If ancient cities, holy monuments and a touch of the macabre are your thing, then this three-in-one tour is a must. Taking in UNESCO-listed Monreale Cathedral, historic Palermo and the Capuchin catacombs, this day is Sicily at its most diverse.
First up is one of Italy's most important religious monuments – Monreale Cathedral. Nestled in a valley of orange groves and almond trees, you'll marvel at the Norman architecture that saw it make the UNESCO-list. Then, with a guide, you'll be introduced to the history of its brilliant, pure-gold mosaics.
You'll then stop by the Sicilian capital of Palermo for a walking tour of some of the best-preserved historic landmarks in the world. After, you can take time to sip a cappuccino in the Quattro Canti, browse the typical market, or grab some lunch in the famous Piazza Verdi. We'll round things off with an optional visit to one of Sicily's darker tourist spots – the Capuchin Catacombs – home to the mummified bodies of local monks and residents as far back as the 16th Century.
