Cefalu is a commune in the Palermo city in Italy. It is notable for beautiful sunsets, unpretentious charm, and a very appealing blend of ingredients for an Italian seaside holiday. Sandy beaches, a picturesque historic town on a rocky headland, some high culture in the shape of a fine Norman cathedral, decent transport links, Sicilian food and sunshine all add up to make the town one of Italy’s most attractive seaside destinations.
Unlike the modern beach resorts and developed fishing villages which dot Italy’s coast, Cefalu has some grandeur in its past – it was important enough that one of Sicily’s Norman rulers, Roger II, would build a glorious cathedral here.
While its later history was less distinguished, there are some substantial and elegant buildings in the town, as well as reminders of Sicily’s varied influences, not just Norman and Byzantine, but also Arab, Spanish and finally Italian. Nowadays tourism is a big and profitable industry here, and the modern town spreads out along the coast from the centro storico.
Touring in and around this place would make an amazing experience while you are holidaying in Italy. It is suggested that you hire a car to take you around while you are out on a holiday in Italy. Cefalu is an eye fiesta and not worth giving a miss.
Renting a car would be a great idea for tourists who are on a holiday in various parts of Italy, to reach Cefalu. Car Rental Italy has an array of options to meet up to the commuting needs of the tourists, making their holiday a hasslefree one.
