From a rather drab exterior you quickly pass into the brilliant lights, colours and patterns of the past. The Arab/Norman mosaics of the 12th century vie with 16th century baroque stuccoes, enamels and frescoes, winning hands down. You have to go to the Piazza Pretoria and the Piazza Bellini so restore some equilibrium with a visit here.
There is an entrance charge, but it's very good value compared to many other attractions in Sicily.
