le Vie dei tesori Palermo 2016

 

It is said that the most beautiful places of Palermo are ten. But the Sicilian capital city has much more to offer. Really much more. And to discover the different souls of this wonderful city, you still have one week left: in fact, the 2016 edition of le Vie dei tesori will continue until October 30th.

 

The roads of the treasures

Vie dei tesori (literally, “the roads of the treasures”) is a great festival dedicated to the city of Palermo. In this case, the treasures are a church reopened, a little-known landscape, a walk with a tour guide, and a new story. It is an opportunity to discover the least-known and most fascinating Palermo.

Palermo is also a city, so to speak, “narrated”. Because a ruin, a palace, a fragment of walls are this: stories of the past that still leaves indelible traces in the present.

 

What le Vie dei tesori offers you

  • 90 places
  • 68 itineraries
  • 65 activities for children
  • 10 main events

 

The final event

It will take place in the last week of October. During the Notte Bianca, visitors will discover the several stages of the Arab-Norman itinerary, Unesco World Heritage: Royal Palace and Palatine Chapel, the church of San Giovanni degli Eremiti, the church of Santa Maria dell’Ammiraglio, the church of San Cataldo, the Cathedral, Zisa, ponte dell’Ammiraglio (a Norman bridge), cathedral of Cefalù, cathedral of Monreale. A real spectacle of mosaics, gold and domes.
