Palermo
The capital city of Sicily with 1 million inhabitants, a city of contrasts with a strong and unique personality. First-time visitors are captivated by the mixture and abundance of its history, culture and art - Romanic, Gothic, Baroque churches, Norman palaces, Liberty villas and one of the best theatres in the world (Teatro Massimo), are only some of the jewels that Palermo has to offer. Only a few kilometres away from the centre, you can easily step into a more natural and rural aspect, discovering its mountain sides hugging the splendid city port, or enjoying the relaxing seaside in the village of Mondello, with its unique clear water and white sandy beach, popular as late as November. Night life in Palermo is equally vibrant with an unlimited choice of restaurants, pizzeria, pubs and night-clubs with live music and exciting entertainment.

Cefalu
The picturesque city of Cefalu is about 50 minutes’ drive from Palermo. This harbour town attracts millions of tourists every year from all over Europe. Cefalu’s enviable location has plenty to offer; surrounded by mountains and situated within the Madonie National Park, it is considered to be one of the most beautiful areas in Italy. Within the relatively modern town, it is possible to see some echoes of the ancient city, with little narrow cobbled streets and the remains of a palace. Overlooking the town are the majestic two-towered Norman Cathedral and extensive remains of the Saracen castle on the promontory facing the Mediterranean.

Menfi
About one hour’s drive from Palermo, Menfi lies between its gentle hill tops, covered in vineyards, and the extensive gold sandy beach of Porto Palo still unspoiled and blessed by clear and crystalline waters – retaining every year its Blue Flag status (which recognises high-standard beaches). Menfi is famous for its agricultural products and most of all for its wine, exporting famous labels such as ‘Planeta’ all over the world. Many connoisseur visitors are attracted to this place of authentic gastronomy and traditional way of life. In recent years Menfi has also developed as the perfect area for many exhibitions and cultural events.
