The Cathedral of Cefalu is the town’s main draw, and began life in 1131. The exterior of the building is extremely well preserved, and is instantly recognisable due to its large matching towers that flank the front porch. Built in the Sicilian Romanesque style, the interior houses a respectable collection of Byzantine art.

There are a number of other churches to visit in the historic city, with the 16th Century pair of the Santa Maria dell’ Odigitria and the Santissima Annunziata just two of the fine examples of Baroque architecture. In terms of eating and drinking there are many small cafes and traditional restaurants to be discovered as you walk around the narrowing winding streets, where you will discover why gastronomy is an important part of Sicilian culture.

Those seeking to get away from the city will be pleased to discover that there are also many beaches just a short distance away. There are secluded sandy stretches and busy water sports beaches to choose from, as well as warm waters that are ideal for swimming in and a good range of shops and other tourist facilities.

Things to do in Cefalu, Italy

Located in Piazza del Duomo, Cefalu Cathedral is arguably the most important site in town, and dates back to 1131. It has a fortress-like appearance and dominates the local landscape – being visible from miles around. As well as being impressive architecturally, the cathedral will also be of interest to art lovers, as its interior is almost entirely decorated in lavish artwork and religious paintings. A number of ancient churches and palaces can also be seen around town, and attractions such as these can easily fill a day or two of your holiday.

A Cefalu villa can also be used for a relaxing holiday of doing very little at all. With the weather almost always warm and the sun almost always shining, sitting outside and enjoying a meal or drink can be enjoyed until well into the evening and throughout much of the year. A good selection of restaurants, cafes, pizzerias, supermarkets and shops can be found around the town centre, and Cefalu generally looks after self-catering tourists very well. Cefalu also has a public beach – perfect for more relaxation.

Cefalu is on the fringes of a regional park, so can also be a great destination for those looking for hiking, wildlife-spotting and mountain climbing opportunities. You may also choose to hop in the hire car and visit some of the other towns and villages of the Palermo region, with Palermo itself less than an hour’s drive away.

Weather in Cefalu, Italy

The blissful Sicilian weather is one of the main reasons why Cefalu is such a popular destination with foreign visitors, as it allows them to escape the uncertain summers and cold winters of the UK, and land in 30C plus temperatures and days of beautiful sunshine. Though temperatures drop outside of peak season, they are still mild in winter – and certainly warmer than those in Britain at that time of year!

Flights to Cefalu, Italy

Cefalu is exactly 100km from Palermo Airport (PMO), and an enjoyable scenic drive can be had between the two destinations. At time of writing the airport only receives flights from the UK through budget airlines Ryanair and easyJet, but this remains a far preferable option to flying to Catania (CTA) and having to undertake a laborious two hour drive to your holiday rental villa or apartment.

The view is really outstanding! The owner Christiane is very kind and helpful and is always contactable. We had a perfect holiday!

Fourth bedroom is little bit small, suits for children more. There is all cutlery you could imagine in the kitchen. Beautiful front and back yard. Definitely need a car. There are couple local supermarkets near this villa. Beach is with rocks, not a lot of sand. This is really fantastic villa for the good amount of money. Highly recommended for everybody!

Both bedrooms were of ample size for my sister and I, and the bathroom was lovely. We had a minor hot water problem, but Luigi was there within 10 minutes to fix it. Very covenient for the supermarket, just across the road, but also for the beach, station and old town. Will definitely stay here again
