Private excursion carried out with the support of a cycle-guide and our minivan for the transfer to Monreale. From here, after visiting the Cathedral and the Cloister independently, the bicycle tour will begin, which includes a suggestive ride along the route of an old disused railway, through which you will climb up to reach Piana degli Albanesi.
