If you travel to experience unique places, culture, history, architecture, & cuisine, then join Le Baccanti for their Best of Palermo tour. We walked & talked together, not in a mass group, but side by side, tasted the wonderful and different foods from street vendors and savored the colorful sights of the food market and the city's stunning culture. Our guide shared their city's rich history with us, stopped to answer questions and patiently waited while we took pictures & made purchases. Our guide's vast knowledge & enthusiasm made the 3 hours pass quickly. This was one of the best tours we've experienced - worth every euro. Wear walking shoes!
