Monreale is a town just outside Palermo, reachable with the local city buses. In Monreale there is a Duomo with a veritable orgy in mosaics, pictures on that later (not in the fast track). This picture is from the roof of the church where you have a nice view over the cloister next to the church and with the mountains in the background.

The day started with grey skies in Palermo, and it was raining at lunchtime. But it cleared up, and when I was in Monreale it was sunshine. (But later in the evening, it was raining again.)
