    Favorite thing: see the Arab/Norman churches. Cappella Palatina at Palazzo dei Normanni and San Giovanni degli Eremiti nearby (bus 109 to both) and the Mortorana near the centre.

    Fondest memory: Probably San Catoldo - next to la Mortorana - a complete contrast - very plain but movingly beautiful.
