- This is a great neighborhood near the harbor and Giardino Garabaldi. Lots of restaurants and bars, and interesting shopping on some of the side street.
The area was very lively after 9:00 pm with packed bars and people enjoying themselves outdoors.Written July 31, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- This place is a bit tricky to find, we asked lots of people and got sent on wild goose chases but found it eventually. First catacombes I have ever visited. The archaeolgist/guide was very good but would have liked a booklet to buy to take home to read at leisure. Definitely worth booking, it's very interesting I could have listened to the history all day.Written September 15, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We loved Palermo. Our hotel Mercure Centro was great, comfortable and fantastic location. The city is very interesting with lots to do even tho it was Easter. Not the best town in Sicily, but wonderful just the sameWritten April 18, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This street runs from Via Vittorio Emanuele to Via Papireto and without doubt the most important features are the Cathedral and the Archbishop's Palace. They dominate the street, both imposing buildings, the towering campaniles, dual arches overhead, statues and the wonderful architecture. Excellent views from the upper deck of the bus. There are probably other notable sites on this street but I have to admit that I didn't notice
The street is named after Matteo Bonello, an aristocrat who offered his house as a haven for rebels who had taken arms against the king. He was offered a pardon in exchange for the rebels but when he returned to Palermo, he was imprisoned, blinded, maimed and left to die.Written July 8, 2018
