Offers details

A half day cultural excursion to discover the wonders of Monreale and the Cappuccini monks' catacombs, pick-up included from the city of Palermo!

Visiting the underground cemetary of the Cappuccini monks takes you back in space and time as you enter into a fascinating, strange and mysterious world which you will never forget. The catacombs of the Cappuccini monks hold a great deal of precious documents and information which have allowed us to piece together the history, lives and clothing of an ancient society. Even more thrilling, it also holds a huge collection of skeletons and mummified corpses, which you will see on the tour.

With an expert multi-lingual local guide, you will visit the Duomo of Monreale, which made up part of a complex self-contained fort which contained also the Royal Palace, the Abbey and the Bishops. The Cathedral of Monreale was built in 1174 by William II and within you will find breathtaking golden mosaics that depict scenes from both the Old and New Testaments. Over time it has maintained its original configuration and its style as "ecclesiastically loaded", accentuated by the two majestic rectangular towers that mark the beautiful exterior.

Duration: The tour departs at 9.00 from your accommodation and will finish at approximately 13.00.
Pick-up: included from Palermo.


Return shuttle from your accommodation to the catacombs and to Monreale Cathedral.
