Welcome to Rompinfish!

Yes, the AMAT 389 is a direct bus from Palermo to Monreale.

There are three bus options from Palermo to Monreale – The AMAT urbano #389, AST, and Palermo City Sightseeing.

Palermo’s AMAT #389 runs bus service from Palermo’s P.zza Indipendenza to Monreale every day but Sunday. Beware the pickpockets on this line - It's also a favourite line for inspectors to check that tickets have been validated.

I am thinking of buying the combination ticket for line A line B and Monreale with city sightseeing. I know you have 24 hours with line A & B do you get additional time if you buy the Monreale portion of the ticket. Thanks.

Just be careful on any bus that goes to Moreale ,what ever number you take. It is a mecca for pick pockets, the locals warned us, my husband caught one of them in action , unfortunately another couple on the bus where not as fortunate and lost their wallets. You must be a wise a traveler and be aware of this on any form of public transportation that leads to a tourist destination in any country.

I have to say that our trip to Sicily was amazing and Monrelae must not be missed, Sicily has the most wonderful and welcoming people I have ever meet.

Enjoy!

Welcome back quinnye - good to hear from you....

So true – The runs to Monreale are notorious for pickpockets and also for checks by inspectors for bus ticket validation.

What a wonderful place to go, I hope to go back and rent a car to stay longer. they have wonderful B&B there, near the Dumuno Church. the people are the sellers... wonderful loving people, MY MOTHERS PEOPLE and mine too. I felt like i did not want to go home and it was so disapointing that the tour we were on did not allow us to stay longer. I hated that tour company and the tour guide too. Never again with Insight... they walked you to death. they say its easy pace its 12 hours of walking all day we missed the sistine chapel, how can you miss that? there is nothign like Monreale, its a wonderful place even at the courtyard.
