Walk through the most important streets of Palermo and taste its delicacies

Continuing this guided tour of Palermo, you'll reach Piazza Bellini, home to the splendid Martorana and San Cataldo churches, architectural gems that you will  admire from the outside. Then, diving into Piazza Pretoria's lively ambiance will be amazing, renowned for its "Shame Square" fountain due to statues' nudity. Our journey proceeds to Quattro Canti, Palermo's adorned symbolic intersection, and just before we continue our adventure toward the church of Santa Caterina, you will have the opportunity to make a sweet stop to sample one of the Sicilian delicacies that appeals anyone who sets foot on the island: you can choose between a super fresh granita, or a mouth-watering cannolo
