5 hours Sightseeing tour of Palermo by car
During our city tour we will see Arab-Norman buildings, baroque squares and churches, Spanish aristocratic palaces etc. We start with Palermo's 'First Avenue', the Via Libertà, where you can see the most elegant shops in town. Then we pass by two wonderful edifices in the neoclassical style: the Politeama theatre and the Opera house. Later we will see the enormous Cathedral; the famous 'Quattro Canti'; the city hall with the wonderful marble Pretoria fountain. After our panoramic city tour we will go to the top of the Pellegrino mountain, where we will visit the sanctuary of the city's patron saint: Santa Rosalia. From the top of the mountain we will enjoy a wonderful view of the gulf of Palermo. Afterwards we will visit the former fishing village of Mondello, which became Palermo's picturesque seaside resort at the beginning of the 20th century. There we will not only admire villas in Art Nouveau style, but also taste some delicious gelato.
