On my last day in Palermo, the capital of Sicily, I decided to go visit the UNESCO heritage sites of the city, listed under the title "The Arab-Norman sites of Palermo, Monreale and Caflù". In fact it's not a single site but a complex of buildings located in 3 different cities, all of which dating back to the Arab and the Norman domination of the Island.
I finally went down to Palermo. I lived my whole trip to Sicily in anticipation for this. I had great expectations about Palermo, especially after its Arab-Norman Cathedral was listed by Unesco among the world heritage sites.
I left Marsala after a very good and very abundant breakfast and started driving my car, direction Palermo I decided to add another cultural pit stop in Monreale, a world famous place for Mosaics.
I am spending my weekends roaming around on the Alps, the hillside of Langhe, Monferrato and Roearo, the Lake district and many other places I have always underestimated or neglected.
I believe I need a Local Guide for several reasons, even if I am a big independent traveller.
