  • Night review. It is cheap however it is very dirty, sometimes it smells of sewer. The pubs look nice and staff is friendly. There are a lot of seats outside.
  • Busy, historic market. Biggest in the city. Dirty as well, but tells a lot about Palermo :)
  • Crazy place with people yelling all over the place.
  • Cool spot for pot
  • Not to be missed, riot of colors, very low prices. We tried the sandwich with fried calamari, Eggplant with addition of Pacific ... Super delicious
