The Sicily region
Sicily (Sicilia) is the largest Mediterranean island, and is situated at the foot of Italy near the Northern coast of Africa. It is a volcanic island with Mount Etna, Europe's highest and most active volcano near Catania in the north east of the island.
There are hundreds of beautiful beaches where sea of all different shades of blue glisten onto shores of white pebbles and sands.
Sicily is an island full of tradition, history , good food and wine.
It is the biggest island in the Mediterranean, separated from the Italian peninsula by the strait of Messina. It has important mountain groups: Peloritani, Nebrodi, Madonie, Iblei. The plains are scanty, with the exception of the area around Catania. The coasts offer a landscape of fascinating beauty almost everywhere; groups of marvellous smaller islands are scattered round the coast (the Eolie or Lipari, Ustica, the Egadi. the isle of Pantelleria and the Pelagie). The Etna, rising in the centre of a volcanic area of Sicily, is the highest active volcano in Europe (3,323 meters). The isles of Stromboli and Vulcano are also active volcanoes.
Cities: Palermo , Messina, Catania, Agrigento, Syracuse, Trapani, Ragusa, Enna, Caltanissetta
The small town Cefalù is located 70km east of Palermo and is really worth a visit! Cefalù is a picturesque fishing village that enjoys a splendid position between the sea and a rocky promontory.
The town is divided in two parts; an old part that is mainly for pedestrians and has many nice little boutiques, and a new modern part with supermarkets, gas stations and car rentals. Corso Ruggero is the main street in the old town centre, and it has many different shops and in cross-streets you will find many good restaurants.
The old town centre is dominated by the cathedral and the Rock rising in the background.
Today Cefalù has a population of 14,000, but in the summer months this number is more than doubled. Cefalù has become incredibly popular in recent years; the town is fascinating and many tourists that come once choose to come back.
There is a very nice night-life in Cefalu as there are 5 well known cocktail bars and there is a very popular disco club.
Restaurants have a lot to offer as there are many types of restaurants offering either local kitchen or typical italian cuisine.
There are also many things to see in Cefalu, including the local and the nearby museums, the cathedral, the washing place (il lavatoio), the Osterio Magno, the Temple of Diana, the Castle, the sanctuary of Gibilmanna and the Bordonaro Castle.
The motorway gives you easy access to Palermo, Monreale and the Roman remains at Solunto. Slightly further afield, the Ancient Greek remains at Segesta (west past Palermo) and Tindari (east along the coast) are well worth day trips.
