Palermo and Cefalù Tour will show you the richness of the Gothic-Arab era in Sicily.
First Stop of the Palermo and Cefalù Tour will be Palermo.
Palermo is not only Sicily’s Capital city, but maybe the most chaotic, vibrant and energetic place in Europe. Originally founded by the Phoenicians in the 8th century b.C., Palermo has been Sicilian Capital since the Arab domination in 9th century. Arabs, Norman, French, Spanish. All these different nominations have left their print on the city. Today Palermo is a unique mix of styles, architecture and art. And these combination of styles has earned the city to be insert into the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
You will walk through its streets, wholly covered with sights, scents and flavors. Its moroccan-style Market “A’ Vucciria” with all the possible products at your disposal. With all of the incredible Arab-Norman churches and palaces, the city will leave you breathless.
Second stop of Palermo and Cefalù Tour will be Cefalù
In this lovely fishing village we will soothe our senses. Mostly famous for its marvellous Norman cathedral, it is quite satisfying to wander throught the narrow streets sided by nice little boutiques.
Here in Cefalù we will have a break. You will be offered a typical Sicilian snack with “Tavola Calda” from Catania water and Etna Red Wine.
The return in Catania is expected at around 7pm.
