Here the the interior walls are all decorated with golden mosaics that represent the scenes from the Old and New Testaments. Above all there is the immense image of Christ Pantocrator. The Cathedral is next to the magnificent cloister with ogival arches supported by twin columns, alternately decorated with mosaics. Entrance fees are not included.
Then continue towards Palermo. Start with a guided tour of Palermo’s Cathedral. Later discover one of Palermo’s famous open air markets called “Capo”, where you will have a degustation of the real Sicilian Street Food. This lively market is a blend of general confusion and a jumble of vendors’ stalls, winding toward the old gate of what used to be the city wall.
