OverviewExclusive Private Tour with a licensed LOCAL GUIDE and Top Class Mercedes Minivan
This trip takes you out of the city driving east on the north coast for a private shore excursion to the town of
CEFALU'. This lovely city is part of the Madonie Regional Natural Park.The sturdy Norman lines of Cefals Cathedral are softened by palm trees and tourists shirts are filling the city hall piazza before it. The12th century Arab-Norman monument is part of the World Heritage Site.
Included is also a visit of
MONREALE, the Monastery commissioned by William II (1154-89), the Norman ruler of Sicily. This structure features both Sicilian and Byzantine craftsmen. The highlight point of the Cathedral is its interior, incandescent with the gold of the mosaics, covering the walls of the nave, aisles, transept, and apse. All in all, a total of 81800 square feet covered by this finery in total.
- Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
- Informative, friendly and professional guide
- Private tour is operated with just your party and a guide/driver
Know More about this tour
Make a stop for lunch (own expense). Your guide can recommend some wonderful places with typical local specialties.
Next drive to Monreale, the apotheosis of Norman architecture in Sicily. Featuring a cathedral with its splendid mosaics from the 12th century, it was part of the World Heritage Arab Norman Period, built under William II. It rivals Saint Sophia in Istanbul and Saint Mark's in Venice in its use of decorative mosaics. While it is Romanesque style largely, the cathedral combines aspects of Arab, Byzantine and Norman architecture.
At the end of your tour, you will be brought back to your cruise ship or hotel.
