A walk in a park and then arrivederci Palermo
Designed in 1851 by Giovani Battista Filippo Basile, the Giardino Inglese also features an artificial lake with a statue of Rutelli, a botanical garden of considerable interest, statues, busts and monuments in memory of famous people - such as the one dedicated to Giuseppe Garibaldi.
After enjoying the gardens we once again window-shopped our way along via della Liberta. The fashionable clothes were stunning, but for us it was a trip to the airport. One good thing about Italian airports is that the food is usually good and it was. We bought a bag of pistachio marzipan brutta ma bionni (cookies) that helped to sustain us as our flight was an hour and a half late in leaving Palermo. Other than the delays it was a very good trip.
