I was very impressed with this mall, they had many nice stores and friendly people. It was cool to see they had a GameStop, and a store called media world which reminds me of Best Buy. They had a cool train ride for the kids. It was nice seeing a few of the familiar stores, not many Benetton stores left... More

It is a good place for shopping for those who rent a car. For those who don't drive and use a public transport it is quite inconvenient to get

If you are looking for a shopping centre "American style" this is the one that gets the closest to it. It's fun to go around all the boutiques and when you get to the food area you risk to sit and never leave!!

Nice shopping mall with many good brand shops. However please people walking there with dogs. First time see it. It's a bit dirty, expensive, no water in toilet and grocer market... looks like there was no delivery for a while

I live in New York City and do not like mall shopping at all, but this a nicer experience. I guess because Coop was there. You can do everything under one roof. On the downside, it's too American looking...UGH. I love the small shops of Europe.

We spent our holiday in Cefalu, and was hoping to do some real shopping, so we took the train to Palermo and then a taxi to Forum. It costs about 20€ by cab. We should have googled this mall a bit better before going.. We were hoping to spend a LOT of hours shopping, but was finished after about 90... More

The Forum in Palermo has so many stores and also hairdressers, restaurants and an amazing food hall buzzing with celebration of anything Sicilian. The ice-cream stores have so many flavours and the portion sizes are so generous; just like the personalities of the Italian, sorry, Sicilian people. Can't wait to go again soon!

We visited Palermo independently (wheelchair and all) while on a cruise port stop. Started at Monreale, then came back to the Palazzo Normanni and the Cathedral. Walked just about the length of Corso Vittorio Emanuelle, saw the unusual statues at the Quantro Canti and the Pretoria Fountain. We wandered through the Vucciria market, which was mostly a flea market, ended... More
