The Arab Norman churches collectively are indescribable. You have to see the glittering mosaics to understand. To take this trip back in time to the multicultural sophisticated world of King Roger II and his dynasty is something every traveller should experience.

Try to go on weekends so you can visit the state rooms as well. The capella Palatina was an amazing site, take your time to admire the artistry and the messages of the makers. Very well stocked bookshop on site as well

Had a lovely morning strolling around the palace. Great place to get interior design ideas. The chandeliers are beautiful

The Cappela Palatina is so phenomenally beautiful and resonant with history that I nearly wept spontaneously upon entering...and I'm Jewish! Palazzo was ok, interesting but secondary. The Capella is not to be missed.
