Overview
Capital of Sicily, Palermo is a city of rich history and impressive architecture—with hidden secrets round every corner. On this bike tour, hop onto the saddle, escape the tourist trail with your guide, and see sides of Palermo many visitors miss. Spin along peaceful back-streets and through pretty squares, sample Sicilian street food, and experience life in Palermo away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist traps.
What to Expect
Departing from the local office (Discesa dei Giudici n.21), cycle through Palermo at a relaxing, leisurely pace. Palermo is very flat, so the 3-hour tour is appropriate for all ages and fitness levels.

You will pass through the architecturally impressive Piazza Bellini and Pizza Pretoria with their examples of Arab, Norman, Byzantine, and Spanish art. Then, ride across the “Cassaro” to see San Francesco church, Piazza Marina and the oldest giant Ficus tree in Europe. You will also see the ancient palaces from the Spanish Inquisition and the amazing Spasimo church.

Ride along the waterfront, on the huge grass overlooking the sea and the harbor, heading to the first Arab castle on the charming port of Cala. Afterwards, stop for a tasting of unique, regional street food.

Fun exploration

We had a great time exploring the old city. Lara was a great guide. Her explanations were excellent. Bikes were a great way to see the old city since it is relatively flat. We'll thought out tour.
