You will be shown the highlights of the city passing through the Baroque Quattro Canti, admiring the beauties of the Fountain of Shame. The walking tour continues with the honey-coloured Palermo Cathedral and the visit a local market where we you can sample some traditional Sicilian street food.
Due to the ninth-century Saracen rule of the island, Sicily has a long tradition of open-air street markets, which bear a striking similarity to Arab souks. Your wonderful day will end at the Oratory of S. Lorenzo, used as a place of assembly and worship, but also home to an art jewel conceived by one of the finest artists of the Baroque age in Sicily.
