... box, where Al Pacino sat during the movie. Palermo's opera house is the largest in Italy and the 3rd largest in the world.

In the afternoon, we took a bus up to Monreale, a city on a hill above Palermo. It is most known for it's beautiful Duomo which was built in 1147.

The place we are staying, Butera 28, is in an 18th century palazzo which overlooks the sea. In 1849 it became the property of Giulio Fabrizio Tomasi di Lampedusa, the Prince astronomer who would become the model for the main character in The Leopard. This novel was written by the Prince's great-grandson, Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa. The palazzo was the author's last home until his death in 1957, and is now the home of his adoptive son (the Duke) who has restored it to its ...

... so social -- they got socialised from the time they're babies! After finishing off at the restaurant with munchies, we drove to another place for "dinner". Pepe said "You're lucky, I bring you to the best restaurant in Palermo!" It was 10:30 by the time food was served! I fought myself from falling asleep! It was midnight by the team we finished.

Last day. Pepe brought me to his parents' place. Along the way he bought flowers and ...

Spoiler! Disclaimer! Corleone is NOT a mafia family! Corleone is a town, in Sicily, where some of the most powerful mafia families of the last 100 years came/come from, but it has nothing to do with the Corleone family introduced by the movie "The Godfather".

I went to visit Corleone with some German students who were doing a tour of Sicily with Addiopizzo Travel, the tour operator born from the Addiopizzo experience that offers pizzo-free tours in Sicily. The tour was guided ...
