While I love Palermo, I can appreciate as much of the next guy that chaos is everywhere – and this can be a stressful situation for a traveler.
I do many things for a living, among them is owning B&Bs. I meet everyday with visitors lost and wasting valuable time. All of this effort and most of these people only learn the very basics of our influential city.
They spent a great deal of time on the internet and acquiring outdated books offering little to no assistance about what to do when they are here. Worse still, these books are often written by those who do not even live in Sicily – let alone in Palermo.
As beautiful as the city is, it is always changing and lacking organization – navigating it should be in real-time and by the locals.
So I thought, why shouldn’t the locals create a travel guide that can updated daily. It can literally take the visitors by the hand and lead them through the city.
