In 2015 UNESCO declared the itinerary "Palermo Arab Norman and the Cathedrals of Cefalù and Monreale" a World Heritage Site. The wealth of this island is also due to the peoples who invaded it and left their inheritances as well as, after the storms, corals and starfishes remain on the shore. With this tour, UNESCO celebrates in particular the legacy of two civilizations - that of the Arabs and that of the Normans, a people of warriors from Scandinavia with influences from Romanesque and Byzantine art - that have deposited in Sicily unparalleled architectural and artistic treasures. We will accompany you to the discovery of these and many other treasures which make our land unique and unmatched with the comfort and safety of our vehicles truly conducted by our reliable and professional drivers.

Guided tour of Monreale, just 5 km from Palermo to 310 m above sea level on the hill of Mount Caputo.

The Cathedral is undoubtedly an architectural masterpiece of the 12th century, in which different tastes are linked to the architecture of northern Europe, Romanesque art and Arabic art. Outside it is richly enriched by two bronze doors, the first of the Bonanno da Pisa and the second, not least, of the Barisano di Trani who also built that of Ravello and the cathedral of Trani.

The tour continues with the visit of the monastery and the cloister flanked to the cathedral in the ancient Benedictine monastery and with the belvedere overlooking the valley and the golden basin of orange and citrus groves.
