I'm coming for 2 weeks to Sicily and plan to spend day or 2 in Palermo. We are driving a car, but having read a lot of horror stories of traffic in Palermo, I booked 2 nights in Monreale, planning to go by bus. But... I've also got tickets to the Massimo theater and was told that taking bus at night won't be an option. So what is the easiest way to get from Monreale to Palermo and back, and if we need to go by car, where can we park to make our driving less stressful and parking safe?
Hi I will be in Sicily for about a week and need a car ,am travelling alone can u suggest a decent company to use?
My experience taught me that it is almost impossible to get clear working schedule of churches in Italy. Common practice shows that they can be opened between 09:00 and 12:00 hrs. Usually I try to come between these hours and sometime it works. So, my question is:
Does anybody know when are open churches san Francesco D’Assisi, Santa Maria dello Spasimo, Church and Cloister Della Magione, Santa Trinita and other churches built before 1530?
According to the law adopted on June 1 2014, known as "Decreto Franceschini" because of Italian Minister of Culture Dario Franceskini, visitors became allowed to take noncommercial photos without flash light and tripod in all state and municipal museums of Italy.
My questions are:
1. Is this low is still active?
2. Are visitors allowed to take noncommercial photos in museums of Palermo?
3. In Cathedrals of Palermo and Monreale, in Diocesan Museum (belongs to Diocese)?
Thank you in advance. Oleg
Dear travelers and especially citizens of Palermo,
Please, advise me, is bus #389 or 389P still transporting passengers from Piazza Indipendenza, Palermo to Cathedral at Monreale. Some people said me that this bus brings passengers only to foot of the hill but not transports to center of Monreale anymore. What is the real situation with that bus? Thank you in advance.

I am planning to travel from Palermo to Modica by public bus on October 5, Sunday. I have heard that the AST Bus Line goes there. Is that true? How many buses would operate on a Sunday?
I am wondering if there is public transportation from Palermo to Selinunte. I found a posting from 2006 that states one can take the SALEMI Bus Lines service to Castelvetrano (100 minutes) and then transfer to a local Salemi orange mini-bus (25 minutes) to the Selinunte archeological site. The posting said that I could buy the Palermo to Castelvetrano round trip bus ticket a the Salemi lines ticket office on Via Balsamo and then purchase the ticket to Selinunte directly on the local bus.
However, this posting was in 2006 and I will be going in late September. I am wondering if the information is still current.

We would like to hire a driver to meet us at the ferry and take us to a market, Monreale and then the airport where we will pick up a rental car and head out of town. I've read not to drive in Palermo. Any recommendations for a trustworthy car and driver for a half-day of sightseeing?
I am planning a two week vacation in Sicily in early October next year. I am reluctant to drive in a foregin country so I am more inclined taking the train or the bus. My priliminary itinerary is Palermo, Catania, Messina, Syracuse, Monreale, Ragusa, Modica, Agrigento, and Trapani. It is probably too ambitious for only two weeks. I need to know how to get around Sicily connecting these places by either train or bus. Any suggestions are welcome.
