Description

Palermo, for its urban structure of Arabic influence, with narrow streets and lanes, is very suited to be visited just walking. 

We'll start from Piazza Politeama (Politeama Square) but we can change our schedule and meeting point according to your personal requests. We'll pass through the old arabian markets Capo and Vucciria, to see where local people buy very fresh fish, vegetables and fruits, but also where you will realize that monuments and so precious Churches are there that you would never expect!

We'll stop in Piazza G. Verdi where stands, in all its majesty, the largest theatre of Europe: the Theatre Massimo (exterior only). We'll enter inside the capo Market, active every day and plenty of fresh foods and fish, but also rich of hisory and several beautiful Churches.

After that, you will visit the Cathedral, full of signs of our history because of the many differents styles and witnesses on the facade. From there, if you request it in advance when you book for the tour, we can go on to visit the Norman Palace and the Palatine Chapel inside it, jewel of the highest arab-norman art in Sicily.

We'll then arrive at Vigliena square commonly known as Four Canti or Octagon or Theatre of the Sun which cuts exactly into four parts Palermo’s map.

We'll stop in Piazza Bellini where you will discover how several different monuments and churches from different ages can survive in the same time and facing each others: La Martorana, San Cataldo, Santa Caterina with Cloister, XI, XII and XVI cent.
In Piazza Pretoria we will enter in the Palazzo of the Mayor, rich of beauty and history, unique example in the world of a pubblic palazzo with a Chapel inside.

We'll pass after the Church along Via Vittorio Emanuele: Flea Market, Ss Salvatore, San Matteo, San joseph of Theatins, piazza Bologni with hansome palazzos: Palazzo Alliata, Chiaramonte, Riso and the Statue of king Charles V.

Finally we'll cross the Corso Vittorio Emanuele, overcome the Teatro Biondo (Biondo Theatre) and descend through one of the most characteristic steps of Palermo, Discesa Caracciolo (Caracciolo descent), to arrive in the heart of the historic market Vucciria and so near our location.

At lunch time we arrive at our beautiful home where you will be our special guests. There you will enjoy our rich sicilian typical lunch of 5 dishes, prepared only for you by our Chef Donna Patricia: panelle, sfincione, pasta al forno, caponata, always with a good Sicilian wine or other beverage of your choice.

We will conclude our lunch with zibibbo wine, sicilian almond biscuits, the best cassatelle of ricotta cheese, and coffee mocha espresso.
