About this location
The Sicily region
Cefalù is situated on the northern coast of Sicily, just 65 km from Palermo. Cefalù is well known for both its natural and historical attractions. Indeed, it is possible to admire even today some of the most beautiful examples of the famed Arabic-Norman architectural style in Cefalù. The Cefalù Cathedral, the Mandralisca Museum, the Osterio Magno, and the Lavatoio Medievale are just a few of the splendid attractions of this scenic little town. The sands of Cefalù's beach are soft, but if one prefers a more rocky and dramatic shore, one need only walk around to the other side of La Rocca. Cefalù is also part of the Madonie Park, one of the biggest natural park areas in Sicily. The Madonie Mountains are perfect for trekking and hiking.
The climate in Sicily is subtropical. This means that even in wintertime one will never suffer the bitter cold. The "summer" starts in April and goes on until November. July and August are quite hot (30-35 degrees) and dry.
If one is keen to discover Sicily, Cefalù is the ideal place from which to begin. Palermo with its numerous historical buildings and one-of-a-kind markets is a mere sixty minutes away by train. On the way to Palermo one must surely stop in Bagheria to visit some of the city's baroque villas, and from there on to Solunto! Solunto is an ancient Graeco-Roman town that preserves the original layout of the village (streets, houses, the temple, etc.) along with hosting a breathtaking view. Taormina, Mount Etna, and Agrigento also must be seen! From Cefalú one can even easily reach the Aeolian Islands by ferryboat.
Coastal boat trips and scuba diving are activities really worth experiencing, trust us!
All these excursions and activities are conducted by the team at Solemar Sicilia, who will be there to assist whatever the need.
