“Bellissima, specialmente adesso che permette il tour delle torri con vista di Cefalù e della chiesa dall'interno. Imperdibile per chiunque si trovi a Cefalù.”
Antonella P.
“If you spend a day or two in Cefalu the dome has to be on your list anyway. City was build around this place and it just fits in terms of architecture. Great to see, include the walk up the tower.”
Joerg F.
