  • The area around the harbour basin is somewhat run down - okay for a walk if you are in the area but don't make a special effort to visit. Some restaurants but nothing special and you'll just be...  more »
  • The main basin of the port, with many nice restaurants around, is full of yachts etc. However, they really have let the surrounding parts of the port go to seed. There's an opportunity here to make...  more »
  • Nice view at the port but water was dirty full of Plastics and cans
  • Great place to hang out when the heat is making you tire. This is the ancient fishing dock of Palermo.The sea breeze keeps this area cool at night when the tempetature gets too much to bear. Friendly party atmosphere abounds. If you want a drink it's best to use the smaller bars behind the Marina as the big places are always supe crowded and it takes forever to get a drink..remember to get a "Scontrino" or reciept first and bring that to the bartender as they can't accept cash over the counter.So go to the till, tell them what you need and when you pay you get a cardboard reciept which you then present to the bar tender and then get your round and go outside.Personally I prefer the backstreet bars which are more laid back. This whole area is a must for all ages. Best after 9 p.m.
