Discover the highlights of Palermo in this half day private walking tour


Discover the beauty of Palermo! I will take you on an amazing walk from Teatro Massimo through the heart of the historical market "Capo". Immerse yourself in the Sicilian traditions, surrounded by colors and food of the typical cuisine. The walk continues to the Church of the Immaculate Conception, a true jewel of the Baroque Period. We'll pass through alleys, palaces and talk about ancient legends, superstitions and traditions. We'll visit the Norman Cathedral where, if you want, you can climb on the roofs. Passing by "Cassaro", the oldest street of Palermo, we ll discover the Four Corners (Quattro Canti), also known as "Teatro del Sole" (theatre of the sun), an elegant baroque crossroad, and we will visit the medieval churches of Martorana and San Cataldo. Please note the Dress Code recommended to enter any church. This Tour can be customized to meet your needs.
