Explore Palermo cultural heritage on two wheels

After meeting the private tour guide at the meeting point of this tour (Teatro Massimo), you will receive a brand-new bike with a helmet and you will be ready to start cycling! Palermo’s urban structure allows everybody having a basic fitness level to discover the city with no stress. Thanks to the Norman, Islamic and Byzantine peoples ruling Palermo over the centuries, you will be able to see how different overlapping architectural styles can create a special harmony within the city. Are you ready to dip into the marvelous atmosphere of the Sicilian capital? 

Explore Palermo’s symbols in the historic center 

Palermo is full of cultural symbols that dot the historic center and maybe with a walking tour you wouldn’t have the chance to discover them all, but the good news is that with a bike tour you can cover more kilometers than you would do walking! With this tour on two wheels you will reach the monumental church that embodies the different architectural styles that characterize the city, the amazing Cathedral of Palermo. From the outside you will see other wonders like the Martorana church, which has been named a UNESCO heritage site, and Palazzo dei Normanni which is the oldest Royal Residence in Europe. Even if you won’t enter these attractions you will have the opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of the city’s traffic and discover Palermo's masterpieces in a sustainable way.

Taste the typical Sicilian granita

Cycling far and wide through the streets of Palermo is sure to make you hungry, which is why we thought to include a stop at one of Palermo's coolest pastry bars, where you'll have a chance to sample the Sicilians' favorite snack, granita! If you think of this refreshment as a simple mixture of ice and syrups you are missing some important details, like the right heating and freezing techniques used to obtain the creamiest result, and the use of the freshest ingredients to preserve the amazing authentic flavor of the typical granita.


Don’t miss the chance to explore the “Layered City” in an innovative eco-friendly way, and enjoy the personalized attention of this private Palermo bike tour!
