Hospitable Palermo will greet you with the beautiful Foro Italico promenade and invite you to relax in the luxurious Flora Garden. An excursion in English will allow you to comprehend the proud character of this Sicilian city that has taken its place among the cultural centers of Europe.
With a guide, you will appreciate the main architectural treasures of Palermo:
- Octagonal Piazza Villena;
- Cathedral of Saint Rosalia with the royal tomb;
- Palatine Chapel - the chapel of the Sicilian rulers covered with gold mosaic from top to bottom.
1001guide advises ending the sightseeing excursion with a visit to the unique underground cemetery nicknamed "the Catacombs of the Capuchins" that gave the last shelter to 8,000 Palermitans. For a break from the city bustle, a picturesque oasis - the volcanic island of Ustica - is a perfect place.
