We will set out on a walking field trip led by our Group Leader of Palermo including Capo Market located in a concentrated section on the Via Volturno. We will pass through Porta Carini, the Quattro Canti Baroque square, and Piazza della Vergogna. Admiring this Renaissance fountain built in Florence and moved to Palermo, we’ll notice how its impressive architecture features impressive sculptures, of which all figures are nude and therefore it bears the nickname: The Shame Fountain. We will visit visit the Opera House Massimo Theater, one of the largest opera theaters in Europe and one of Palermo’s most important buildings.
This meal has been excluded from the program cost and is on your own to enjoy what you like. The Group Leader will be happy to offer suggestions.
Afterwards, we will return to the hotel and we will enjoy some free time. Take this opportunity for personal independent exploration to see and do what interests you most. The Group Leader will be happy to offer suggestions.
At a local restaurant in Palermo, we’ll have a plated meal featuring regional cuisine, plus a glass of wine, water, and coffee; other beverages available for purchase.
