Let Palermo charm you with its scintillating mix of cultures and the history behind it, preserved in buildings, monuments and distinctive neighborhoods. Our Segway tour shows you so much while bringing you closer than you could get on larger bus tours.
What to Expect
Palermo's metropolitan attractions and incredibly diverse history are yours to discover as we guide you through the streets on your personal Segway.
Early in the tour we pass the Teatro Massimo, Italy's largest opera house. Then you step back to the time of the Saracens as we cross the Arab-flavored Capo Market toward the cathedral, built in the 1100s but renovated in various styles through the centuries since.
Further on, the Norman Palace recalls the time after the Saracens. It and the Bishop's Palace overlook Piazza della Vittoria and Villa Bonano, where traces of the old Roman city are preserved. Little remains from the time of Greek dominance or from the Phoenicians who founded the city.
Palaces and churches, Town Hall Square with the Pretoria Fountain, Garibaldi Gardens and the fascinating Castello a Mare, or "castle in the sea" -- you will be amazed at all that Palermo has to offer.
