Mondello - beach area of Palermo

The reality here was that we showed up from our city hotel in Palermo in ferragosto and walked from one end to the other looking for the 'quiet bit' (oh, stop it.....) Didn't fancy paying Eu22 for two beds and an ombrellone for the afternoon, so went about trying to secure enough space to lie two beach towels side by side. We succeeded but only by inconveniencing the rest of the sardines. We did not go back.
Pity, as, you will agree from the picturesit has some lovely views and pleasant cafes. Seems it is also the spot for the passageiato of an evening, but high season was just a no go

View from the fountain

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Pretty views away from Palermo's traffic
  • Cons:Claustrophobic for lonely sardines
  • In a nutshell:Would be very nice out of season
