Day 1

Palermo – Arrive in Palermo with a Historical Introductory Tour

The historic city center of Palermo embodies the remarkable heritage of the city that is reflected in the opulent architecture of the Norman Palace and elegant cathedral. The aromas of freshly fried arancini and grilled calamari that is drizzled with lemon lingers above the cobblestone streets, connecting with the vibrant daily La Vucciria market that brims along the lanes around Piazza San Domenico. Your flight will land at Falcone Borsellino Airport, where your private transfer will greet you at customs before escorting you to the comforts of your luxurious hotel at the heart of the captivating city.

You will find the aromas of palm trees and citrus fruits to blend with the subtle scent of the sea breeze when you meet your guide in the lobby for a private introductory tour of the city that will reveal the sophisticated landmarks from the Norman architecture of the Cathedral and the elements of Arab design in the Norman Palace. The 12th-century Capella Palatina will take your breath away when you find the mosaics along the western wall that depict Jesus and the apostles of Peter and Paul. The Arabic-style stalactites decorate the ceiling and blend the remarkable and unique designs that are accentuated by the mystical glint from the gilded embellishments. The aroma of frankincense remains in the nave amid the mesmerizing images of the Bible, which line the central aisle and include scenes from Creation and Noah’s Ark.
