The Royal chapel designed by Roger II in 1130 representing the fusion of Byzantine , Arab, Norman and Sicilian civilization, this tour includes  a typical market.   The 7 hours tour includes  Monreale Cathedral and the Benedectine cloister Monreale a hill town just outside Palermo with the splendid position high above the Conca D'Oro. There you can find charming cafè and souvenirs shops.  The Cathedral is certainly  the apogee of Arab Norman art inspired by a vision. . The mosaics depict the whole stories of the Bible. The colour are not as bright as those of the contemporary mosaics in the Palatine Chapel, but the figures seem more expressive. They were completed between the late-1100s and early-1200s century by craftsmen from Venice and Sicily. The composition and their features and the symbols  are often the same as those used in the Palatine Chapel. Their arrangement follow a precise program, the  art used as an instrument of religion and serve to educate the faithful in the teachings of the Christian Church.
