    Perfect representation of this whole town

    This town is the crappiest town in the Western world I've ever visited, and the hostel is a microcosm of that. Seems like it could be great if anyone cared enough to keep it up. Nobody cares, and it rots away. Don't stay here, but better yet--don't come to this city.

    ... or sold outside. It was quite an experience. Salvatore was our guide. We had a couple from Australia and a family from Connecticut in our group. We all shared many different foods so we could try as many as possible. Most of the foods cost between 1-5 euros. Traditionally this was the poor man's food. The market vendors sell the food during the day, and what they don't sell they cook in the evenings and sell it cheap so ...

    ... class. We also made swordfish rolls. These are very popular in Sicily and we saw them throughout the markets. The recipe says to ask your fishmonger to slice the swordfish as thin as possible. Don't think this is happening in Asheville! (Notice the picture of the swordfish being sliced. ) The bell pepper, caper and black olive salad was good. We baked the peppers in a very hot oven until they were blackened on all sides and then covered them with plastic wrap to make moisture. ...

    ... a peninsula. We walked around the streets in town and then found a restaurant which Tom wanted to go to. It was recommended to us by Sylvestro, who did our cooking class last year in Lecce. It was also #3 restaurant in the Top 10 Sicily tour book. As expected, our food was wonderful! Driving on the main highways is fairly easy. Driving in Palermo is a nightmare! Tom has nerves of steel! I don't think motorcycles are required to follow ...

    Catacombs He said it's freaky, but given how crazy I am, Pepe said I should see it. I was enticed. The moment I got in, I felt the hair on my skin stand. Skeletons clothed in robes, some monks, some priests, some officials, others, civilians -- and all sorts of people of different ages -- all hung from the walls. It was eerie! I ...

    ... are all acquitted for lack of evidence.
    The mafia keeps trying to erase the memory of Verro even after his death: in 1917, all the Socialist parties of Italy sent money to Corleone to sculpt a bust representing Verro. After the bust is completed and exposed, it gets stolen and never found again.
    In 2012, the municipality decided to move the remains of Verro from the cemetery to a chapel in a Church of Corleone: the descendants of Verro declare that the body has been moved ...
