City SightSeeing Palermo

It's easy, it's convenient, it's fun.

It's also the best way to give you a quick overview of the city, before defining an itinerary for the rest of your stay, deciding which area of the city you want to visit again on your own and which sites you would like to see in more details.

With the Hop on Hop off tour of Palermo, you will enjoy an exciting visit to the city.

You can purchase tickets on board for 20 euros per person, departing from the terminal nearby the Teatro Politeama, but you can also join the tour at every stop.

Line A bus will drive in front of the Teatro Massimo, one of the most famous opera houses in Europe, continuing towards Piazza Quattro Canti and the nearby Vucciria Market.
The tour continues towards the Botanical Gardens, passing near Palazzo Steri.

After a quick glimpse of the Central Station, you will find yourselves in the vicinity of the Royal Palace, following the Flea Market and the Cathedral, before stopping at the port and then returning to the terminal.

Line B has a different itinerary including the Castle of La Zisa, the colorful open-air market Mercato del Capo, the Massimo Theatre and other interesting stops.

Commentary on both lines is multi-lingual (including English) and you will each be given individual earphones.
