Private Palermo walking tour: the triumph of Spanish Baroque-half day tour


This tour is based on the splendid Baroque architecture boasted by the Palermitan aristocracy in the 17th - 18th Century.
In the morning we will first see the Four Corners Square or "Quattro Canti", the most famous Spanish crossroads from the 16th Century. In the same area, stands Saint Joseph Church, one of the biggest and fully decorated monuments from the 17th Century . Then we will visit the Jesuits Church or Casa Professa, totally covered with wonderful marble inlays and stucco work.
We will finish our walking tour with Palazzo Mirto, once owned by the Prince of Mirto, that still features various beautiful collections that belonged to the family, frescoed ceilings and tapistries.

A Recent Review of this tour

An excellent 4 hour tour. We drove through Palermo, which is a small yet very sophisticated and chic city; passed by the great big, (huge) beautiful opera house and on to a very pleasant surprise, but as planned, the Cathedral Monreale. Josie knows this place in GREAT DETAIL. It is truly spectacular; one of the great wonders of the world, and soon to be considered a World Heritage Site. Nothing compares to this cathedral's interior, and we had an excellent guide to boot!
