A must-see in the very heart of Palermo is the Capo outdoor market. This ancient market has been doing business at the same location so long that no one really remembers when it began. The colors, the activity, the bargaining amid the shouts of sellers...More

When being in Palermo it's a must to visit one of the typical markets where locals use to buy fruit, fish, typical local seeds and spices and other 'cheap' goods. Looking for an alternative to 'Vucciria' where we went to in the past, we decided...More
