Palermo – In the Cool of the Night
The beauty of Palermo shimmers in the Mediterranean Sea and along the cream-colored stone constituting the Norman Palace in the heart of the historical city center. The scent of oranges blossoms from the orchards that encircle the city. Cobblestones pave the streets and alleyways underneath rustling palm trees. You arrive at the Falcone-Borsellino Airport, where your private transfer is waiting to greet you. You find your luxurious hotel situated near the heart of Palermo, surrounded by the lush history, where a multitude of cultures has added their particular charm to the skyline and cuisine for millennia.
After dinner, your guide greets you at your hotel and escorts you through the city streets for an evening tour of Palermo to introduce you properly to the antique city. Consider learning more about your highly rated tour operators for Sicily, and read for yourself how they work carefully to craft this trip to be the most memorable one you will ever go on. At dusk, a small marine layer washes over the streets, providing a cool atmosphere to the often-warm days. The streetlights have a radiant glow against the stone and narrow lanes of the old city. When you reach Vucciria Market, the quiet streets turn raucous, filled with the vibrancy of youth. Locals sit in cafes with tables crowding the walkways. They sip wine and coffee, nibble on Sicilian cannoli filled with ricotta sprinkled with pistachio, and watch what feels like the entire city pass by them.
