Palermo is a city on Sicily.
South towards Agrigento
About 10-12km away from Palermo there is national road S121 or N121. Close to city the road is narrow, so there is no place to stand. Artti had to found more space, and so it is marked on the map. 
The ferry to reach Africa from Palermo costs about €50 for a foot passenger one way.
