A Tour of Palermo and its Gardens
Full day - from Palermo center or Port of Palermo

Gardens at Villa Igea, Palermo by Ken Kirk


09:30 AM - Meet our driver and guide to start the visit of Palemo.

Our visits this morning include the Palatine Chapel , a superb example of Arabian-Norman architecture built in the period 1130- 1140. Nearby is the church of St. John of the Hermit which was built by Roger II in 1132. The features of the structure are unique in that it was first constructed as a mosque and then later converted to Christian use.

Our program this morning will also include a visit to Villa Malfitano, by special permission of the Whitaker Foundation. Villa Malfitano was constructed in the late 19th century by the archaeologist, botanist, and ornithologist – Joseph Isaac Whitaker.

The Villa is surrounded by gardens containing plants that Whitaker collected from all over the world. There is a marvellous variety of tropical, sub – tropical and Mediterranean plants here , including the rare blue palm Butia Capitata.

Lunch (not included)

After lunch we will continue to visit Palermo with the Cathedral, Quattro Canti square, etc. Walk through the streets of the historical center, and visit to the town's popular Vucciria market.

We’ll visit also : The Botanic garden of Villa Giulia. Opened in 1795, it is perhaps one of the most important botanic gardens in Eurpe. There are many exotic plants and trees here including magnificent examples of Ficus Magnoliodes, water lilies, yuccas, aloes and cycads.
