Meetup with the guide at the Teatro Massimo to admire the imposing structure of the largest Opera House in Italy. Within walking distance you will enter the heart of the historical “U Capu” Market where history, tradition and street food mingle with the voices and faces of the people of Palermo. There is hidden a baroque jewel just restored, the church of the Immaculate Conception. Through alleys and ancient buildings you will reach the Norman cathedral where there are the remains of Frederick II of Swabia and the silver “Vara” of Santa Rosalia. Between the gardens of the Villa Bonanno and the ancient Roman ruins of Paleopolis you will be at the Royal Palace or the Normans that preserves 3000 years of our history and the splendid mosaics of the Palatine Chapel in which Arabs, Byzantines and Normans shared knowledge, esoteric secrets, life and traditions in great state of tolerance. Along the ancient fortifications you will photograph San Giovanni degli Eremiti, an evocative Arab-Norman architecture with its particular domes. Discovering the Middle Ages, Spanish facades and courtyards of the historic residences you will walk along the “Cassaro” to conclude the tour to Quattro Canti or the Teatro del Sole, an elegant baroque building.
