My experience taught me that it is almost impossible to get clear working schedule of churches in Italy. Common practice shows that they can be opened between 09:00 and 12:00 hrs. Usually I try to come between these hours and sometime it works. So, my question is:
Does anybody know when are open churches san Francesco D’Assisi, Santa Maria dello Spasimo, Church and Cloister Della Magione, Santa Trinita and other churches built before 1530?
i was wondering if somebody could let me know about the limo company Sicily tour Service for their airport transfer service as i would like to get a limo booked for the same. Has anyone used their services? Should i go ahead with them? as i want a comfortable travel.
Dear travelers and especially citizens of Palermo,
Please, advise me, is bus #389 or 389P still transporting passengers from Piazza Indipendenza, Palermo to Cathedral at Monreale. Some people said me that this bus brings passengers only to foot of the hill but not transports to center of Monreale anymore. What is the real situation with that bus? Thank you in advance.
I'm travelling with friends to Eastern Sicily on Wednesday 13th May. We have a pretty tight itinerary as we are only staying for 4 nights. However, we have one free day at the moment, and are considering a trip to Savoca - we do have a rental vehicle. Does anybody have any knowledge of Savoca - particularly somewhere that 7 of us could have a relaxing lunch?
I am starting the early planning for an 8-day trip to Sicily in April 2016. Roughly 4-days on the west and 4-days on the east. We have climbed to the top of Mount Etna before, so we do not need to do that. We are interested in the history, the ruins, wine, olive oil, and pistachios.
• Agrigento – Ruins
a. Trapani – Salt pans and museum
b. Erice – Funicular to top of mountain
• Palermo – Hub city for four days.
• Corleone – just because – CIDMA museum
• Marsala – Possible, not sure
• Segesta – Ruins
• Eryx – Ruins
• Taormina – Second hub city for three days.
• Catania – Last city, fly home.
• Olive Oil Farm – Azienda Agricola Mandranova near Palma di Montechiaro
• Pistachio – Tour farm, possibly near Bronte
• Winery or two
Any other thoughts? Did I miss anything? Tour guides? Thanks for any tips or suggestions.
According to the law adopted on June 1 2014, known as "Decreto Franceschini" because of Italian Minister of Culture Dario Franceskini, visitors became allowed to take noncommercial photos without flash light and tripod in all state and municipal museums of Italy.
My questions are:
1. Is this low is still active?
2. Are visitors allowed to take noncommercial photos in museums of Palermo?
3. In Cathedrals of Palermo and Monreale, in Diocesan Museum (belongs to Diocese)?
Thank you in advance. Oleg
