Palermo - Provincial Palermo
The beauty of Palermo washes down Via Maqueda and Quattro Canti. The elegant Norman Palace borders the oldest neighborhood of the city. The vivacious Ballaò Market fills with locals searching for fresh produce, and knowledgeable butchers set on a wide avenue lined by antique buildings. The azure water of the harbor brushes against a cobblestone promenade. Ships wade in the water, their masts waving against the motionless horizon. One of our tour companies in Italy will arrange for a private transfer to meet you at the Falcone-Borsellino Airport and escort you to your hotel located in the heart of the ancient city.
The aroma of orange trees brightens the already brilliant afternoon. Palm trees cast refreshing shade over the streets. The creamy hue of the cathedral exterior enhances the eastern wing’s Norma character. The south façade was constructed in the 15th century with a Gothic-Catalan portico opening the church to the masses. A single column, dating back to the city’s Moorish rule, has an Arabic inscription in the sweeping decorative style of calligraphy. The city is rambunctious, but welcoming, filled with gregarious locals and a collection of cultures from around the Mediterranean. In the evening, your guide meets you in the hotel lobby to introduce you to the sparkling lights of Palermo by night.
