What you'll do

Our tour starts exactly from Massimo Theatre, the biggest Opera House in Italy – in belle epoque style. We will cross the Capo market – hugging the sparkling colours and smells . Along the little lanes of the city centre you will visit a small boutique of Sicilian Chariots, hand crafted by a local artist. Not far you will be surprised to find the Cathedral, the icon of an Arab-Normand culture that for centuries have been rooted in Palermo. The tour continues on via Vittorio Emanuele to the Quattro Canti, the most beautiful injunction and heart of the city. Just around the corner there is Piazza Pretoria, with epic Tuscan fountain. Exit the square form its southeast corner to reach Piazza Bellini and its cross-cultural architecture mash-up. It’s here that you’ll find 12th-century La Martorana and San Cataldo Church. Walking through the main road you will get to Piazza Sant’Anna, where the majestic baroque style chiesa of St. Anne is placed – the last stop will be at San Francesco square, a lovely picture-perfect piazza.

Roberta was a fantastic, friendly and welcoming guide. I would not have learned so much about Palermo if I hadn’t done this tour. I would highly recommend this tour and wish Roberta all the very best for the future. A very lovely guide.

We had a tour with Roberta, and she was FANTASTIC! She was a very sweet and knowledgable guide. There were only two of us that morning, my boyfriend and I. So the tour was very personal. Roberta was 100% okay with making a few changes here and there due to it only being us two. When we wanted to run inside a church to see what it looked like she came along and knew the history all about it even though it was technically on the tour which was very impressive. The tour started through the markets for us which was really fun learning all about the food in palermo, then took us through the town. Highly recommend!
