a small museum but this has rather odd opening hours.
Take food and drink with you - there's nothing else on the hillside except the ruins and a restaurant that's only open in the evenings
Francu u Pescatore(using the Sicilian dialect)is renowned throughout the enviromns of Palermo as one of the best seafood restaurants in Northern Sicily. The menu is just a blackboard with the day's catch. The prices are shown ' per kilo' and you can view the fish on the marble slab, covered in ice, under the board.
Some tourists do find this place but you will be surrounded by locals.
The owner, Franco Crivello runs this busy restaurant with his family, and we've been using it for more than 20 years.
Favorite Dish: Pesce fritte misto, with a green salad and a bottle of local chilled Corvo
