Nice shopping mall with many good brand shops. However please people walking there with dogs. First time see it. It's a bit dirty, expensive, no water in toilet and grocer market... looks like there was no delivery for a while

I live in New York City and do not like mall shopping at all, but this a nicer experience. I guess because Coop was there. You can do everything under one roof. On the downside, it's too American looking...UGH. I love the small shops of Europe.

We spent our holiday in Cefalu, and was hoping to do some real shopping, so we took the train to Palermo and then a taxi to Forum. It costs about 20€ by cab. We should have googled this mall a bit better before going.. We were hoping to spend a LOT of hours shopping, but was finished after about 90... More

We went to Palermo for 3 nights, and I wish we never went! The city is a bit if a dump, graffiti everywhere, so noisey, hawkers selling cheap knockoffs, very smelly, the people are quite rude, minimal to no English spoken.. Thank goodness our airbnb host gave us tips on nice beachs to escape to and lovely restaurants nearby, or... More

The Forum in Palermo has so many stores and also hairdressers, restaurants and an amazing food hall buzzing with celebration of anything Sicilian. The ice-cream stores have so many flavours and the portion sizes are so generous; just like the personalities of the Italian, sorry, Sicilian people. Can't wait to go again soon!

We visited Palermo independently (wheelchair and all) while on a cruise port stop. Started at Monreale, then came back to the Palazzo Normanni and the Cathedral. Walked just about the length of Corso Vittorio Emanuelle, saw the unusual statues at the Quantro Canti and the Pretoria Fountain. We wandered through the Vucciria market, which was mostly a flea market, ended... More

After returning from our weekend break for my wifes birthday I just have to write this. Most of the locals were not to friendly and if you was only wanting a coffee or a beer and a rest then it was worse, there was a couple of exceptions though. It was very expensive with a small coffee being anything from... More

Wow--we LOVED this! Segways are so much fun! And Leo and our guide, Bianca, made this an all around amazing experience! From the carefully taught lessons to the interesting tour commentary, everything was perfect. I can't say enough wonderful things about our day! My kids (ages 15 and 13) both ended the day wanting segways for Christmas! :)
