Palermo is a unique mixture of artistic remains. In its three millennia of history it has been conquered by whatever population happened to cross the Mediterranean. Your art history guide will navigate you through the old town to follow their traces, visiting the Arab-Norman Cathedral, the Church of San Cataldo, the Renaissance fountain in Piazza Pretoria and the wonderful Monreale Cathedral at a short distance from Palermo.
Palermo’s food markets are a feast for the senses and represent a true slice of Sicilian life. You will walk through the spider’s web of the alleys of the oldest food market of the city and sample the Sicilian street food such as panelle (fried chickpea rectangles) and crocché (fried ovals of mashed potato).
