Half day tour


We will enjoy in a few hours some special sights of Palermo. We will start with the famous Capuchin Catacombs, where are still exhibited almost 8000 mummified bodies, in particular all people that in the past wanted to be embalmed by friars. We will reach the Sanctuary of Saint Rosalia situated in the beautiful natural cave where the Patron Saint of Palermo lived as a hermit in the 12th Century A. D. The cave is on top of Mount Pellegrino, about 1200 feet above the sea level. You will enjoy a spectacular view of Palermo from up above. We will end up in Mondello, the beautiful summer resort of Palermo, with its long sandy beach, nice cafés, typical trattorias and ice cream places
