Meet us at h 9AM at Piazza Verdi at the foot of Teatro Massimo staircase (Palermo Opera House) to admire the imposing structure of the largest opera house in Italy. A few steps you will enter the heart of the historical open air Capo market where history, tradition and street food mix with the voices and faces of the people of Palermo. There is a newly restored baroque jewel, the Church of the Immaculate Conception.
Through alleys and ancient buildings you are at the Norman Cathedral where the remains of Frederick II of Swabia and the silver "Vara" of Santa Rosalia are located.
Between the gardens of Villa Bonanno and the ancient Roman ruins of the Paleopoli you will be at the Royal Norman Palace which houses 3000 years of our history and the splendid mosaics of the Palatine Chapel where Arabs, Byzantines and Normans shared knowledge, esoteric secrets, life and customs in great tolerance.
Skirting the ancient fortifications you will photograph San Giovanni degli Eremiti, an evocative Arab-Norman architecture with its particular domes.
Discovering medieval quarters, Spanish facades and courtyards of historic houses, you will walk through the "Cassaro" to end your tour at the Four Corners, an elegant baroque structure.
