Cefalu is our first stop in Sicily. It is a very photogenic seaside resort which has an old town and a towering hill complete with Castillo and old archeological ruins. The hill, called La Rocca, provided us with a steep morning walk and spectacular views. In fact, Etna and its snowy peak could be seen in the distance along with the Aeolian islands which will be out next stop. Despite the distant snow it is quite hot and I enjoyed a swim in the crisp and clear ocean this afternoon. Other tourists are spending the day baking their already burnt red skins.
I have managed to avoid the gelato today but it sure is tempting! We lunched on local bread filled with sweet cherry tomatoes.
