This place is located 2 blocks from the airport shuttle and in the center of old Palermo. Guisseppe is very helpful and makes a great cup of coffee in the morning with breakfast. I would recommed it. Clean, very clean and good budget option.

To be honest, we had been disappointed with Sicilian food, particularly as it is rated so highly by the ...
The intricate detail of the nude male genitalia is truly a bit hard not to notice. Carmelo laughed, explaining to us that when the fountain was first unveiled in 1575, the public outcry from the local people attending the nearby churches was so intense that they dubbed it as the Fontana dell Vergogna - or Fountain of Shame. Various tourist guides describe the fountain as "captivating". Well, it certainly was memorable.
