Travel Blogs from Palermo
Today we are in Palermo, we docked about 10 am and we went off at noon for a drive around the city. Palermo is the 5th largest city in Italy with a population of about 1 million. We drove around looking at the notable buildings and then went to Mt.Pellegrino.

Back on board we went back to the room to relax some more after first having a drink or two in the Savannah Bar (like we needed it). Caught up with Craig and Tammy as well and had a drink with them to see how their day ventured.
