To know more about your boat trip...

Visited every year by thousands of tourists and a must-see destination of Sicily, Cefalù has maintained the charm of the typical medieval Italian village, son of the Arab-Norman culture, with its narrow streets, restaurants, small shops and ice cream parlours where you can enjoy an excellent Sicilian ice cream. The central square of the village of Cefalù is dominated by the Duomo, a Norman cathedral of the 12th century declared UNESCO heritage site in 2015: legend has it that it was built by King Ruggero II as a vow, after being saved from a storm at sea. A second attraction of the historical center of Cefalù is the ancient Lavatoio, a medieval wash-house hosting a number of ancient basins, fed by the Cefalino river that flows out from twenty-two iron lion-shaped mouths: the waters of the river are considered extremely pure because, according to the legend, they are the tears shed by a nymph after she killed the man that cheated on her. Until recently the wash-house was still used by the local women. Another particularly fascinating attraction, especially from the sea perspective, is the Bastione di Capo Marchiafava, an ancient defensive building that dominates the whole coast of Cefalù, from east to west. Finally La Rocca di Cefalù: a little difficult to reach on foot, La Rocca protects the castle with its walls and the temple of Diana: from the sea you can admire all the majesty of La Rocca and take wonderful photos!


If you are in Palermo, don’t miss an excursion to Cefalù: discover its medieval village and its beaches and you will not regret this decision! Cefalù is 58 km far away from Palermo, you can reach Cefalù by bus directly from the airport or by train from the centre of Palermo: it will take about one hour with both solutions.

      3 Hour Cefalù Coastal trip

      Thanks so much Alex, what a fun & relaxed trip. We had such a great time on the boat with you yesterday. Great that we could use your snorkeling masks and thanks for the homemade snacks you made and local wine as we sunbathed on the front, so tasty! You were very knowledgeable about the history of the coast, super interesting. Highly recommend to other travelers to Cefalù
