During this tour we will focus on the most important part of the capital that is its medieval area, where it will be possible to visit the splendid Baroque and Arab-Norman sites of the city. The Cathedral is also a must: a magnificent and imposing building that stands on the ruins of the ancient cathedral; it was transformed into a mosque by the Arabs and rededicated to Christian worship by the Norman kings.
Then we will reach the village of Monreale driving along a beautiful road that climbs the slopes of the Conca D'Oro. The Baroque Cathedral of Monreale, built during the Norman domination, will leave you enchanted.
