Discover the Medieval beauties of Cefalù-half day tour


We will set off from Palermo and after taking the scenic motorway along the coast, we will arrive in the charming Cefalù. Cefalù derives its Greek name"Kephalé", headland, from the shape of the circular promontory where the ancient Greek colony was founded in the 4th Century B. C. This typical fishing town managed to preserve the old architecture especially from the Middle Ages. Upon arrival, you will stroll around the narrow streets, enjoying the old houses that feature nice courtyards in a very Moorish style. We will visit the famous Cathedral built in 1131 by the Norman king Roger II. This beautiful monument is decorated with precious Byzantine mosaics that entirely cover the main apse. You will also visit the typical public wash place, where until a few years ago women used to wash their clothes. You will enjoy a little free time not only for shopping but also for admiring the long sandy beach

A Recent Review of this tour

We were absolutely pleased with the tour of Cefalu with Josie. She is extremely knowledgeable of the area and culture. Josie went out of her way to make accommodations to find information about my mother's family at the government offices. She was an outstanding guide and we would recommend her to everyone wanting a great experience in Sicily.
