Cefalu

Cefalu - a beautiful charming town with excellent sandy beaches

On the northern coast of Sicily sits Cefalù, famous for its beautiful sunsets, sandy beaches and winding medieval streets making for a very appealing blend of ingredients for a seaside holiday. In contrast to many modern beach resorts in Italy, Cefalú boasts a rich history.

The main pull for tourists is the sandy beach stretching alongside the town. It is very inviting, however during summer if you are looking for some peace and quiet then this is not the best place as it is usually packed during the the peak summer months. The Piazza del Duomo is a unique Norman Cathedral. Towering above the Duomo is the daunting granite crag called the Rocca. An ascent of the rock is well worth is for the fantastic panoramic views but it is not for the faint hearted, espcially in the heat of summer. 

An evening spent in Cefalú's picturesque habour is a very romantic spot, order some fresh fish with a bottle of wine whilst waiting for the sunset illuminating the port at night. One of the delights of the village is the Pasta Taianu, which is layers of pasta with meat, fried eggplant, pine nuts, raisin and pecorino cheese baked to melt in the mouth.

Directly south of Cefalù is the wonderful Madonie National Park with its charming villages and towns, such as Castelbuono, its delightful scenery, its impressive mountains and some wonderful walking.

Approximately 70km east of Palermo with its international airport, makes Cefalú probably the most visited part of Sicily behind Taormina and Palermo.
