Trip to Palermo

The bus was very clean and comfortable. Left on time....The long journey time. I didn't realise it was so long but that's my fault.

Easy access to the bus station....A bit of explanation about the size of bags allowed to carry with and that of baggage to put inside the storage space is better to be made.
