Enjoy two routes with one ticket as you hop on and off Palermo, the chief town of Sicily - the name derived from the Greek "Panormus" meaning "All Port."

On this tour you will enjoy an exciting visit, starting from the terminal outside the Politeama Theatre, overlooking the square of the same name. You will pass by in front of the Massimo Theatre and continue towards Piazza Quattro Canti and the nearby Vucciria Market. The tour continues towards the botanical gardens, passing near Palazzo Steri. After a quick glance of the Central Station, you will find yourself in the vicinity of the Royal Palace, the Flea Market and the Cathedral before returning to the terminal along the ancient via Roma.

The second route takes you to the beautiful villas of Palermo. Starting from the terminal outside the Politeama Theatre and past the gorgeous English Garden, the bus tour continues towards Villa Malfitano and wonderful Zisa Castle. The bus tour continues passing near the Mercato del Capo and the Massimo Theatre, towards the port and then returns to the terminal in Politeama Square.
