For a young family Palermo is good for a few nights, plenty to see and do. My son loved Palermo and the Sicilians loved him wherever we went.
I'd recommend part beach and part city for the family, purely because you must go to Palermo and you must check out the stunning beaches. Granita everyday Is a must!!
Yes the fires are crazy, my friends are safe in San Vito and my friends in Napoli have been evacuated as they are in the red zone, it's so sad what's happening. To think 2 places close to my heart has suffered this is horrible
As for Zamp, he is doing what he does best. Ruin the club
