Partanna is a small neibourhood in Mondello and it's where all locals get their shopping off the many stores along road 'via carbone'. Everything you could possibly need is concentrated in this street. Fruit &veg shops, bakeries, ice-cream bar, a couple of good restaurants, ATM machine, post office, pharmacy and tobacco shops and the list goes on:) Our favourite place is Mini Market a high-quality delicatessen that has the best selection of cheeses and cold meats in town. Must try!
