Impressions of Palermo

Most people think of Sicily's capital city Palermo as noisy, dirty and chaotic. In some districts of the old city this is fairly accurate! And in the summer tourist season, the locals are joined by hordes of tourists thronging through its narrow streets. Yet Palermo can also be very different. The Trip Tipp photos below show this other, very serene side of the city.
