DescriptionThe first stop of the tour will be Palermo. Palermo is not only Sicily’s capital city, but maybe the most chaotic, vibrant and energetic place in Europe. Originally founded by the Phoenicians in the 8th-century b.c., Palermo has been Sicilian capital since the Arab domination in 9th-century. Arabs, Norman, French, Spanish. All these different nominations have left their print on the city. Today Palermo is a unique mix of styles, architecture, and art. It is these combinations of styles that have earned the city recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will walk through its streets, wholly covered with sights, scents and flavors. Its Moroccan-style market “A’ Vucciria” with all the possible products at your disposal. With all of the incredible Arab-Norman churches and palaces, the city will leave you breathless. The second stop of your tour will be Monreale. An old Sicilian saying states: “who goes to Palermo without visiting Monreale, parts as a donkey and returns as a pig”. When you enter the breathtaking Arab-Norman cathedral in Monreale, you will understand why. More than 6300 squared meters of dazzling Byzantine mosaics depicting biblical scenes on a gold background. You won’t see anything like it. This Cathedral has been designated as one of several buildings named in a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a group of nine inscribed as Arab-Norman Palermo and the Cathedral Churches of Cefalù and Monreale. Here in Monreale you will be offered a free snack made of Sicilian “Tavola Calda” and Wine. From Monreale, you will return to Catania arriving back around 7pm.
