Today you are greeted at Palermo hotel and after 1 hour driving on highway with suggestive sea view you will travel for around 30 minutes on curvy roads up to reach Catelbuono, a charming locality in an attractive wooded location at 500 mt. above sea level, that belongs to the protected reserve “Madonie Mountains Park”. Castelbuono (literally “good castle”) has vestiges of medieval architecture. Visit the village and stop at one of the typical bar to taste a pastry made with Sicilian “manna”.
Lunch will be served in a Winery located in Castelbuono area in a wonderful building that once was an Abbey. Lunch includes a mix of starters with cheeses, salumi and vegetables, pasta and a tasting of several wines.
Then travel to Cefalù, a gorgeoius town located on the northern coast of Sicily and one of the major tourist attractions in the region. Built on a promontory dominated by a sheer cliff, Cefalù, still keeping its ancient print, has grown around the Cathedral wanted by Ruggero II. The Cathedral, began in 1131, is one of the most interesting medieval monuments of the island and boasts outstanding mosaics and a wonderful cloister. A large part of the town is pedestrian. Stroll through the medieval narrow street and admire the picturesque houses on the sea and the long beach of finest sand.
Later return to the hotel.
