CEFALÙ – THE CITY THAT OFFERS UNPRETENTIOUS CHARM

Situated on the northern Sicilian Coast, Cefalù is a commune of the Province of Palermo and is one of the most popular summer sea retreats in Italy as well as Europe.

Apart from the places of tourist interest, the city is also famous for unforgettable sunsets and self-effacing charm, coupled with a seamless amalgamation of all the ingredients that make a great Italian holiday at a seaside. With a series of sparkling beaches, and a picturesque landscape that has history very much entangled in every nook and cranny, Cefalù, with a rocky headland and ages of culture comes up as a crowning glory in the Italian culture and heritage. A decent transportation infrastructure, a vast range of Sicilian cuisines, and a somehow free flowing ambience collectively make the city one of the most sought-after sea resorts of Italy.

Muck unlike the other modern sea side resorts and fishing villages that have come up as tourist destinations in Italy over the last few decades, Cefalù has, to some extent clung back to its heritage and history and this has made all the difference. The tinge of history and the element of natural beauty have together made this city so special in all aspects.

The city has some impeccably maintained squares, streets, age old buildings and churches that make this medieval town as perfect as a picture postcard. The city is slow paced, and is a perfect pedestrian’s destination, and there lies the romanticism of exploring the city.

The main tourist attraction of the city is its beach that stretches along its length. Apart from the beach, other attractions in Cefalù include the Duomo of the city, which is a decent looking and imposing twin towered Normal Cathedral, which dominates the centro storico rooftops. The Cathedral is famous for its lovely Byzantine era mosaics, and a massive Christ Pantocrator.

Apart from the Cathedral, there are a number of other significant tourist attractions that include the Seminary and the Palace of the Bishop, the 15tyh Century Palazzo Atenasio Martino, which is famous for its 16th Century frescoes, Palazzo Maria, which was built in the 13th Century, and the 16th Century Palazzo Piraino, and a series of ancient public baths built by the Romans.

Cefalù can be reached by air, land and sea. The nearest airport is the international airport of Palermo, which is covered by flights from all over Italy and even from the UK. The city is also connected by Autostrada 20 as well as by railways. There is an urban bus service that comes up with transportation options within Cefalù, and some other intercity bus services that link Cefalù with adjoining cities and towns. There is a railway station, which is just a short distance away from the historic city centre and the beaches.

Just like the other towns and villages, the city is home to some of the best restaurants and hotels, bars and road side eateries that offer the best Italian and local cuisines and drinks.
