Description

Together with your tour guide, you will follow the best itinerary to discover the Unesco sites of the city of Palermo. This city has so much to offer in one enjoyable bike tour! The guide will offer you an essential historical overview of Palermo, which, with its long history, has a remarkable and unique artistic and architectural heritage. During this bike ride you will have the chance to admire the stratification of styles of Palermo architecture and culture. The Arabic, Norman, and Byzantine empires all contribute to the fascinating history of Palermo. You will be impressed by the symbol of the city, the famous cathedral of Palermo, which is one of the oldest churches in the world. You will have the opportunity to see the many architectural features of the Martorana Church, which is heavily influenced by both the Arabs and Normans. Your guide will also bring you to pass by the Palazzo dei Normanni which houses the beautiful Palatine Chapel with several Byzantine mosaics. After a long bike ride, it is time for you to rest, breathe some fresh air and taste a great Sicilian granita in a typical shop. If you think that granita is just a refreshing crushed ice flavoured with fruit to cool off in the relentless sun, you have never tried the Sicilian version! This semi-frozen dessert is made of sugar and water before the flavourings are added. A perfect way to appreciate even more the many tales told about Sicily's capital.
