Most tours not available as port stay was very short. Tour of city, beach and mountain was quite well done but tight as traffic meant tours got back quite late and all at once with long lines to get back on ship

Saw most of the city from the bus. Stopped at a Cathedral which had a combination of architectures from different centuries.

Private tour through the city. We had very limited time in Palermo so we wanted to be able to control when we got back. There were two group tours that were late and required us to leave over 1 hour later than expected.

In advance, we had arranged for a 4-hour walking tour. Probably could have done as well on our own, or better with something more special at the port.

The driver/guide was very knowledgeable and talked the whole time. He took us through the most important stops: Mondello beach that is called Caribbean Italy, the Opera House, Monte pellegrino statue, Piazza Pretoria and more stops for 6 hours...but the driver went over because of our tour of the opera house

We did our own walking tour of Palermo. I printed off a walking tour from the internet which included the Cathedral and Normandi Palace with the Palatin Chapel. This was outstanding and definitely worth visiting. It is not included in the ship tours. It costs 5 Euros each to go in if you are over 65 and can prove it. Well worth it, really remarkable. The Town Hall is also worth a visit. It is free and has beautiful rooms, paintings and treasures. I had been to Palermo once before and done a city tour but this was better and a lot cheaper.

We visited the Catacombs of the monks and had a very good tour guide explain what it was all about. Then onto the Cathedral and spent little time inside and grabbed a cold drink as it was extremely hot. Then onto the Royal Palace which was amazing, got some great photos. Then lastly onto he Opera house which was very grand. The we were left to do our own thing so we strolled around and managed to see some more sights.

Got only a drive by tour of Palermo, no photo stops. Most of the time was traveling to and from Monreale. By this time into the cruise one church pretty much looked like another.
