Full description

Discover Palermo on a guided walking tour of this charming city, including a cannolo tasting. See iconic sights including the U Capu historical market, the Norman Cathedral, and the ancient fortifications of the city. Marvel at the varied architectural styles around you: baroque, Spanish facades and courtyards, and more.

Meet us at h 9AM at Piazza Verdi at the foot of Teatro Massimo staircase to admire the imposing structure of the largest opera house in Italy. A few steps you will enter the heart of the historical market "U Capu" where history, tradition and street food mix with the voices and faces of the people of Palermo. There is a newly restored baroque jewel, the church of the Immaculate Conception. Through alleys and ancient buildings you are at the Norman cathedral where the remains of Frederick II of Swabia and the silver "Vara" of Santa Rosalia are located. Between the gardens of Villa Bonanno and the ancient Roman ruins of the Paleopoli you will be at the Royal or Norman Palace which houses 3000 years of our history and the splendid mosaics of the Palatine chapel where Arabs, Byzantines and Normans shared knowledge, esoteric secrets, life and customs in great tolerance. Skirting the ancient fortifications you will photograph San Giovanni degli Eremiti, an evocative Arab-Norman architecture with its particular domes. Discovering medieval quarters, Spanish facades and courtyards of historic houses, you will walk through the "Cassaro" to end your tour at the Quattro Canti or Teatro del Sole, an elegant baroque structure.

We really liked the tour! The guide Valeria gave us a lot of interesting information and even modified the tour a little since we had already seen a lot of the city before. A unique experience!
