A day trip to discover and learn traditions, beautiful things and secrets of a city that inspires.
After being picked up from your cruise ship in Palermo Harbour, you will be driven to Monreale.
Monreale is located above the Golden Valley – named after the citrus groves that were once ubiquitous in the valley. You will visit the Monreale Cathedral, a remarkable cathedral complex, and marvel at the golden mosaics from the 12th Century.
Return to the Old Town of Palermo via Mondello, a small fishing village on the way in to Palermo.
You will see the Teatro Politeama, Via Ruggero Settimo and Teatro Massimo. Take a tour of the imposing cathedral with the Hohenstaufen graves. A city that fascinates with its Norman and Arab influences.
Finally, before being taken to the harbour, explore popular culinary locations such as the Vucciria Market and Mercato dei Capo. Try one of the five Sicilian specialities, e.g. “arancine” (stuffed rice balls) and “panelle” (chickpea fritters).
