Palermo: Mondello Private Tour

2. Palermo: Mondello Private Tour

Take a private guided tour of Mondello and explore its beautiful beaches, resplendent buildings, and more. Learn about the charming borough of Palermo as you discover its most iconic spots. Start the tour from the beautiful Liberty-style building, the bathhouse known as Charleston, inaugurated in 1913.  This iconic building is one of the most beautiful Art Nouveau works in Europe. It often hosts receptions, galas, and other events, likely due to its beautiful terraces and breathtaking views.  The tour continues along the promenade with a splendid view of one of the most famous beaches in Sicily, with elegant bathing establishments, a clear sea, and many favorite nightlife spots. On the beaches, admire the Art Nouveau style, pastel-colored wooden cabins known as huts. The colonies of posidonia make this stretch of sea ideal for snorkeling and diving.  Along the way, discover the Tonnara tower used in the past as a watchtower to protect the fishermen's village and to defend from pirate attacks. The guided tour continues to the small port of Mondello, once used by local fishermen, now a tourist port where you can still admire the small historic boats and take postcard-style pics. The guided tour ends in the main square of the city with a fountain of the Little Mermaid in the center. From here, visit the quay overlooking the sea and enjoy a unique panorama with Mount Pellegrino and the Mediterranean Sea.

A wonderful visit with an exceptional guide

Patrizia was attentive to our wishes and our needs: we did not want the experience <Street food> , she offered us a visit from the point of view of Mount San Pellegrino ... it&#39;s really a private and personalized tour
