Admire the dazzling mosaics of Monreale’s cathedral, then explore the fishing village of Cefalù

This full-day tour will start in the hilltop village of Monreale, where a local guide will show you the stunning cathedral built by the Normans in the 12th century, as well as the lovely Benedectine cloister with exquisitely carved columns and arches. Inside the cathedral, walls and columns shimmer with stunning mosaics covering a surface of over 6,000 square meters. Then the driver will take you eastwards to Cefalù, a pretty fishing village squeezed between a dramatic mountain peak and a sunny stretch of sand. Here you will have free time to indulge in some shopping and stroll around the colorful streets to explore the top sights, including the 12th-century cathedral decorated with precious mosaics and surrounded by a lovely square lined with palm trees. Not to miss is also the picture-postcard beach overlooked by old fishermen’s houses.
