this is our favourite place in Sicily so far. pretty streets, churches and piazza's. We took the train from Palermo and its an easy 50min journey...dont catch the slow one. We didnt do the Rock climb due to time, but we walked the rock path by the sea and it was simply lovely

Even though it was winter, the day was sunny enough for a nice walk along the beach and to explore the rocky coast of Cefalu. There weren't alot of people around due to the cold temperatures so we had time to just sit about the rocks and to enjoy the waves and sea scape.

We took a day trip (an easy train ride) from Palermo to get a break from the overwhelming city for a day, and Cefalu had come highly recommended by some family who have spent a lot of time in Sicily. We loved it - we enjoyed walking the streets, visiting the cathedral, and eventually came to the bastions on the... More

We spent a lovely afternoon in Cefalù. After visiting the glorious Cathedral beautifully situated in the Piazza under the looming Rocca, we couldn’t resist climbing the latter. As we ascended the panoramas over the town, coastline and sea became ever more spectacular. There were fine views of the geometrically shaped marinas with the scenic peninsular to the right. Back at... More

The water was perfect, and there were many fish to look at when snorkelling. The sea was also very warm.

Cefalu is just a delightful place to visit, and the beach and shoreline complements and compliments the environment. When we were there, a kite festival was taking place on the beach. We have never seen such impressive kites, and what a setting!. Obviously Cefalu wants to show off its assets, and the beach and shoreline are some of the best;... More

After coming back from Sicily, I am so pleased I made right decision to stay in Cefalu for few days rather than Palermo. Dont be wrong, lots people like the capital, but just I prefer little Italian towns and Cefalu is one of them. Touristy only means well developed for travellers which in Sicily is great thing. Easy to find... More

We drove from Agregento to Cefalu across the centre of Sicily. We had been disappointed with Southern Sicily due to the badly maintained infrastructure and the amount of trash just dumped by the road side. Once we saw the beach at Cefalu we knew that this is how towns and coastlines should be kept. The water is clean and clear,... More

We traveled from Civittavechia to the village of Cefalu, very nice views and the village or rather a town is also really nice, for sure a place to visit. Lost of shops, small bars and restaurants, For people with walking problems maybe a bit hard, as the sidewalks are not in good shape and it goes a lot up and... More

The coast of Cefalu is a wonderful place to relax and slowly stroll along either the Lungomare where the main beaches are, or alongside via Candeloro toward the light house, or 'Al Faro'. The lungomare stretches a good half mile from the city to the end. There are plenty of places to stop and sit while enjoying the site and... More
