Private Palermo and Monreale

Relax in your private transportation as you are whisked through the bustling streets of Palermo, past the octagonal main square, Quattro Canti, given shape by four ornate buildings with exquisite facades that face one another. In Palermo, you'll tour near the Royal Palace of Palermo, where you'll find the sparkling gold mosaics of the Palentine Chapel.

From Palermo you will head to Monreale, a small town that boasts one of the most spectacular examples of Norman architecture in the world, the Cathedral of Monreale. The fortress like cathedral is covered with intricate carvings and inlays, but it is the inside that is truly awe inspiring. The baroque chapel has Corinthian columns soaring from the marble floors to the arched ceilings and swirling, gilded Byzantine mosaics featuring kings, saints, and angels. It's an unforgettable sight.
