The Italian city of Palermo is located in the north west of Sicily, by the Gulf of Palermo in the Tyrrhenian Sea. The city has a reputation across the world for its history, gastronomy, culture and architecture with a its origins dating back over 2,700 years. Many visitors flock to the city and it has become Sicily's main hub for culture, commerce and tourism. The city's centre has many examples of fine palaces and churches which give way to areas whose way of life doesn't seem to have changed for centuries. This is perhaps most evident in the markets in Palermo, whose Arabic origins can still be seen today thanks to the noise, aromas, colours, narrow streets and with the excellent array of produce on offer and the general 'souk's atmosphere.

From the city's port, ferry services operate to destinations include Genoa, with a crossing time of 21 hours, Civitavecchia, 14 hour crossing time, Naples, 10 hours and 30 minutes, and Tunisia, 10 hours. It is recommended that foot passengers check in 1 hour prior to departure and vehicles 2 hours prior to departure. For all departures to Tunisia check in should be 4 hours prior to departure.

Panarea Guide

Panarea is an Italian island that lies off the north eastern coast of the island of Sicily and is the second smallest of the Aeolian islands which are a group of volcanic islands. The island is popular with tourists who go there to enjoy its beaches and lovely scenery and for a small island, it is surprisingly well equipped. San Pietro on the island's east coast is the landing beach for the island and is also where most services and facilities are located. There is also a small port that caters for ships, hydrofoils, fishing vessels and pleasure boats.

Among the beaches on the island are Cala Junco, in the south of the island and is accessible both by sea and by land along a path that leads to the beach. Along the road to Cala Junco you can also reach the beach of Cala degli Zimmari. These are the only two beaches on the island accessible by land.

The small port accommodates ferries departing to Napoli and Milazzo.
