Description

From Palermo, you will be driven to Monreale to see where the Arab-Norman art and architecture reached the pinnacle of its glory with the Dome, launched in 1174 by William II, that represents the scenes from the Old and New Testaments all in golden mosaics. Then onto Cefalu, a charming coastal town, that has a massive Norman Cathedral with outstanding mosaics. Later back to Palermo to explore the lively Capo Market, a large open air street market that captures the flavor of Palermo's Saracen Arab past. Capo is a blend of general confusion and a jumble of vendors' stalls, winding toward the old gate (Porta Carini) of what used to be the city wall. This afternoon we continue by seeing Piazza Pretoria and Via Maqueda, whose "four corners" converge Palermo at a quartet of baroque palaces left over from the heyday of Spanish rule dating from 1560. Later return to the hotel.
