from PALERMO with local guide Mimmo: A Piece of Authentic Sicily
This trip takes you out of the city, driving east on the north coast, on a beautiful private tour to CEFALU', a medieval town full of charm. This lovely area is part of the regional park of the Madonie. The sturdy Norman lines of Cefalù's Cathedral, 12th century Arab-Norman monument (World Heritage Site), are softened by palm trees, and tourist's shirts are filling the city hall piazza before it. Continue to a typical Sicilian village inside the beautiful regional park in the Madonie Mountains. And don't miss a meal based on typical local specialities (recommended for Foodies).
For up to 6 travelers upon request
Drive (1. 5h) towards the Madonie Regional Natural Park till charming Cefalù, a former fisherman's village with its ancient seaside houses. During a stroll trough the characteristic streets, we'll visit the medieval washhouse and the Norman-style Cefalu Cathedral, built in the 12th century. The mosaics inside the cathedral are remarkable examples of the Byzantine art of the period.
Continue to a small Sicilian village, a picturesque medieval village, a postcard-perfect town located inside the beautiful regional park of the Madonie. This area gives you a glimpse of an alternative Sicily, away from the coast and set amidst an idyllic rural landscape of hilltop villages and green parkland.
Finally savor a special meal (optional) based on typical local specialities in a Agriturismo (recommended).
