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 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.
