  • The ticket price of 12 euro doubts before joining but once you enter the chapel inside the Royal Palace and I must say that the beauty of the mosaics and frescoes does not regret spending.

  • The Palatine Chapel in the palazzo dei normanni, Golden mosaics. Beautiful original cab placed at the foot of the stairs

  • It is true that in addition to the Palatine Chapel the Palazzo dei Normanni does not offer significant attractions, but the visit to the small and extraordinary chapel far outweigh the price of €8.5. It should take into account that the Sunday visiting hours are more limited. A part of the building is the seat of the regional Parliament.

  • Only a star because due to poor organization of the municipality we could not get. Sundays closed at noon, absurd since there was a line of over one hundred people who wanted to enter. The usual Italian organization.
