This church is buried in the city but it's worth the trip. Beautiful setting with mountains behind it. Unfortunately Monreale was closed this day but the mosaics here are gorgeous. The city is amazing and the beach is paradise.

The atmosphere was completely Italian. The surrounding cobblestone lanes - all accessible via car - sort of. Lots of photo ops and shopping available. Lots of people watching too. A great walking experience.

Marvelous example of Sveve architecture, situated in a pictoresque little city, only 50 miles from Palermo. Worth a visit.

Worth visiting - and the cloister, which is to the left of the cathedral if you're looking from the main square

Hi, Drive (or take a bus trip) to the "Marsala Cantine Pellegrino Winery" in Marsala where, besides trying their wine, you will see three beautiful examples of Sicilian carts in their display area. Enjoy.
