Our destination is the trendy neighbourhood of Palermo, where the tree-lined streets are home to some of the best bars and restaurants in town. Pull up a pew at an alfresco hangout and get to know your fellow Flashpackers, watching the city come to life after its post-siesta slumber. As people spill out into the streets, we’ll get into the local spirit and find ourselves some great food and wine. A known foodie city, it’s the steaks here that really get people talking. With the art of a juicy steak perfectly mastered, feast upon some grilled goodness and wash it down with a generous glass of local red (with plenty of veggie options available too). Then, as the café-culture steps up a gear into lively nightlife, be sure to hit up the Palermo bars and clubs with your new adventurer pals.
