Palermo is the undisputed pearl of Sicily and the points of interest are numerous among which one can quote more particularly:

The Cathedral of the Blessed Virgin Mary Assunta, known more commonly as the Cathedral of Palermo which is the unmissable event of the Catholic worship of the city.


The Palatine Chapel, a basilica with three naves located inside the Palazzo dei Normanni architectural complex

And again I Quattro Canti, La Zisa, the Church of Martorana, the Botanical Garden, the Teatro Massimo catacombs of the Capuchins, and many other monuments that we discover while walking along the streets and alleys of the city.


Palermo, capital of Sicily, beautiful and rich in history and traditions, amazes for its colors and flavors.

You can taste the “Sfincione Palermitano”, as well as the “arancine” or the sandwich with “Panelle”, sold in the streets of the famous markets of the city: Ballarò, Capo, or Vucciria.



Frequently considered the most beautiful religious work of the world, the cathedral of Monreale is one of the best examples of the encounter between technique, art and the human soul. The mosaics are the artistic translation of the Bible and cover an area of about 6,400 square meters
