Cefalu is far from being the biggest city in Sicily. Yet it is a veritable hotspot as far as the tourism industry is concerned. You’ll find it in a coastal position (part of its charm no doubt) around halfway along the northern coastline of Sicily. It is a short distance to the north of the SS113, the main road that runs along the northern stretch of coast. Look to the west on a map and you’ll see Palermo, the capital of the island as a whole. Head along the coast to the east meanwhile and you will come across such destinations as Cap D’orlando, Milazzo and eventually Messina. While the latter would be a little too far to go on a day trip out of Cefalu, it does give you an idea of where Cefalu itself is located.
