Palermo & Surroundings private tour by car

We start with a small sightseeing-tour arround the old town until we reach the Cappucini Monastary. There in the catacombs, you will find the most beautiful mummy in the world. Just be quiet, she is usually sleeping.
Then we drive up the mountain to Monreale, the Royal Mountain. You will be amazed to explore the most beautiful church in the world. There we will also visit the spectacular cloister of the 12th century and you can enjoy the fantastic overview over the Golden Shell of Palermo.
Then you will experience our countryside. After driving between the blue sea and the mountains, you will reach the gorgeous medieval town of Cefalú. After lunchtime, we will visit the Norman cathedral, stroll through the town enjoying the narrow streets, old picturesque houses, and the beautiful seaside. After all that beauty, I will show you an ancient manual washing maschine and you can buy some "sicilian Manna" Then it is time to drive back to Palermo and experience beautiful sights once again under the setting sun.

A Recent Review of this tour

We so enjoyed our half day with Claudia on the tuk tuk tour through Palermo, our group of 9 booked her again for the full day trip to Monreale, the Catacombs and Cefalu. The mini bus was terrific, Vito the driver excellent and once again Claudia was outstanding. She knows her stuff, is entertaining and is great company. She fit in very well with our group, engaged well with the children and was flexible with our requests and needs. Her lunch suggestion and booking was excellent. Thank you Claudia!
