Palermo: Markets and Monuments City Center Walking Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 3 hours
There were two routs and they were both very short, only 1 hour each. But, they were very informative and you see the main sights from the bus. Only problem was to find the initial bus stop. This mostly due to road construction. But, CitySightseeing Parlermo was not providing additional info on how the find the bus due to construction. Also the woman at the office was not helpful.
Our Guide, Fabricio, is himself an interesting Palermian. He did an excellent tour, based on his extensive knowledge of history and living in his natal city with his eyes open. We were treated with info. on history of the city, but also of the current street food and other culinary specialties of esp. Palermo and Sicily in general.
This is the perfect combination of history and food! We especially loved walking through the market and learning about the different types of vegetables. We never would have known about the astrological "clock" on the floor of the cathedral if we had not been with Fabrizio - so interesting!!
The tour is just great! A nice mix of history and (local) cuisine. I wouldn't but recommend it. Fabrizio is a very nice guy, with fun and interesting stories about the food you are just eating. Very cool way indeed to get to know some of the many fascinating facets of Palermo.
lovely morning walk through the local food market and along beautiful historic streets of Palermo. Fabrizio is great guide, professional and very funny. I really enjoyed it. Highly recommended.
