From
$135.29

More

* A traveler said: "The tour starts early in the morning from Palermo. But it has to, if you want to see Etna and Taormina in one day. The driver/guide Joshua was great. Fluently in Italian, English and German he could share some of his knowledge of Sicily and the places we visited. If you go to the Etna, it is recommended to buy a ticket for the whole tour: Cable car and trucks taking you as close as possible to the summit of the volcano. Interesting experience. Also the visit to Taormina was worth the time, although I wouldn't stay there for more than one day. Nothing to do ... If you are in Palermo and want to visit the Etna, I can definitely recommend this tour."

* A traveler said: "Salvatore was an excellent guide to have for our introduction to Palermo. Being exceptionally well travelled himself he was able to choose venues for our walking tour that gave a good foundation for further enjoying the city including restaurants and street food options we might not have found otherwise. In addition to the street savvy, he is well versed in the history and cultural influences impacting the city and Sicily overall. Furthermore since Viator booked three hours and his agency indicated only two, the issue was resolved quickly and professionally. We had our three hour tour! Highly recommended."

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.
