    I am from Denmark, btw. Should I be careful? Is there many mob people? And migrants?

      I’m also trans, not sure if that matters.

        Welcome back. Were your bags stuffed with drugs in Italy?

          They’re doing that in Italy too now? Thanks, I’ll add it to the warning list.

    I will also be staying in a comfy AirBnB. I vehemently refuse to be molested in some scrappy hostel with drug addicts

    >What should I see?
    The various Arab-Norman UNESCO sites
    Teatro Politeama and Teatro Massimo
    The summit of Mt. Pellegrino and the sanctuary of S. Rosalia
    Mondello beach (they've just placed a ferris wheel too)

      Forgot to mention the Quattro Canti and Piazza Pretoria, but you'll find them in your trajectory if you keep walking from Teatro Massimo (which you reach walking from the other theater).
      If you want a museum, there's the Antonino Salinas archeological museum. If you're willing to leave the city, you could take a trip to the Valley of Temples near Agrigento.

      Make sure to try local specialities in bars, delis and restaurants.

    Take the bus up to Monreale, also go look at the other norman and arab stuff that is scattered across the city.

    Go to the Monreale Cathedral. Bit of a b***h to get to with public transport, but worth it.

    Palermo itself was not the favourite part of my Sicily trip as it feels dodgy, and we definitely had people tailing us. So try not to go out at night much.

      Why would people follow you around?

      Italian from north Italy here. Visited Palermo last April with my gf because of a friend's wedding. The city is beautiful, there's so much to see and visit, the real problem with Palermo and in general with Sicily it's his inhabitants. Sicilians are some of the laziest, most indolent people I ever had the pleasure to interact with, I mean I'm not saying they're bad but they just don't give a single flying frick. The city is dirty and full of trash everywhere, no one recycle or use trash cans, common areas like parks and squares are left to rot in the sun, I've seen countless monuments and churches sprayed with tags and graffiti. You see young kids riding motorcycles without helmets, no one respects driving rules, I saw a bunch of people grilling in the middle of the street. Really gives some south American vibes, some may like it, some not, like me. Also good luck paying with card there, weirdly any POS in town doesn't work or is under maintenance.

      Again, the city has a lot to offer and the food is simply amazing, and as a Danish everything will be super cheap to you. I think you will enjoy your staying.

      The most recent corpses are still almost 100 years old, the smell is long gone my friend

      Definitely sounds Third World.

          That's the same impression I got. People just don't give a frick. Mountains of trash everywhere. Cars double parked everywhere. Everything looks very run down. It's mainly Palermo though, as soon as you get into another city like Trapani it's already a lot cleaner.

            That's what other people also told me, apparently it's a Palermo thing, as soon as you get out of the city the rest of Sicily gets way better.

            >I saw a bunch of people grilling in the middle of the street.
            Did it emit a pungent odor? Those were probably street sellers of stigghiola.

            I think it was just a bunch of neighbors having fun, they were just starting the grill but didn't look like vendors.

          FRICK recycling, literally just a scam to fine you. I have seen those breakdowns, they only recycle like 10% of all thats collected and the rest goes into the landfill. Also when you have to carry different bags of shit down 3+ flights of steps and theres no fricking space outside your block to even put your “recycling” AND your b***hy 100 year old neighbours claim you have taken their space, then yeah I am going to dump my trash wherever. FRICK boomers, FRICK the generation before them, FRICK the government and FRICK recycling. Pick it up janny, thats what my taxes are supposed to be funding.

    I have arrived in Palermo. Everything looks very run down. Trash overflowing cans. Reminds me of Beirut and Tunis. Doesn’t feel like Europe at all. Weather is nice, but very humid in the afternoon. People seem ok.
