A kid-friendly itinerary ending with a visit to the Sicilian Puppet Theater
The highlight of this tour is a visit to the Sicilian Puppet Theater featuring hand-made wooden marionettes.
The Opera dei Pupi, was proclaimed in 2001 in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists. Only a few troupes are left that maintain the true tradition and the ability to build the marionettes complete with their clothing, armor, and weapons. After the show, everyone can touch and even operate the puppets.
Since the shows are generally in the late afternoon, we will start at the Piazza Marina. There I will show you a special sight not made by man. It will be a surprise for young and grownup kids. Walking through the narrow streets, we will visit the Admiral's Church with its unique mosaics. We will see many marble animals at the Senate's Square. Passing the Spanish center, I will guide you through our impressive 12th-century cathedral. Finally, we will attend the Operá dei Pupi. During our tour, you will have the opportunity to experience how we eat the best ice cream. The tour lasts 3, 5 hours
