Istanbul

This is the only city on the planet located simultaneously on 2 continents – in Europe and Asia. Washed by the waters of the Bosphorus and the Sea of ​​Marmara, Istanbul is a major port.

Palermo

Palermo is the capital of Sicily, spread out at the foot of Mount San Pelegrino, and the largest port on the northwest coast. The city is often called an open-air museum that preserves the treasures of the Roman and Greek empires, as well as the heritage of the original Normans and Arabs.

Tourists either forever fall in love with this southern chaos with the smell of salty sea and oranges, or never come back here again.

Palermo is a city of palaces, churches and monasteries. What sins the locals wanted to repent by building so many houses of God, they know only. Continue reading
