We visited Cefalu in February, 2015 on a shore excursion on a cruise stop in Palermo. It is about an hour ride from Palermo. Truly worth the ride. It is a very charming quaint fishing village. It was pouring rain when we went but it...More

We stayed on the Cefalu Sea Palace which is has its own stretch of breath opposite the hotel and it's own swimming pool. Just a short walk into the town.
Is there any public transportation from Palermo to Cefalu? Or is renting a car required to get there?
