This motor coach tour features the best of Palermo’s sights at a relaxed pace. Begin with a drive to the central part of town. Highlights you will see include the Norman Palace, which began life in the Saracen period, but was altered by the Norman kings. See the magnificent cathedral, built in the 12th century by an archbishop, and transformed into a mosque after the Muslim era. Housing six royal tombs, the basilica was restored to the hands of Christianity by the Normans. The remains of Palermo’s protector, St Rosalia, are stored in the chapel, in an urn of pure silver. Watch for the notable landmarks of the Massimo Theatre and the Felice Gate, and the thoroughfare of Corso Vittorio Emanuele. Marina Square is a favorite gathering spot amid the Garibaldi Gardens. Before your arrival at the pier you will enjoy a short sightseeing tour of Mondello.
