Classical Palermo and Monreale Private Tour

Classical Palermo and Monreale Private Tour

This half day private cruise excursion combines the better of 2 marvelous cities: Palermo and Monreale

You start the day with a discovery of Palermo’s main landmarks before heading to Monreale, higher up in the hills. This is a private excursion just for you and your party.

This private tour starts at the cruise port of Palermo, where the guide will welcome you in Sicily.

You will leave the pier for a half day visit which includes the downtown core with its beautiful Teatro Politeama, the Opera House Teatro Massimo, the baroque Via Maqueda with its 4 corners, Piazza della Vergogna with the fountain and the City Hall, Piazza Bellini with its Martorana Church.

Stop at the magnificent Palermo Cathedral for visiting the interior which enshrines a silver urn containing the rests of Palermo Patroness, St. Rosalia as well as the tombs of Norman Kings who ruled Palermo about thousand years ago.

Proceed to Piazza Indipendenza where the Royal Palace is located and drive up to the hilltop of Monreale where you will see one of the most visited monuments in the world: the marvelous Cathedral. Nothing special if you look the outside, but inside you will be astonished by a triumph of 6340 square meters of golden mosaics depicting scenes of Old and New Testament, and the stunning gigantic Christ Pantocrator in the apse.

You have free time to stroll around, admiring the beautiful panorama or having an ice cream before boarding the coach for the way back to the pier.
