What to expect at Duomo Monreale: The Duomo is a must see. It’s a 20-30 minute ride from Independence Square. Hop-on/Hop-off runs a bus. There is also a city bus from the Square. Or take a cab. The Duomo itself is stunning. Take the time...More

When the Bishop of Palermo was forced to flee during the Arab invasion, parishioners started to build the Cathedral at Monreale, a small town overlooking Palerno. The mosaics there (all gold) rival those of Ravenna. This visit can be done as a half day trip...More

What an absolutely beautiful Cathedral, amazing architecture, gorgeous frescos. The Cloister area, would look familiar to the Godfather movie fan. Great mosaics on the columns. Absolutely worth the trip up there.

As good as everyone says. Stunning architecture and art. The audio guide was helpful. Worth a good 1-2 hours to see properly.

Its a wonderful place to visit, amazing artwork adorns everywhere and its pretty big to boot. The alter is enhanced with huge paintings of the saints, and the history of the religion is shown in murals high above your head. The arc is too small...More

The building is rather squashed in its location and the outside gives little indication of the riot of colour within. Get the very good audio guide at he entrance and allow at least 60 minutes to explore the rich mosaics. Even on a dull day,...More
