There is a story behind every area which is also within the area: you feel it as you walk through its streets laid with cobbles centuries earlier, at the sight of a church towering above the town squares, among the people bustling along the narrow streets.
It is the story of an entire community, recounted by the art that adorns its every corner and the culture that every tradition whispers to anyone who is ready to listen.
Explore the area, immerse yourself in the art and history.
Explore the city of Palermo, with its impressive Arab-Norman cathedral, the Norman Palace, seat of the Sicilian Parliament, and the famous Palatine Chapel inside it dating back to 1130.
Stroll along the ancient Corso Vittorio Emanuele and admire the superb façades of the grand buildings and churches built during the Baroque period.
Go to the Fontana Pretoria and visit the Church of St. Mary of the Admiral (“La Martorana”) and the Church of St Catherine of Alexandria, with its cloister, a splendid example of Baroque art.
Finish up with a small tasting session and free time to visit the city’s back streets.
