Palermo & Monreale

Starting from 110
Days of execution: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday

The city of Palermo lies at the foot of Monte Pellegrino on a promontory described by Goethe as the most beautiful he had ever seen. In Palermo, more than anywhere else in Sicily, the historical periods revealed by the different architectural styles overlap. Its thousand-year history has given it an artistic and architectural heritage that ranges from the remains of Punic walls to Art Nouveau villas, aristocratic palaces and 17th-century squares, Baroque churches and Neoclassical theatres. The residence of emirs and kings, Palermo preserves monuments from the Arab-Norman period, including the beautiful Cathedral, the Church of the Martorana, one of the most fascinating Byzantine churches of the Middle Ages in Italy, and the Palatine Chapel, the highest example, from a historical and artistic point of view, of the coexistence of apparently irreconcilable cultures, religions and ways of thinking, since Byzantine, Muslim and Latin workers were involved in the wise management of the power of Roger II. Lunch in an old 19th-century focacceria. Afterwards, visit to Monreale and its imposing Arab-Norman cathedral, defined as the eighth wonder of the world, and the splendid cloister, an admirable masterpiece of art, sculpture and inlay of semi-precious stones!
