palazzo normanni palermo

4 hours 

Meet your guide in the hotel's lobby and proceed to the heart of Palermo 's historical center, Quattro Canti (Four Corners), a famous crossroads with fine examples of 17th century Spanish Baroque architecture and lovely fountains. Stroll to Piazza Pretoria with its beautiful 16th century Florentine fountain and the City Hall, dating to 1463.

Then visit a 12th century Greek Orthodox church, La Martorana, with its intricate Norman mosaics. The Arab-Norman style church, San Cataldo, is distinguished by three small red domes. The city's cathedral or Duomo, a fusion of Gothic, Arabic and Baroque architecture, was once a mosque - there is a verse of the Koran inscribed on one of its columns. Next, take a stroll through the lively Arab market, and end with a tour of the Massimo Theatre (closed Mondays). 

Entry fees and taxi (if necessary) are additional and are to be paid by the client at the site.
