An excellent 4 hour tour. We drove through Palermo, which is a small yet very sophisticated and chic city; passed by the great big, (huge) beautiful opera house and on to a very pleasant surprise, but as planned, the Cathedral Monreale. Josie knows this place in GREAT DETAIL. It is truly spectacular; one of the great wonders of the world, and soon to be considered a World Heritage Site. Nothing compares to this cathedral's interior, and we had an excellent guide to boot!
