Starting point
Your accommodation in Sicily

Travel to Monreale, the Norman Mons Regalis, to have a look at the majestic dome, built in the 12th century by the Norman King William II. You'll also visit Cefalù, known for its long golden beaches, as well as its many other monumental and artistic jewels.

What to expect?

  • The majestic dome of Monreale is 6340 square meters of polychrome and gold mosaics, and is a magnificent testimony of the Norman conquest of Sicily.

  • Transfer to Cefalù, and visit the Norman Duomo, the Osterio Magno that was the probable residence of King Roger II. A visit to Cefalù cannot exclude a walk along the lanes in the historical center, where you can linger among the numerous shops of ceramics and souvenirs.

  • In the early afternoon, head back to Palermo, tasting five different Sicilian treats along the way, including panelle (chickpea fritters) and arancine (deep-fried rice balls). After we arrive, we'll do some sightseeing in Palermo, an ancient town that has been a crossroads for civilization in the Mediterranean for ages. We will see the Cathedral, Quattro Canti Square, and the Massimo Theatre.
