Sicily - Cefalù

On day 3, we visited a little town set on the northern coastline of the island. Cefalù was by far the most beautiful place we've visited during our stay in Sicily. The charming curvy alleyways, which date from the Roman time, led us down to the lovely sandy beaches and picturesque panorama of the seacoast. There were plenty of restaurants that serve delicious local seafood, many of which had a large outside terrace overlooking the rocks below, so that you could enjoy your dinner while staring at the clear turquoise sea. After walking along the Tyrrhenian sea, we planted ourselves on a wooden bench on Piazza Duomo, at the base of the central cathedral in Cefalù. Accompanied by an Italian sun flare and shaded by palm trees, we enjoyed trying different tastes of gelato (oh, the intensity of flavour!) from the tons of gelateria located there. Cefalù, a wonderful seaside town with magical scenery.

Sicily - Palermo

 Last month we've visited one of Italy's most alluring destinations, its gorgeous island Sicily. In the heart of the Mediterranean, this island has showed us its magical landscape, cosy little villages, and classical heritage reflected in the many architectural wonders. We stayed at a little village on the northern coast. It was half an hour away from the capital city Palermo, where the many Sicilian baroque buildings and churches are located. Our first day in Sicily was rather cloudy with some peaks of sun or brightening throughout the day. Luckily, in the following days the clouds have given way to clear blue skies and a bright shining sun. We spent two days exploring the culture, history and people of the capital city, and could have used a few more. During these days, we decided to walk through Palermo and simply see where our feet would bring us. We ended up seeing the many classic spots and places, such as the Norman palace walls, the baroque square Quattro Canti, the botanical gardens and the massive cathedral church of Palermo, surrounded by plenty of cafés and souvenir shops. Palermo's fascinating landmarks and sights are not to be missed when visiting Sicily.
