    Loud, noisy and busy but that it part of the attraction. Plenty of stalls selling fresh fish, fruit and vegetables with enthusiastic vendors crying out, across the market, inviting you to sample their produce. There were many locals shopping there, which is a sign of how good it is and I have to say that walking through, some of the smells coming from the stalls was very enticing, and although I did not stop to eat, there were plenty of people who seemed to be enjoying their food, very much.

    Place not to be missed,authentic food and fish market with great atmosphere. The fish section is fatntastic and eye-catching. If you like fishes you have to come and taste from fresh meat starters to grilled fishes or octopus. Oyster (1,5-2 Euro) portion of sea urchins (5Euro). Even if you will not pick any fish is interesting just to watch around. Open everyday till 15:00.

    If you compare with Milano it’s small, plenty of people in budget stores, not much in more expensive ones.

    If in Palermo, visit the market, even if you don’t stop to eat. We did and were pleasantly surprised. It is very busy and crowded, keep valuables out of sight. Most of the stalls sell similar stuff but it’s interesting to see and sample local life and it’s free.

    All kinds of vendors and merchandise, make for a sometimes sublime and sometimes gritty street scene. Great for people watching. Just wander around.

    I am really proud of people that involved in this place creation/management.
    This sort of park/museum is an innovation that needs to be comprehended and appreciated. It is quite pleasing!
    My colleague and I found workers patient and willing with us.
    The restaurant there is so lovely: typical tasty Sicilian food with the nicest staff in the town. I have to say thank you to the owner, because he had the idea of creating a modern but old Motel at the same time using his parents'house.
    In my opinion, a tour guide that explains the real symbol of the place is the only thing that is missing.
    Good job!

    I would not pay a tour to go there! But it is a nice experience if you are walking around and if you like markets. You can see and buy from everything, since food, meat, vegetables, fruit, clothes, shoes, electronics,….

    Our group guide encouraged us to walk through and see all that Siracusa had to offer at this mercato. With very little time to shop my goal was cheese. While we did pass the famous sandwich shop with a line out the door we continued into the busy market area. Fish was displayed beautifully and looked so fresh. Spices, nuts and huge mounds of tomato paste were very doing a brisk business with local cooks. If only I could bring it all home. We spotted a cheese stand with large wedges of parmesan already shrink wrapped. The price seemed reasonable and the man selling was charming. No haggling, we paid the man! If you go ask you guide to accompany you to help find deals and what is in season. This market also has lots of clothing, belts, ceramics, handbags and trinkets seen all over Sicily.

    I have been to Catania first, one year ago and then Palermo, this year. I read in a few places than Palermo has more to offer.

    I guess it is because of the architecture and it is a bigger size city than Catania. Nothing else from my point of view.

    Personally, I liked more Catania. Palermo I found it more disorganised, chaotic and noisy than Catania. Architecture is nice and culturally, the history is good. The airport is much more apart than Catania and there are less places to see around. In Catania for example, you can easily go to Syracuse, Messina, Taormina.

    Another point, perhaps I was not lucky really, people in Palermo tended to be less smiley, unfriendly and showed like a fatigue attitude

    We purchased a combi ticket for the permanent exhibition and also the temporary Leonardo di Vinci exhibition. First thing to say is that the fact that some of the exhibits are unlit (see various reviews below) you are informed of this before buying a ticket and your ticket is sold at a reduced rate as a result. The combi ticket was 12,00€ per person which was great value. The LdV exhibition explores his drawings and displays them alongside multimedia interactive modern interpretations. Very cleverly done with sound and projections. The permanent exhibition is a wonderful range of paintings and sculpture. Would thoroughly recommend particularly during the heat of the day. This would have got a 5-star review if it had it hadn’t been for some of the staff very noisily chatting to each other and/or having their mobile phones on all the time and not on silent!! Certainly spoilt the atmosphere at times. Nice gift shop. There’s also a cafeteria (didn’t try) too.

    A nice market but not as big as Mercato ogni giorno Dominca in Piazza Santa Luccia which is also a flea market.
    Still if you stay in Ortigia, you can visit it as it is really close to the Apollo Temple and the other attractions.
    There are many things that can catch your eyes and might be worth the bargaining ...and the purchasing.
    At night, when it closes the restaurants open and it is still a quite enjoyable place to be

    First time visit. Beautiful layout and a very good range of shops. Food court is very good but limited inrange, though we did enjoy eating there. Conveniently located especially if travelling by personal car. Closeto other outlets. A visit is a must for any visitors.

    A few great pieces and some other works of lesser interest. Do your homework and pick this or the modern (1800s on) to suit your taste if time is short.
