The Sicilian art of craftsmanship

The area near Teatro Massimo in Palermo is full of small shops and boutiques ready to be discovered. Your exploration will start at a renowned embroidery workshop known for personalized trousseaus. Then, enrich your knowledge of ancient crafts like silver, goldwork, and leatherwork along the small streets of the city center. Stroll through the historic Jewish quarter, savoring coffee and granitas at Torrefazione Stagnitta. Return to Quattro Canti and the Cassaro, admiring monuments, and end your tour with visits to ceramic workshop and the not-to-be-missed “Teatro dei Pupi”.
