This trip takes you out of the city. Driving east on the north coast, on a beautiful private shore excursion to Cefalu. A medieval town full of charm. This lovely area is part of the regional park of the Madonie.
Cefalu’s Cathedral is a 12th century Arab-Norman monument (World Heritage Site). Palm trees soften the sturdy Norman lines. And tourist’s shirts are filling the city hall piazza before it. The two towers of the wonderful old cathedral stand high over the roofs of the town. And above all the great rock, the Rocca. Dominating all in the apse is the great golden mosaic of the Christ Pantocrator. It has often been described as unsurpassed by any other representation of Christ.
Food Experience in a lovely location which is part of the beautiful regional park of the Madonie
Starting from Palermo. Head to the Madonie Regional Natural Park and the town of CEFALU’. A charming former fisherman’s village with its ancient seaside houses. During a stroll trough the characteristic streets, we’ll visit the medieval washhouse and the Norman-style Cefalu Cathedral, built in the 12th century. The mosaics inside the cathedral are remarkable examples of the Byzantine art of the period. We’ll have time for a cappuccino or a gelato.
Continue to a small Sicilian village located inside the beautiful regional park in the Madonie Mountains. This area gives you a glimpse of an alternative Sicily, away from the coast and set amidst an idyllic rural landscape of hilltop villages and green parkland. Many of these towns have Medieval origins thanks to the noble land-owning families that owned huge estates and built castles in the area. Finally savor the Food Experience, a meal based on typical local organic specialities.
