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.
The Italian island of Salina is one of the Aeolian Islands and is a destination of nature lovers who will fall in love with the island's beautiful landscape that is made up of volcanic rocks and slopes of olive trees and capers. The island is less crowded that Lipari and is the greenest and most fertile of all the Aeolian Archipelago islands and is known for its charming villages where the progress of time seems to have stopped. For example, in Rinella, there is a lovely small harbour which is the perfect place to watch the beautiful sunsets and the way the locals decorate their houses always seems to catch the attention of tourists. In the east of the island is the village of Pollara where if you take the winding stairway down to the sea you will find the famous coastline where the famous Italian film director Massimo Troisi filmed the movie Il Postino (The Postman). This is Salina's most beautiful beach where visitors will find shallow, warm, clear waters filled with sponges, Moray Eels and Groupers. this is also a good spot for scuba diving and has some excellent underwater photography opportunities.
The island can be reached by hydrofoil and SNAV ferry from Messina on the island of Sicily.
