Resort Information

Set between the toe of Italy and Africa, Sicily has been influenced by many cultures. It's also a place of breathtaking natural beauty. Picturesque resorts and beaches dot the coast, while, inland, quaint hill-towns cling to volcanic slopes, and a wealth of ancient monuments awaits discovery.

Cefalu

Forty-five minutes from the Sicilian capital Palermo, and boasting a superb, sandy beach, Cefalu is part fishing port and part welcoming resort. Shops, restaurants and cafes line the streets surrounding the 12th-century cathedral, and the town is dominated by a towering rocky outcrop, 'la Rocca'.

Further Information

Wining and dining

Sicilian cuisine is fascinating and diverse, combining Greek, Arab and Spanish textures with traditional Italian flavours. Try traditional appetisers panelle and arancini; and experience a range of fish dishes such as swordfish, and sardines in a rich tomato sauce. For dessert, Sicilian ice cream is famous - and don't miss scumuni, a particularly tasty delicacy, or the island's delicious wines.

Mount Etna excursions

These tours take in the extinct craters at Monte Silvestri, at 1800 metres. Should you wish to climb further - to 2,600 metres - by cable-car and off-road vehicle, a supplementary charge is payable locally.

Entrance fees

Some of the attractions visited on our excursions offer free admission to visitors aged under 18 or over 65, therefore we do not include entrance fees within the excursion's price. If appropriate, these will be payable locally.

Transfer Times

The transfer time to Cefalu from Catania Airport is approximately two hours and 15 minutes, and from Palermo Airport it is approximately one hour.
