Itinerary Overview

During this trip we wanted to experience the Italian way of living and to get a good taste of La Dolce Vita. We had the pleasure to meet many local people and also see some amazing cities.  We also managed to taste some delicious Italian pasta and phenomenal coffee. All in all we stayed at one place in Mondello, which is the City close to Palermo that has a beach, because Palermo city only has a port and you can not go swimming there. From that Airbnb we also drove to other  places around the island that are really beautiful.
