Palermo is a captivating city that contains numerous cultural and historical treasures, including eight UNESCO sites. Opting for this small group tour gives you the opportunity to witness the best attractions while enjoying a scrumptious local break. In this three-hour small group tour, you will witness the most popular points of interest, located in the city center (externally).

You will see the Baroque and Normann-Arab style architecture, including the Praetorian Square, commonly referred to as the Square of Shame by the locals. The enormous marble fountain in this square is breathtaking; however, it is also the reason behind the square's name due to the nudity of its statues. The Praetorian Palace is also situated in this square, which houses the Town Hall - you might even catch a glimpse of the mayor of Palermo. This awe-inspiring building was constructed in the 14th century and renovated during the 19th century. Your cultural and historical experience will be enhanced by visiting the Royal Palace, presently home to the Regional Parliament of Sicily, also known as Palazzo dei Normanni.

Following the Norman conquest of Sicily in 1072, the palace became the primary residence of the kings. King Roger II made a significant addition to the palace in 1132, adding the Palatine Chapel, which is adorned with one-of-a-kind golden mosaics. When touring Palermo, it is essential to acknowledge the religious significance of the area. As such, our itinerary will include visits to the Martorana Church, renowned worldwide for its magnificence and grandeur. An Arabic traveler who visited the Martorana in 1184 referred to the Christian church as "the most beautiful monument in the world," encapsulating its beauty perfectly.

Another must-see destination includes a tour inside the Cathedral of Palermo, a testament to the stratification of styles, from Muslim to Norman to the Christian reconversion. If you're concerned about getting hungry while exploring the city, fear not, as our small group will also make a substantial stop for a delicious Sicilian cannolo. The inclusions for this tour comprise a licensed English-speaking guide, a walking tour, a view of the city's main monuments, entrance to the Cathedral, and a typical Sicilian cannolo.
