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.
