Saint John of the Hermits and Palatina Chapel


The tour unfolds in the part of the city where we find the architercural jewels of Palermo, some of which date back to the 12th century.
We will visit, in the Royal Palace, the Palatine Chapel, which is decorated with golden Mosaics.
The second part of the tour includes the Church of Saint John of the Hermits, wich is considered one of the most beautiful site of Palermo.
The last part of the tour consists of a visit to the Cathedral which is another splendid example of Arabic-Norman architecture.

This tour is designed for those who do not want to walk much. In fact, the monuments that I propose are located in the same district.

A Recent Review of this tour

Nous avons fait moi même et ma famille une excellente visite pédestre avec Iolanda ,qui nous a permis de visiter les monuments prévus avec commentaires bien sûr, mais qui nous a aussi donné beaucoup d'informations sur l'histoire, la vie sociale et le mode de pensée des Palermitains au fur et à mesure des siècles , tout ceci dans un très bon français; nous avons eu également l'occasion de cheminer à travers quelques lieux insolites relevant de la petite Histoire...A recommander
