Hotels in Cefalu

Cefalú is one of the most popular destinations on Sicily. It sits along the northern coastline, more of a community than a town proper. After Taormina and Palermo, Cefalú is the third most popular among tourists who come here seeking a sun-soaked seaside holiday.

Experience Cefalú and Sicily

Watching the sunset from the water's edge is a memorable experience here. The town's own attractive sights formed the backdrop for the 1988 movie Cinema Paradiso. The sandy, pristine beach attracts lots of sunbathers and holidaymakers when the weather is warm.

The cathedral, Duomo de Cefalú, dates back to the 12th century. It was built following the Norman occupation of the town in 1091. Keep in mind that the cathedral is usually closed at lunchtimes. Another must-see is the Museo Mandralisca, a museum of art and archaeological relics collected by Baron Enrico Piraino of Mandralisca.

From the town, it's roughly an hour's drive to Palermo. It has a busier atmosphere and lots of things to see and do. The long history and changing rule of Palermo can be seen in the ‘mix and match' architecture around the town.

Food and drink

Sicilian cuisine uses plenty of spices, sugar and fruits, fish, seafood, nuts and vegetables. The region is also well known for its wine and olive oil. Antipasti – traditional starters such as cured meats, anchovies and mushrooms – are the first course in the vast majority of Sicilian restaurants.

The influences from other countries can be seen in the Greek and French restaurants at Cefalú. You may also find the fusion of both – unusually, Le Chat Noir has calamari on the menu.

Shopping and souvenirs

Shops line the town's medieval, winding streets. The Corso Ruggero area has most of the stylish fashion outlets, and there are more on the Via Vittorio Emanuele. A bank, pharmacy and petrol station can also be found in this area of town.

As an authentic souvenir of your time in Cefalú, pick up some locally made ceramics. A Lumera di Brocato is one of the largest ceramics shops, providing ornaments, vases, tables, window boxes and more.
