Balestrate (near Palermo)-- any surprises?

Manybears | Mar 26, 2010 07:08 AM

Hi there. I have the fortune of visiting Sicily in June for a few weeks and am staying in Balestrate, a small town between Palermo and Castellamare del Golfo on the coast. I will not have a car.

I understand that Balestrate is fairly touristy and has a couple of bars/pizza shops and at least one supermarket, but I am wondering if I will find any good "homey" places to eat or shop for food. I am arriving in Palermo and hope to get some basic supplies there first, and I will definitely return at least once for oil, wine, and other treats, but am hoping to have some good local options as well, especially for produce. I am also considering a taxi into Alcamo if Balestrate really has nothing.

Has anyone been?
