Palermo City Hop-on Hop-off Tour
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.

Quick tour

When one does not have enough time to see everything that Palermo has to offer, the hop on and hop off tour is a good idea especially on the top deck if the buses are on time and weather permitting.

We find that the open top bus tour is a really good way to orientate yourself in a new city and this was no exception. It was good value and the staff were friendly and helpful.
