Cefalu

Cefalu is a lovely small medieval town situated on the north coast of Sicily about 80 kilometres east of Palermo. Characteristic for the town is the rock, 'la Rocca di Cefalu'. On the top of the rock you will find the small 'Temple of Diana' dating back to ancient times.

In the centre of the city you will find the impressive cathedral dating back from 1200 with a number of very beautiful and well preserved mosaics. In front of the cathedral there is a big square with a number of cosy terraces. In the bay of Cefalu, but also in the direct surroundings there are long beautiful sandy beaches, something that is not obvious in the Mediterranean. The water is crystal clear so bring your snorkel set.

Due to its central position Cefalu is the perfect base from which the many sights on the island can be visited easily.
