Three is the magic number on this tour, as you tick off a trio of Palermo’s biggest hitters. After meeting your guide at the port, you’ll drive into the centre of the city to see the Palatine Chapel. You’ll see gold-emblazoned columns and 12th-century mosaics inside, before making tracks for the grand Palazzao dei Normanni. There’s a regal feel to the palace, and your guide will tell you about its royal connections to the ancient Kings of Sicily. Before you head back to the port, there’s time to stroll around the corner to Palermo Cathedral – one of the city’s most iconic landmarks. You won’t have time to head inside, but the arches and domes make for stunning pictures from the flagstone courtyard.
