We were staying not too far away from Cefalu. Visited it twice during our stay in Sicily. A charming little town with a promenade alongside the beach. There are things to see, - the old streets, the Cathedral square and the Cathedral itself, the old medieval wash-house to mention just a few. Easy to get to Palermo and there is... More

Nice, clean, waterfront, medieval fishing village. This is a good place to stop. Easy to see in a day. The duomo is a must see.

Lovely place to visit. Food is great and the beaches are great. Make sure you visit the Duomo and eat the fabulous gelato.

Pretty seaside strolling along the coast with some beaches. Great place for vistas and photo-taking. Some seafront dining.

We are not beach people, so Cefalu is certainly picturesque, but wasn't the highlight of all the towns we visited in Sicily. We luckily came in November, so avoided the summer crowds. The Duomo is impressive as are the cliffs overlooking the town. Take the time and walk the twisting streets as there are surprises around every corner. Good for... More

This was our very first time to Cefalu. It was my mother's dream to visit this place for a REALLY long time and this year in August, her wish came true thanks to our friends! The water was absolutely AMAZING to swim in: nice and deep after a bit, crystal clear and at the perfect temperature! There's also wonderful views... More

My cousins took my family and I here for the day, I must say these pictures do it no justice. It's one of the most beautiful places I have been to. I highly recommend it to everyone who loves beautiful scenery. My family and I were totally blown away. Enjoy your stay.

We had some of the best food we had ever eaten. Our hotel was o k , but their restaurant was a disaster, so we ate out a lot. Even a small pizza cafe we came across served properly made pizza & I think they were the best I had ever had.

After a day or so of exploring Cefalu and surrounding area a visitor whether foreign or Italian cannot imagine not making plans to return and continue enjoying the sea,the coast,the sites and,naturally,the food and wine!
