Politeama Garibaldi Theater (Teatro Politeama Garibaldi) Tours

Politeama Garibaldi Theater (Teatro Politeama Garibaldi)
The imposing Politeama Garibaldi Theater overlooks Palermo’s Piazza Ruggero Settimo with its triumphal arch entrance. It was built in the late 19th century, and today is home to the Orchestra Sinfonica Siciliana.

The word “politeama” comes from Greek and refers to the theater being built for multiple purposes, since Palermo already had a grand opera house in the Teatro Massimo. It’s primarily known for the Orchestra, however, and looks every bit inside like the classic Italian theater it is.

The theater itself is all red velvet and gold, with two levels of theater boxes lining the semi-circular main seating area. Two rows of columns ring the outside of the circular building, meeting at the triumphal arch at the entrance. Even the theater’s curtain at the front of the stage is a work of art, depicting a scene from Greek mythology painted in 1891.

Some Palermo tours include visits inside the Politeama Garibaldi Theater, and hop-on hop-off bus tours through the city stop nearby if you want to visit on your own.

Private Gelato, Pastry and Espresso Walking tour

Private Gelato, Pastry and Espresso Walking tour

The Sicilian pastries and ice cream are among the best in Italy, and what about the coffee, the real element of Italian culture. But how can you disentangle yourself from the huge range of bars and pastry shops that populate the city of Palermo? We have developed a process that allows for true gourmands to taste the best examples of pastry, from Sfincetta with ricotta to Setteveli cake, gelato, made with authentic raw materials without the use of industrial ingredients, and the best coffee at both the bar and coffee shop where we can take a close look at the roasting and selection of coffee that make up the blends. All of this of course, in addition to satisfying the palate and the mind thanks to the information given by the guide, will be surrounded by the beauty of Palermo’s monuments which will be introduced and explained by the guide along the way. There are about seven tastings: three pastries, an gelato, typical biscuits, a dessert wine and a coffee.
