Cefalù, with its population of just under 14,000 inhabitants, is one of the major tourist sites in Sicily: in fact, despite its size, every year it attracts tourists in such a number that the population can triple.
For this guided tour we will pick you up from your hotel or b&b with one of our vehicles: with a minimum of 3 people the vehicle is a luxury Mercedes-Benz 4x4 or a comfortable minivan! We head firstly towards Palermo's eastern coastline and then enter the motorway: after about an hour we arrive in Cefalù. The old city is simply lovely: narrow and clean streets with lovely shops, restaurants and pubs. We stroll around the Medieval neighbourhoods, watch the beautiful city coastline from the pier, have a coffee at the main square in front of the majestic Cathedral... then it is high time we entered it! The Cefalù Cathedral, built from 1131, according to the tradition was erected after a vow made to the Holy Saviour by the King of Sicily, Roger II, after he had escaped from a storm to land on the city's beach.
