Discover the splendours of Palermo - half day tour


Palermo's highlights half day shore excursion or private tour:

Under the Arabs and the Normans, Palermo became one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Several monuments reflect the magnificence of two worlds: East and West. We will visit the 12th century Palatine Chapel, built by the Norman King Roger II, all decorated with Byzantine and Islamic-style mosaics. The Church of St. John of the Hermits built just like a red-domed Mosque. The nearby Cathedral was built by the Norman Bishop Walter of the Mill, but every new ruling dynasty that conquered the island added its own unique style.
