Palermo City Hop-on Hop-off Tour
From US$23.05
Avoid navigating Palermo’s chaotic traffic with this hop-on, hop-off bus tour. Get quickly oriented by seeing the city’s top attractions in a short amount of time, listening to commentary along the way. From the top of a double-decker bus, you’ll get 360-degree views of highlights including Vucciria Market, Quatro Canti, and Teatro Massimo—one of Italy’s largest opera houses—and how long you spend at each is up to you.
What to Expect
Your tour of Palermo begins when you board the hop-on, hop-off bus. Climb on at any of the stops around the city, and disembark any time you want to visit a nearby attraction.
Buses follow two routes. Line A has stops at the Quattro Canti, Botanical Gardens, Vucciria Market, and other attractions. Line B includes stops at the English Garden, Mercato del Capo, and Teatro Massimo. Along each route, learn about the city’s history from your audio guide, offered in several languages.
This flexible tour lets you decide your own ending time and location. Plan your own itinerary, and get off at stops that interest you most. Your ticket includes unlimited rides for 24 hours after your first use.
