In a nutshell

Palermo is determined to seduce you, with eclectic monuments, Baroque atmospheres and its Mediterranean charm. But it will also tempt your taste buds with an intensely flavorful gastronomy. The big finale will take you up high, all the way up to Mount Pellegrino, for a panoramic view of the entire gulf and a visit to the place of devotion dearest to the people of Palermo.



Main stops
  • Panoramic view of Via Libertà, the Politeama Theater, the Massimo Theater
  • Church of Saint Mary of the Admiral or Martorana, Piazza Pretoria Quattro Canti, Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, the Cathedral of Palermo
  • Typical lunch
  • Monte Pellegrino and the Sanctuary of Santa Rosalia


The programme
  • The city of Palermo wins you over starting right from the bus, as you ride in front of the Politeama Theater, a location that in the past held boxing matches, circus performances and a cinematograph, and the Massimo Theater, by name and by nature the most important.
  • Dive in the streets of the city center and allow yourself to be dazzled by the gold of the Bizantine mosaics in the Church of the Martorana, discover why the people of Palermo call Piazza Pretoria the “square of Shame” and take a 360° picture of the Quattro Canti, symbolic monument in Baroque style.
  • Lungo “u Cassaru”, officially Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, let yourself be amazed by the cathedral, that long ago was also a mosque and a fortress.
  • Palermo seduces you, and also through the taste buds: you will not go away without tasting sfinciuneddu, a leavened focaccia with tomato, sarde alla beccafico (sardines prepared with bread crumbs, raisins and pine nuts) and the cannolicchio (razor clams).
  • Then off to the mountains, to discover why Goethe defined Mount Pellegrino “the most beautiful promontory in the world”. Here there is a unique view, that goes from the Isola delle Femmine to Cefalù, and the Sanctuary of Santa Rosalia, the “santuzza”, as the people of Palermo affectionately call their patron saint.
