    We wandered around the market for a while but it was near the end of the morning so traders were starting to pack up.
    Compared with the little shops we had used in Cefalu, the quality of fruit and vegetables was excellent and the prices were cheap.

    Spanish, Greeks and Italians enjoying Ballaro'

    You will find some street markets in Palermo, as well as in almost al other Italian cities. Two of them are the most known and large: Vucciria and Ballaro'; not very far one from the other. Vucciria is on the sea-side of via Roma and Ballaro lies in the corner between Vittorio Emmanuele and Maqueda streets.
    Don't worry: you are welcome to walk amid the stalls!

    Palermo, Vucciria with the Market and Kalsa. It´s normaly very dangerous because these are very poor parts of Palermo, but if You get the possibility go there and you´ll see Palermo with different eyes.
    It´s better to hide your camera and don´t walk like a tourist with your guide book in the hands
