Take a Trip to See the Charming Seaside Town of Cefalu, Sicily

After we left the French Riviera, our cruise ship sailed down to Tunisia in Africa. Due to high winds, the captain felt it unsafe to dock in the bay, therefore, we had to skip Tunisia, which was disappointing.

But, we set sail for our next destination Palermo, Sicily. There we toured the seaside village of Cefalu. Our tourguide said many times that they were Sicilian and NOT Italian.

We toured the village. I saw the sights, while Amanda got to shop. We both enjoyed Sicilian pizza and gellato before heading back to our ship.

After a 30 minute drive from Palermo, we arrived at the small seaside village of Cefalu
