The Norman Arab itinerary of Palermo, Monreale and Cefalù - La via delle Biciclette

An ideal route that crosses two civilizations with great artistic contents, has been declared by UNESCO "World Heritage Site" and included in the World Heritage List.
The Norman palace or Palazzo Reale, rises in the oldest part of the city, above a Punic settlement. It is one of the most visited monuments in the city. Inside, it holds the Palatine Chapel, one of the most beautiful churches in the world as it is the synthesis of Byzantine, Muslim and Latin culture.
Great and enchanting opera, the cathedral of Palermo preserves the tomb of Frederick II and his treasures.
San Giovanni degli Eremiti, one of the most interesting masterpieces of Sicilian-Norman art. Church of exotic charm, with its red-plastered domes and its lush garden.
Church of Santa Maria Dell'Ammiraglio, called the "Martorana", a true Byzantine art jewel in the heart of the historic center of Palermo.
Church of San Cataldo, close to the church of "Martorana", an amazing example of Arab architecture.
Palazzo della Zisa, residence and place of restoration of the royal court. Once, a garden of wonders.
Ponte dell'Ammiraglio, a symbol of the connection between the city and the gardens located across the river.
The cathedral of Monreale after Santa Sofia, in Istanbul (Constantinople), is the largest Byzantine mosaic work in the world. Inside, around 6400 square meters of mosaic cover the surface.
Cloister (Monreale) of the Benedictine convent, a marvelous example of Byzantine architecture.
Cathedral of Cefalù, one of the most beautiful cathedrals in the world. The apse, the transept and the adjacent walls are decorated with golden mosaics that culminate in the magnificent Christ Pantocrator, a perfect example of pure Byzantine style.
