Palermo offers beautiful beaches and exceptional street food with a taste of seafood to many tourists from all around the world every summer. At the end of the season when everybody turns back to their routines it would seem like a nice vacation in a quiet city near the beach but its not. Instead of a crowd, screaming of salesmen bargaining, a smell of garbage, lack of transportation and one of the lively streets in Europe what youll find out in the end. Beaches are still crowded and a little bit dirty from the tourist storm during the season. Age level is around late 50s with a bunch of small children screaming around. It has still remarkable effects of Greek and Mediterranean cultures with a hint of Italian culture of tasty coffee and Europes best ice-cream in every corner. Its time to blend in and find your place in this chaotic excitement. Forget about resting holiday youll get plenty of strong coffee to keep you awake for the rest of your trip.
