Monreale is a hillside town, so be prepared for narrow steep road on the approach - and very limited car parking. However the location is stunning, with the Duomo being equally stunning. Entry is from the cloisters at the side of the building and once...More

At the foot of Monte Caputo is the impressive structure of this cathedral which is lavishly decorated with beautiful mosaics. Some tell the tales of the Old Testament, others the miracles of Christ. They meet at the apse where a 7m high mosaic of Christ...More

Monreale Cathedral is roughly a 30min drive from the centre of Palermo and the best place to park is the garage at 102 Via Palermo which was about 4 euro for 2 hours. The walk from the garage to the Piazza Guglielmo where the cathedral...More

A disappointing and frustrating visit. After following signs on tortuous little roads to a very inaccessible car park, we walked up to the piazza outside the Duomo, and had exceptionally bad food in a local restaurant. We should have stuck to ice cream or consulted...More

Dolce and Gabanna hired the whole building. A whole day wasted and no information. Even the outside of the building was ugly because of the material of the camera crew. Their stupid models arrived in their bus cheering. Fences were placed in the whole city...More
