Known for its long stretches of sandy beaches and ancient history, Cefalù is a prime holiday destination, especially popular amongst European travellers. The summer months are when the tourist season is at its peak. Visitors flock here to melt in the hot sunshine, enjoy Sicily’s famous cuisine, and marvel at some of the cultural attractions that this historic town has to offer. During your stay, take a moment to witness the Norman Cathedral, which dates back to the 12th century, as well as enjoy a walk around the old town, a picturesque area with narrow roads and charming shops. If you’re feeling adventurous, then there are some incredible views to be taken in from atop La Rocca, an enormous granite mass that towers above the town.

Location: On Sicily’s northern coast

Located within an hour’s drive from Palermo International Airport, Cefalù is a small town found on the northern coast, on the shores of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Trains operate from the airport to the town centre on an hourly schedule. The town is also accessible by car; however, it is advisable to contact your hotel beforehand to ask about parking.

Business: Fishing, tourism, and other services

Originally a small fishing village, Cefalù now maintains a tourism-dominated economy. A number of small shops, B&B’s, hotels, restaurants, and cafes keep this small town running, which peaks during the summer months, as well as a lively nightlife scene with clubs and bars, popular amongst the younger travellers in the area.

Culture: A rich medieval history

There is no shortage of cultural attractions to witness here! The most popular is the Duomo, a 12th century Norman Cathedral with beautiful architecture and a stunning interior of mosaics. The old town is also a particularly attractive area with narrow roads and charming shops. Here, you will also find the Museo Mandralisca, the town’s museum with artefacts dating back to the 4th century BC.

Activities: Head to the beach or get active

Activities in the area are endless. Although most visitors choose to spend the majority of their time lazing on the golden sand that the area is known for, there are other activities to take part in, especially water activities like windsurfing, snorkelling, and swimming. Those looking for an adventure should definitely climb La Rocca, the large crag that towers above the town and offers breathtaking views.
