In particular, your guide will take you inside the Cathedral of Palermo to visit the crypt and the treasure room. You'll then walk to the Cassaro alto and to Piazza della Vittoria, where you can still see some of the mosaics of the Roman villa.
Your guide will then show you San Giovanni degli Eremiti (from the outside) and after that you'll have the chance to enjoy a visit inside the Royal Palace and the Palatine Chapel, the political and cultural center of the Norman kingdom in Palermo.
