Description of Palermo city tour:
Palermo offers plenty of possibilities and beautiful places to visit, starting from the Arab-Norman monuments (Unesco World Heritage) to the street markets, the baroque churches and the public gardens. You will never forget the thousands of magic corners we can experience in this city!
If it is your first time in the city, this is the tour for you. We start from the visit of the Palatine Chapel in the Royal Palace and we go for a walk along the main street Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, visiting the Cathedral. We will wonder the beauty of Piazza Bologni and, if you want, we will have a coffee stop there.
After this, we'll walk to a magnificent baroque square: the Quattro Canti. We are now really in the earth of the old town, with a big concentration of arts and history in a very small area. Around the corner we'll discover the Pretoria Fountain, in front of the City Hall, and just in a few steps we will be in the Piazza Bellini, where we find three churches: Santa Maria dell'Ammiraglio (also known as "Martorana"), San Cataldo and the baroque Santa Caterina.
We can arrange and modify the tour according to your interests and how much you would like to walk. We can skip something or add something more, like the street food market Capo, the area of Piazza Marina or the area of the biggest opera house in Italy: the Massimo Theater. (Up to 8 hours).
