The book is a great guide and source of information for those visiting the Cathedral for the first time.
Instead, I found a fascinating look at the history of the Normans in Sicily and their reign over the island and its people. The text is supported by many beautiful photographs, most in color. There are so many wonderful details in these photographs, each with a caption detailing what you are seeing.
It gives you the story behind the mosaics and the cloister, the history of its construction, and includes beautiful photos of these magnificent works of art. I'm planning on purchasing more as gifts for family and friends who are planning on visiting this beautiful site.
The pictures are incredible. The author has a wonderful way of writing that makes the reader feel as if they are actually being taken on a guided tour. I have visited Monreale many times but this is the first time I have felt I really know the history behind the art. A great read for anyone who loves Italian art, architecture and history.
A must-have book for anyone interested in the Cathedral of Monreale.
A modest sample of the infinite treasures to be found in Florence. Great photography. Too many pages left almost totally blank..... could have been filled with more photos or historical quotes about Florence.
This is the most gorgeous book I have ever owned. In fact, my husband was also mesmerized. I am too excited to receive this copy.
After spending a few weeks in Florence for our honeymoon, this book brought back many memories. Gorgeous photos that make you want to visit the place again.
