A stroll in Palermo, the capital of Sicily.

I finally went down to Palermo. I lived my whole trip to Sicily in anticipation for this. I had great expectations about Palermo, especially after its Arab-Norman Cathedral was listed by Unesco among the world heritage sites.

Turin: an amazing bike tour

Last time I wrote about a bike tour of Turin I described the amazing Park of Valentino and its attractions. This time I took a completely different route, 90% of which on reserved bike lanes which led me from my home, close to Piazza Statuto (Constitution square), one of the most important hubs of the city, straight to the Hunting Lodge of Stupinigi, just outside the city borders, 11 km to the south (6 miles).
