In this day trip you will explore two wonderful cities located along the northern coast of Sicily, Tindari & Cefalu.
Our driver will pick you up from your accommodation at your most preferred time and drive you to Tindari. Tindari is a town of Greek origin and best known for its Sanctuary and the archaeological site of the ancient city. Inside the sanctuary you can see the statue of the “Black Madonna”, a wooden sculpture perhaps from Syria or Egypt, where it was carved around the 12th century. The centre of the town is around a large open square which is on the top of the cliff overlooking the sea: below the cliff is a long sandbank which reaches 1.5 kilometres into the sea and looks fabulous from the vantage point of Tindari. From the main square in Tindaris you can walk a few hundred meters to reach the Tindaris archaeological site.
After your free time in Tindari, we will reach Cefalù. Cefalù has a beautiful setting, at the foot of a towering rock halfway along the north coast of Sicily. The pretty little fishing harbor and old town streets are dominated by its Norman cathedral, one of the most interesting medieval buildings in Sicily. The Lungomare Giuseppe Giardina, Cefalù’s long beach, lies in a curve below the old town. Use it as the locals do, for a nice stroll, a place to sit on a bench and watch the sea roll in, or a place to sun and swim. Close to Piazza del Duomo, the Museo Mandralisca contains a wide range of collections covering archaeology, natural history, paintings, and decorative arts. In the art gallery, the highlight is the celebrated Portrait of a Man by Antonello da Messina, painted in 1465.
After your time in Cefalù, the driver will take you back to your accommodation.
