Grand Hotel Timeo, Sicily, Italy


This charming, unspoilt village is a cluster of winding, narrow, medieval streets with delightful restaurants overlooking a rocky coast.

It is dominated by both a huge rock, La Rocca, which was once the site of a Temple of Diana, and by a splendid Norman cathedral.

The Duomo of Cefalù was built in 1131 by Roger II d’Hauteville and was intended as the principal religious seat in Sicily. Although it failed to fulfil its function, the magnificence of the building has never been eclipsed. Incorporating Arab and Byzantine architecture and artworks, it features fine mosaics, including an image of Christ Pantocrator, that draw visitors from far and wide.

Cefalù is about 2 hours from Taormina by car. Please contact our concierge to arrange your visit.
