"Cefalu, Sicily" Cefalú by Rob&Giz
Cefalú Travel Guide: 105 reviews and 407 photos
A lovely village about 70 km east of Palermo, with a nice center of narrow streets at the foot of "La Rocca".
It takes about an hour to hike up to the top of La Rocca. At the first gate you'll need to pay an entrance fee and then you can continue to hike up to the top. As you pass the Temple of Diana there's not much to see, you can continue to zigzag your way up to the top. Walking around the top you will have a beautiful view over Cefalu on one side and the harbour and the Kalura peninsula on the other side. Make sure you go early in the morning as it can get very hot, and bring a bottle of water with you!
- Pros:Pretty quiet, no mass tourism, the sea, the food.
- Cons:To travel inland you need to hire transportation.
- In a nutshell:A place to charge your battery
From Cefalu you can take a train to Palermo which takes around 50 minutes. We recommend that you take the 'domestic'... more travel advice
If you get the chance it's well worth it to take a trip to the Etna Volcano. From the parking lot take the cable car... more travel advice
