Meet your English speaking guide to enjoy a guided exploration of the city. Starting from Teatro Massimo (Palermo’s Opera House), walk along via Maqueda and Corso Vittorio Emanuele, the main pedestrian streets of the historical centre. Admire “I Quattro Canti”, officially known as Piazza Vigliena, the enormous renaissance fountain of Piazza Pretoria, also known as Square of Shame,  the refined Cathedral, dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. Crossing Villa Bonanno reach the Royal Palace and visit the wonderful Palatine Chapel, the royal chapel of the Norman kings of The Kingdom of Sicily, considered by Guy de Maupassant ““the most surprising religious jewel of human thought created by an artist.” The chapel is adorned with extraordinary Norman-Byzantine mosaics and it is a great symbol of multi-cultural cooperation and coexistence, combining the work of muslim and catholic craftsmen, resulting in Byzantine mosaics, declined according to Islamic ornamental models… adorning a catholic church. Visit one of the local historical street markets and walk following the strong smell of spices and fried food. Consider to have lunch/tasting in one of our favorite “Focacceria” or “Trattoria”.  Proceed to Monreale to admire the majestic Dome, one of the most magnificent testimonies of the Norman conquest of Sicily: the Cathedral, founded in the 12th century by the Norman king William II, features 6.340 square meters of polychrome and gold mosaics representing bibles stories, covering walls and ceiling. Back to Palermo in the afternoon.
