Voice of Travelers to Palermo
Niels from the Netherlands
Hi, I'm Niels from Amsterdam and I recently came back from Palermo. I flew to Palermo from Amsterdam with Transavia. I booked my ticket few months in advance and got a really good price. The service on board was good and I enjoyed the Transavia's onboard magazine. I volunteered at a children's English summer camp while there. It was a great experience. For the three weeks I spent in Palermo in July it only rained once. I took the children kayaking on the sea and the water was so warm. I also enjoyed going snorkelling while in Palermo. I also bought a ticket and went on an excursion to Museo Archeologico Regionale which had some fascinating exhibits. On my flight back home from Palermo I bought some duty-free perfume on board, which I intend to give to my girlfriend.
Svetlana from Russia
My name is Svetlana and I am from Moscow. I booked tickets to Palermo to escape gloomy autumn weather in my home city. Aeroflot emailed me my flight ticket confirmation. I made sure to add airport lounge access to my ticket. On board I enjoyed the in-flight entertainment of blockbuster movies. While in Palermo my husband and I did a lot of sightseeing of beautiful, old churches. When often went to Palermo's biggest market La Vucciria which is full of food stalls selling fresh produce. We also visited the vineyard just outside of Palermo. A ticket to the vineyard included a guided tour and wine sampling.
Hans from Germany
Hi, I'm Hans from Frankfurt. I just returned from a week long holiday in Palermo. I wasn't sure where to go on holiday, so I opted for the Lufthansa Surprise ticket. The way this ticket works is you select a travel topic and how long you would like to go for and then Lufthansa selects your destination for you and you get your ticket. My mystery ticket turned out to be to Palermo. I haven't been to Sicily before, so this was very exciting for me. The flight to Palermo was good and the staff on board professional. The snack served was tasty and I even managed to watch an episode of my favourite TV show on my tablet via the Lufthansa app. Thanks to my Lufthansa Surprise ticket I had a real adventure.
