Good mornining folk!
What about celebrating the Labour Day keeping on the discover of our splendid island? It’s time for the last of our 9 provinces… the last but not the least!
Palermo is in fact the capital of Sicily. The 12th-century Cathedral of Palermo houses royal tombs, while the imposing neoclassical Teatro Massimo is famous for its opera performances. Also in the center you can find Il Palazzo dei Normanni, a royal palace dating back to the 9th century, and the Palatine Chapel, with Byzantine mosaics. Busy markets include the central street market Ballarò and La Vucciria, near the port.
In Sicily there is a dilemma that is often on everyone’s mouth and is not the one concerning the Bridge over the Strait of Messina… is it said arancina or arancino? In Palermo, in fact, it is said arancina (and has a round shape), arancino in Catania (where it is also pointed), so much so that it is enough to ask a Sicilian what this specialty is called to understand its origin: or western or eastern.
Our trip to Sicily has come to an end, we hope you enjoyed it!
