What to Expect
Explore Palermo’s less conventional side on a 5-hour scenic sightseeing tour of the Sicilian capital’s alternative sights.

Departing from your hotel, visit the Cappuccini Catacombs and see the extraordinary mummy of Rosalia Lombardo, a young girl who was embalmed and preserved by a famous doctor called Alfredo Salafia using mysterious techniques.

Next, drive up into the mountain of Montepellegrino for some of the best panoramic views of the city below. Be seduced by a jumble of tiny streets and romantically crumbling Baroque buildings. Discover the cave where the bones of Santa Rosalia, patron saint of Palermo, were found following an apparition during the plague.

Descend the mountain on the other side and drive to Mondello, an enchanting fishing village and popular Palermo beach retreat. Here, you will have the chance to try a sweet cannolo, or a refreshing granita.
