Palermo & Monreale Tour

Itinerary Details

1/2 DAY TOUR
Meet your private driver and guide for a day excursion in Monreale and Palermo. You’ll discover the Arab-Norman splendour of the Monreale Cathedral. This treasure dates from the 12th century and shows the diverse architectural influences of both the Normans and the Arab population. Return in Palermo to visit the historic food markets as Ballarò and La Vucciria. Then you’ll be enchanted by Palermo’s wide boulevards, traditional Sicilian Old Quarter, and baroque palaces. You’ll see the city’s main sights, including Quattro Canti (the Four Corners), an extravagant baroque square ringed by four buildings with baroque sculptures that depict the Four Seasons, Spanish kings, and the patron saints of Palermo’s four old quarters. You’ll see the twelfth-century Cathedral, which houses a pantheon of royal tombs.
