Relaxing walking tour of historical Palermo and Private Lunch

I will lead you to discover Palermo, the history and the culture through the monuments and Churches and Markets.
The best way to visit our town is walking, never by car. The historical center is very rich of sites worthy to be visited but it is also very concentrated, so just walking is the best way to do a visit of Palermo.
And this also to go inside the narrow streets and till the markets.

Because the tour is private you will be never be rushed or in a big crowd, I will be your personal guide and you will be ''owner of your time'' also to decide if to stop for a coffee or whatever.

After the tour, I will lead to meet your cook, your personal cook, so not for any other people, who will prepare for you a typical Sicilian meal, served in her charming home, inside an historical building of XVII century.
The Lunch is based on seasonal food and it is possible to ask for vegetarian, gluten free or vegan.


We walk to the market Capo and visit a terrific baroque Church located inside the market, we proceed to the Cathedral, then to the Market Ballaro, and other church inside the market. We proceed to via Vitt. Emanuele to arrive at the Four Corners and Piazza Pretoria, we visit palazzo Pretorio, San Cataldo and La Martorana Church.
Then Piazza San Domenico and the Church and Vucciria Market.

At this point you will meet your cook and will go together to the location for the Typical private lunch with Sicilian wines. You will feel at home, comfortable and quiet in a very nice and friendly dimension. Not typically ''touristy'', but a taste of real local life.
