Palermo - Monreale - Cefalu' Tour

star-5
In 2015 UNESCO declared the itinerary "Palermo Arab Norman and the Cathedrals of Cefalù and Monreale" a World Heritage Site. The wealth of this island is also due to the peoples who invaded it and left their inheritances as well as, after the storms, corals and starfishes remain on the shore. With this tour, UNESCO celebrates in particular the legacy of two civilizations - that of the Arabs and that of the Normans, a people of warriors from Scandinavia with influences from Romanesque and Byzantine art - that have deposited in Sicily unparalleled architectural and artistic treasures. We will accompany you to the discovery of these and many other treasures which make our land unique and unmatched with the comfort and safety of our vehicles truly conducted by our reliable and professional drivers.

Buscemi - Palazzolo Acreide - Marzamemi Tour

Buscemi - Palazzolo Acreide - Marzamemi Tour

star-5
A trip to an unknown Sicily, unknown to the majority of tourists, away from the usual tourist spot. A true Sicily to discover and enjoy! The small village of Buscemi, with the houses of the historical center faithfully restored as they were more than a century ago, to let you experience a leap back in time to understand how life took place at that time. Palazzolo Acreide, located in the Sicilian hinterland, in the middle of Iblei mountains. To reach it, you must travel a very beautiful landscape with panoramic views completely different from those that can be seen along the coast. The town is enchanting, with some of the most beautiful baroque churches of Sicily, so much that it was included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 2002. Marzamemi is considered one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, where everything smells of the sea between old stone houses, wooden boats and picturesque views. The perfect place where to taste the authentic flavors of the Mediterranean sea.
