Palermo Street Stories Walking Tour | Weekend in Italy
With this walk through the Capo and Ballarò neighborhoods, you’ll discover some of the street stories and popular legends that animate the streets and squares of the Sicilian capital. An unusual way to make friends with Palermo, with its beauty and decadence that reflect death and resurrection, at every step.
From dusty artisan workshops to the colorful altars of Santa Rosalia, from populated market streets to the elegant Baroque of the Immaculate Conception Church - you will get to know the soul of Palermo through the hidden corners of the old town and its stories. The easy walk tells you about the Beati Paoli and Count Cagliostro, about Santa Rosalia and the carritteri, and so much more. A break with a delicious glass of Zibibbo wine is included - and your tour is led by our young and passionate guides.
