  • 3-hour bike tour of Palermo
  • Cycle through the Sicilian capital's most interesting neighborhoods
  • Explore the old city and more modern downtown area
  • Hear myths from Palermo's ancient and medieval past from a local guide
  • See where residents do their daily shopping at traditional markets

Take your pick from three daily departure times, and meet your guide in a central Palermo location. Get fitted for a rental bike and set off on an open-air exploration of modern downtown and the old city center. As you cycle along the city's grand boulevards and narrow alleyways, trace Palermo’s long and fascinating history, from ancient Roman times through the medieval period and into its days as a modern Italian capital.
See fine examples of Moorish architecture in La Kalsa, the city's old Arab neighborhood, and enjoy the green seaside oasis of the Foro Italico park. See ships harbored at the Cala port, and admire the upscale shops and restaurants that line Via Libertà and Via Ruggero Settimo. Pedal through the squares and streets of the old Jewish ghetto, and be a part of the daily bustle at the traditional Capo, Vucciria, and Ballarò markets.
Throughout the 3-hour tour, listen to your guide’s narration and enjoy the freedom and flexibility to stop often for photos and brief history lessons. You'll cover more ground than a walking tour while still moving at a pace that lets you soak up Palermo’s distinctive atmosphere and notice the details of daily life.

I think it would have been very good but unfortunately our guide who was very nice human being and very enthusiastic was quite limited in her English making it difficult to understand her
full marks for her effort but language was an issue
