The Royal Palace awaits afterward, where you can visit a Jewel of Arab Norman art and also the most visited monument in Sicily: the Palatine Chapel. Throughout the tour, you will see old Arab quarters hidden among the narrow lanes of the inner city, including the community of St. Clare.

Excellent tour with an amazing tour guide!

Since we were a large group on a business trip, local guide was very flexible and helpful with the preparations. Also during the tour they were always trying to accommodate our on-site wishes and made our trip really fantastic! I would highly recommend this tour as you will hear a lot of funny stories and have an amazing experience in Palermo!

A wonderful visit with an exceptional guide

Patrizia was attentive to our wishes and our needs: we did not want the experience <Street food> , she offered us a visit from the point of view of Mount San Pellegrino ... it&#39;s really a private and personalized tour

The booking went easy, we met our competent and friendly guide Noemi in front of Teatro Massimo. She gave us Palermo in a nutshell, with plenty of details concerning history, culture and local life. A great afternoon!

The explanations, the answer to our questions (from children and adults), the language skills and the differentiated expression were a highlight of our stay in Palermo. Highly recommended.

Very good visit Our guide was fantastic She was very knowledgeable on history and very passionate A good experience
