Cefalù

Quite unique and immediately recognizable, Cefalù, about 70 km from Palermo, is one of the most popular  villages on the North coast of Sicily, with very characteristic houses overlooking the Tyrrhenian. The town is a maze of alleys conducting to the beautiful ancient fishing port and, along the way, you can see some incredible sights, such as the Cathedral, a masterpiece of Norman architecture, and the church of Santo Stefano. Also, some remains of the ancient city are still visible and quite scenic if you are into old ruins. The Opera dei Pupi, the typical marionette theatre, is something to check out while in town, as are the town’s restaurants – but be prepared to gain a little weight, as everything is delicious around here!
