What You Can Expect
Glide across to Piazza Verdi to see Teatro Massimo – Italy’s largest opera house – and swing past Capo Market where a mish-mash of busy alleyways are home to stalls selling some of Palermo’s best food. Maneuver past the crowds to Piazza della Vittoria and stop for pictures against the backdrop of the Palace of the Normans. The lavish gardens of Villa Bonanno are in the square, too, and you’ll see its lush palm trees and a few interesting Roman relics before leaving the square.
Continue to Piazza Bologni to see two ornate palaces – Villafranca and Belmote-Riso – as well as statues of King Charles V (or the King of the Kingdom of Two Sicilies, as he once precociously titled himself). Pass alongside Arab-Norman churches and see the Gallery of Modern Art – Palermo’s cultural hotspot that’s housed inside a former convent.
Stop for more photos outside Mirto Place and work your way past the green oasis that is Garibaldi Garden, next to Steri-Chiaramonte Palace. Then, head to the neighborhood of La Kalsa to glide around Piazza Kalsa. Pass through the Greek’s Gate, and then head out to Foro Italico – the city’s charming seafront. Stop to admire the sights at Villa a Mare and see some of Palermo’s top attractions gracing the vista: Butera Palace, Felice Gate and the Church of Santa Maria della Catena.
Glide past the ancient port of Palermo, into the neighborhood of Castellammare, and then continue along the waterfront of the modern harbor before finishing at the start point.
Awesome experience! We loved our Segway tour of Palermo. Instruction on Segway use and our guide were the best! Highlight of tour was traveling through the back streets and through the Market area! Loved it!
It was nice because our family of 4 with 2 bigger children first experience with a segway.
2 people from the organisation, 1 to help/guide with the Segway Leo who was very helpfull and funny and 1 guide, but she did not want/dare to use the segway so had to go by foot and had to adapt to her pace and she came only to the real highlights.
Palermo is also not such a special city, but was better then on foot as it was really hot.
