Cappella Palatina is something you do not want to miss in Palermo, even it is the only thing you'll see, it's well worth the visit. Probably one of the most beautiful church in the world. Do expect some queue in touristic season. 12€ well spent...More

If you are in Palermo that's a must see! Go and visit both, the Palace and the Capella. The tour will take you around 2 hours. We had to queue at the Capella for around 25 minutes.

Do not miss the Palatine Chapel. Take binoculars to see the incredible detail of these amazing mosaics. Also look down at the floors and at the sculptural details.Amazing jewel box of a chapel. Also do not miss Roger II's "bedroom" with charming, unique animal mosaics.

Relatively interesting Sicilian palace. The Capella is beautiful and worth a visit. The palazzo and royal apartments are good, however I did not feel this was worth the €12 entrance fee. Took around 1 hour to visit, when compared to other Sicilian sights such as...More

Not too expensive to get in and does cater for English speaking visitors. There can be a bit of a wait to get in but worth it.
