Spend your day exploring the northern coast of Sicily. Discover the rich historic and cultural heritage of Palermo, the island's capital, before heading to the small town of Cefalù, whose cathedral is one of the greatest examples of Norman architecture in the world.

The multicultural past of Sicily resulted in a unique mix of architectural styles typical of its capital. Churches with Byzantine and Norman elements and buildings with Gothic and Baroque architecture are only a few examples of what Palermo's historic center has to offer.

Tour Palermo Cathedral and see the tombs of emperors and royal figures, including a Roman sarcophagus. Follow your guide to the beautiful Palace of the Normans, former seat of the Kings of Sicily. Marvel at the wonderful mosaics and the Arabic arches and scripts adorning the roof of the Palatine Chapel, the royal chapel located on the palace's second floor.

After a free time for lunch on your own in Palermo, make your way to Cefalù. Located on a lofty and precipitous rock, Cefalù is one of the major tourist attractions in the region with several ancient remains and a stunning Norman and Byzantine-style cathedral.
