Palermo is rich in historic and cultural treasures, but getting around the city and nearby Monreale with public transportation can be stressful and time consuming.

Visit with us one of the most suggestive places in the world! At the Capuchin monastery in Palermo you can discover the Catacombs. Between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, in exchange for rich donations, illustrious Sicilian characters entrusted the bodies of their deceased to the Friars, who were mummified with natural techniques. In addition to being an impressive place, the Catacombs are today a very important historical testimony of a Palermo full of charm and mystery. The second stage of the tour includes the city of Monreale, located on the slopes of Monte Caputo. Founded by the Arabs, it is one of the most important testimonies of the synergistic fusion of two cultures: Arab-Norman. Imposing and dominant, the famous Duomo, a World Heritage Site, rises above the town. You will be impressed by the refinement of the Byzantine elements and the immensity of the Christ Pantocrator.
