Palermo

(Departure at 08:00 – Return at 18:00)

Palermo was founded by the Phoenicians between the sixth and seventh centuries BC, and clearly shows the influences of the Arab and Norman hegemony, a style that characterizes its appearance.
Palermo winds along two streets: Corso Vittorio Emanuele and Via Maqueda, at the intersection of these two streets is Piazza Quattro Canti which divides the city into four parts. To the south-west, there is Palazzo dei Normanni or Palazzo Reale with the famous Palatine Chapel. Further south is the Church of San Giovanni degli Eremiti (with red domes), followed in a short distance by the convent with the same name, with attached catacombs.

Moving on, we will reach the Cathedral: a mixed 12th-century building in Sicilian-Norman and Gothic-Catalan style.
