Making the most of the time available to visit a city is important. Cefalù has a medieval village with small, great treasures and one of the most beautiful coastlines in all of Sicily; so among the things to do in Cefalù you absolutely cannot miss a visit to the historic village and a boat tour along the coast of Cefalù. We recommend this unusual tour to join the historic center of one of the most visited cities in Sicily to a particularly suggestive and romantic moment, the sunset, where everything takes a different colour and rhythm, especially if you are at sea. Imagine the extraordinary photos you can take at this time of day, add a typical local aperitif on board with the captain and you won’t regret this choice. Let’s start from the historical centre of Cefalù. The old town of Cefalù is affected by Arab-Norman influences that give charm to the streets and monuments that you will see during your walk. Not to be missed is the Duomo, the 12th century Norman Cathedral declared a Unesco World Heritage Site in 2015: you can’t miss it, it is located in the central square of the village of Cefalù. According to a legend, the Cathedral was erected as a votive offering after King Roger II saved himself from a storm at sea. Also in the historical centre of Cefalù you will find the old washhouse: here women until not so long ago came to wash their clothes with water from the river Cefalino. It is said that these waters are very pure because they are the tears of a nymph in love, who repented after killing her beloved fed phragon. Finally, do not miss a look at the bastion of Capo Marchiafava, an ancient defensive construction that dominates the entire coast of Cefalù and, if you look towards the promontory, you will also see the Fortress of Cefalù, which houses the castle with its crenellated walls and the temple of Diana. Going back by boat for your excursion along the coast of Cefalù you can admire even better both the Bastion of Capo Marchiafava and the Fortress. After visiting the old town you can relax on the white beach of Cefalù, one of the most beautiful in Sicily: you can choose to snorkel in the transparent waters of the Cefalù coast with the equipment we have on board, or enjoy the time of sunset with the sun setting on the horizon creating a romantic atmosphere. Whatever your way of living Cefalù at sunset, don’t miss the light aperitif that will be served directly by the captain of the boat, before ending your boat tour and returning to the Port.
