The mosaic-filled Monreale Cathedral (Duomo di Monreale) is both one of Italy’s most impressive masterpieces of medieval architecture and one of Sicily’s finest examples of Norman design. The triumph of Norman, Arab, Byzantine and classical elements was built by William II in 1184, and continues to dazzle visitors almost 1,000 years later.

Monreale tour: stunning mosaics and beautiful blend of christian and islamic

Guided tour of Monreale, just 5 km from Palermo to 310 m above sea level on the hill of Mount Caputo. The visit will start from the cathedral, symbol of the town and declared in 2015 Unesco World Heritage monument. The Cathedral is undoubtedly an architectural masterpiece of the 12th century, in which different tastes are linked to the architecture of northern Europe, Romanesque art and Arabic art. Outside it is richly enriched by two bronze doors, the first of the Bonanno da Pisa and the second, not least, of the Barisano di Trani who also built that of Ravello and the cathedral of Trani. The interior is illuminated by magnificent gold mosaics that culminate in the Christ Pantocrator in the apsidal basin as the highest expression of figurative art. The tour continues with the visit of the monastery and the cloister flanked to the cathedral in the ancient Benedictine monastery and with the belvedere overlooking the valley and the golden basin of orange and citrus groves.

SICILY - Culture & Flavours 8 Days/7 Nights Tour
"This tour is operated by a very professional travel agency. They showed their professionalism from the moment I landed in Catania - starting with my pickup and taking me directly to my hotel, where everything was already pre-arranged for me. Then the guide (Antonella) met the group at the hotel for the orientation the evening before tour began. Tour devices and headsets were provided - this makes the tour great, as you can hear the guide this way within distance. Antonella spoke perfect English and translated everything from Italian to me - word to word! Amazing! She was extremely attentive, kind and a pleasure to spend a week with! All instructions were very clear and the luggage pick up arrangements are done very professionally - where the bus can not reach the hotel in Catania, the other driver came with the van and picked up everyone’s luggage and delivered it to a hotel! Itinerary of the tour was great! - all places visited were beautiful. It was a mix of beautiful cities, archaeological sites and gorgeous beaches. Hotels were very nice - centrally located, all lunches were included, plenty of food (with wine!) and very delicious! I don’t eat onion and each restaurant accommodated me with preparing separate dishes without onion for me! I also enjoyed the food tastings which were included on the tour - we tasted chocolates, wines, nuts, honey and almond cookies - it was amazing! Stefania (from the agency) was constantly in contact with me, inquiring how my tour was - I really did appreciate it! Also, the agency arranged for a Covid test for me (it was very challenging to find a laboratory in Catania in the summer!) and a transfer there, as well. The driver helped with translation at the test and was with me all the times until the test was completed! Transportation for the tour - an extremely professional driver who knows the roads very well and a very comfortable, well-air conditioned bus! I also bought extra 1-day tours from them - all very interesting. Please do inquire. Al in all - I give this tour a 5* review! I bought it on Viator just like that and was just lucky with the professionalism of this agency. Highly recommended!!!"..."

Monreale And Cefalù Half Day Excursion
"Great value tour. This tour is just transportation to two different towns with free time at each. Having a driver get you around In Palermo is a must since they know how to navigate the narrow roads. There were a total of 6 persons on the tour and they used a nice van. The best advise of the day : the entry to the churches is free. They do have ticket stands; but this is only if you want access to the non-public areas (towers). The first stop was Monreale, where we had about 1.5 hours to visit the cathedral and stroll the town. Great long distance views back to Palermo. The 2nd stop was Cefalu where we had a bit over 2 hours. We were dropped off at the beach boardwalk and we walked thru the town. The Cefalu cathedral was quite a ways “uphill”, but worth the walk. We found a wine+tapas bar right along the water and enjoyed wine and cheese from a cave like nook in the old city wall. We did not feel rushed. Great tour."..."
