ShoreTrips says...

The layout of Cefalu has a unique integration of beaches and historic buildings which provides one of more memorable experiences in all of Sicily. The remarkable design of the famous Norman Cathedral gives the impression that you are entering a fortress that watches over the city.

From Palermo port, you are whisked away to the charming coastal town of Cefalù. Known for its massive Norman Cathedral and its picturesque seaside cliffs, this little town gives you a beautiful glimpse into life on the Sicilian coast. You’ll tour the Cathedral, which contains some of the best-preserved Byzantine mosaics in all the Mediterranean region!

Returning to Palermo, you’ll visit the charming Piazza Pretoria, a beautiful square with some wonderfully ornate fountains. Of course, no trip to Palermo would be complete without experiencing the “Four Corners.” This intersection is the traditional center of Palermo, and it perfectly captures the essence of this ancient city. Surrounded by 500-year-old baroque palaces left over from the heyday of Spanish rule, this intersection is one of the most famous in all Sicily.

After getting in some essential sightseeing, your guide will point you towards Palermo’s best shopping districts. Grab a cappuccino, eat some pizza, and stroll through its antiquated streets before returning to port.

See why Palermo was once known as the "City of Delights" before your return to the cruise ship pier.
