Postcard from Cefalù, Sicily
This week I’m sharing the second photo-diary of our summer holidays in Sicily this late June and early July. If you missed the first part about Palermo, catch up now by reading the previous post.
Cefalù is a little seaside town about forty miles away along the coast from the capital, and you can easily reach it by train from the Stazione Centrale for 5 euros and under an hour. It’s small but perfectly formed, with its beautiful Normal Cathedral, the Duomo, nestled in the cliff face and towering over the charming old town of narrow streets, restaurants, artisan shops and cafes.
Whether lazing around on a sandy stretch of beach or diving in the sea from the high rocks is your thing, you can do both in Cefalù, which makes it a popular destination with holiday-goers of all ages and backgrounds. That’s why I would recommend visiting at the beginning or end of the summer rather than at the peak of high season, where it can get a little crowded. It was just about perfect when we went.
Should we take a closer look?
