Seriouly poor tourist information. Even tourist guide books, in various language, are unavailable in tabbachis / bookstores. Do you want tourists The lack of exchange/cambio facilicties is disgraceful. What are your Banks for? Do they want business. Go anywhere else in the world and you can change money without too much a problem. Cantania Banks still live in the financial dark ages. Get it fixed. You reallly need a tourist supremo to organise things.
I love palermo. I've visited 7 times and find myself always wanting to return. It's soulful, alluring, exotic, beautiful, and in some areas, decrepit, but if you open your eyes and your soul, you'll see the beauty through the sometimes faded glory. the people are fine, the food is delicious and seasonal, and sicilian wines are getting better and better. Palermo is not Paris or even Rome… but what it is is very worthwhile. It is a unique place.
