Palermo is Sicily’s scintillating capital and its center for tourism, culture, and economics. One of the top tourist destinations in both Italy and Europe, Palermo is also one of the largest cities in the Mediterranean, meaning there's a wealth of quality sightseeing opportunities in the 'Golden Basin' for you to discover.
Over 2,700 years old, Palermo has been ruled in its rich history by the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, and Normans, with each era leaving its mark on the city. The Port of Palermo is the main port of Sicily along with Messina, making the city a popular docking location for cruise ships bearing passengers delighted to discover this jewel of the Mediterranean.
The sight of the midday sun glinting along Lungomare and warming the terracotta tiles of Old Town is almost too exquisite to describe. Take a guided bicycle tour that brings you Palermo in all its picture-perfect magnificence, shares its scrumptious street food, clinks a pint of craft beer with you, leads you through the legacy of the Mafia, or coaxes you into the catacombs. Each guided tour comes with the added benefit of bike rental.
See for yourself how the shadows of the palm trees sway against the walls of the Royal Palace, how the crystalline waters erupt from the fountain of Piazza Pretoria, and how the dome of Palermo Cathedral pierces the brilliant blue of the skies.
Your perfect Palermo day tour awaits!
