Palermo Monreale Walking Tour Excursion Reviews

For a bit of calm and fresh air outside the Italian city of Palermo, consider taking a Monreale walking tour. Monreale is a small mountainside village that overlooks fields of fruit and nut trees and is home to a cathedral that is known as the most beautiful in Sicily.
A great cathedral overlooking the city, well worth the visit!

You would never know from the outside how beautiful this church is inside. The walls and ceiling are covered in tile mosaics portraying stories from the bible. The amount of gold tile is stunning. (Note: wear clothing that covers your knees. If you don't dress appropriately, they will sell you a smock for one Euro). Stopped for delicious cannoli and drinks at a restaurant with a nice view of Palermo, down the hill. Read Less

The tour is obviously very popular and there were big crowds at 9.30am.

The tour is obviously very popular and there were big crowds at 9.30am. The Cathedral is spectacular but the crowds made it uncomfortable. We were given 1 hour free time which was ridiculous as there was nothing to do on a really cold day.

We first took a tour of Palermo with various stops.
Sail Date: March 2015
We first took a tour of Palermo with various stops. Then it was on to Monreale. The Cathedral is magnificent. The mosaic work is astounding. This was the highlight of this tour. As with our other tours, back to ship in plenty of time.
