Palermo Walking Tour -Palermo can certainly be called “capital” of Sicily,thanks to its prestigious past,signs of which can be seen in its sumptuously magnificent architecture,and thanks to its natural and cultural beauty. It stretches out across the plateau of the Conco D’Oro,hemmed in by the rugged mountains that surround it and washed by the waters of the beautiful gulf that is home to the main port of Sicily. The old Greek name for the city Panormos means “all port”and was widely used,even though Palermo was never a Greek colony.
The atmosphere created by the streets and architectural styles to be seen in the centre of this historic city show the traces of the various historical periods it has passed through and the various peoples that have dominated it.
Exotic,Arab-Norman architecture and a vibrant street market dazzle the senses on this day tour of Palermo.From the Baroque heart of the city the walk takes you through the ancient Albergheria quarter,and on to Palazzo dei Normanni,with its glittering Palatine Chapel.(Contact us if more than 3 passengers)
