Palermo (Armchair Traveller)

Palermo (Armchair Traveller) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Palermo's heart lies hidden under its many outer layers. In this unusual guide to the beautiful Sicilian capital, Roberto Alajmo uncovers each stratum to reveal its true character. Although disguised as a tourist's handbook, Palermo has much more to offer than ordinary recommendations for the intrepid traveller - it gives an insight into the city from a lifelong resident's point of view, showcasing its hidden cultural and culinary jewels; portraying its people, and their secrets; touching on its politics and contentious mafia involvement. Seeing Palermo with one's own eyes is an inef fable experience, even for Alajmo; the essence of the city, its beauty, is the only aspect left to the reader to discover.

Synopsis:

Famous sights, the scenes of murders, the gardens and parks, the alleys, and markets of Palermo.
