Last stop in Sicily: Cefalu

Greetings from Cefalu, Sicily. Cefalu is a beautiful town on the North coast of Sicily, just East of Palermo.

I ended up staying at a monastery here and it was a great experience. I usually enjoy a quiet stay at a monastery once in a while and this fit the bill perfectly. The ladies were very friendly and interested in my travels (though I frustrated them a bit I think because I couldn’t understand all of their questions ;)) I had a room with a beautiful view of the sea and Aeolian islands.

Cefalu is pretty touristy with the main emphasis on shopping. However, one can bypass this fairly easily. There is a huge “rock” (mountain) on the edge of town called “La Rocca”. It is a nice climb to the top with a smattering of rewards along the way in the form of ancient ruins – fortress walls, homes, a castle, and a church, among other things.

A quick tour of this sweet spot, and I’m off to Palermo in the morning and a short flight to Cagliari, Sardinia.

Ciao for now..
