Palermo’s Treasures

By this tour you will discover the finest sites, rich of art and history, that Palermo can offer. Start from the core of the city. Villino Florio, a Liberty Style villa, recently restructured and open to the public again. This villa shows the incredible talent of Ernesto Basile, the architect who also finished to build Teatro Massimo, started by the father Giovan Battista Basile. Teatro Massimo, the second gem of this itinerary, is the biggest Opera House of Palermo. It shows its great golden beauty both outside and inside and a spectacular monumental architecture. Your guide will lead you inside for a tour of the theater. The itinerary continues towards the core of the city: admire the Quattro Canti Square and Piazza Pretoria.

After lunch (at leisure), discover the hidden jewels Palazzo Chiaramonte-Steri and Palazzo Abatellis; Palazzo Chiaramonte-Steri, symbol of the passage from medieval to aristocrat architecture, was the residence of the Sicilian Lord Manfredi III Chiaramonte. Today the palace is a museum where you can admire the famous Renato Guttuso’s Vucciria. The Gothic Palazzo Abatellis is the Gallery of Art for the Sicilian region and it houses the beautiful Virgin Annunciate, by Antonello da Messina and the shocking fresco Triumph of Death.
