Port of Palermo

Port of Palermo (Italian: Porto di Palermo) is a port serving Palermo, Sicily, Italy. The port of Palermo is one of the major ports for passenger traffic in the Mediterranean. According to author Patrizia Fabbri the port has been "a constant driving force not only for the island's economy, but in the history of the city of Palermo".[1] It stretches for a few kilometers away from Francesco Crispi, near the ancient port of Cala, incorporating areas including Arenella and Acqua Santa. In 2007 6,630,240 tonnes and 2,305,991 passengers passed through the port.
