Cefalu Visit in June 2006

A group of us be traveling on a Globus Tour of Italy and Sicily. Unfortunately the tour does not include Cefalu, a city that several members of our group have genealogical ties to and have contacted distant cousin there to visit. We are contemplating hiring a mini-bus while in Palermo that would provide us round-trip transportation to and from Cefalu for a 1 day trip. Can you any recommend a reputable company in Palermo that we could contact for this kind of service? Also, would it be possible to use the bus to tour the city itself? Appreciate any information you could provide.

Hello. I don't know about a mini-bus but you can get a train from Palermo centrale to Cefalu that takes only 45 minutes. It seems to be a regular service and will probably only be a few euros. Check out www.trenitalia.com

Definitely do NOT hier a car for getting round Palermo - it is madness! Taxis and buses will do the job.

Stay a night in Cefalu. We booked the Hotel Riva del Sole in Cefalu on the recommendation of a college friend of ours who imports French wines into California. The Riva del Sole lobby was spotless. You could eat off of the blue & white terrazo floor. Yet it is just accross the street from the beach, and a block west of the ancient part of the town.

We only stayed one night, but were put off schedule after we found my wife's grandfather's relatives in the small hill town of Sutera, just 40 minutes north of Agrigento's Valley of the Temples. Yes, her grandfather's brother's daughter and her cousins were still living in Sutera and were delighted we surprised them! The local baker spoke English and told us how to find the right "Nicasto" in the city records.

You can go back.
