La Rocca, Cefalu

4.5
The lookout point of La Rocca can be reached from the town's main street. Follow the street signs to the rock's path and the Tempio di Diana. Halfway up the path, you'll get a view of the town. Head farther up to the entrance of the temple's ruins. Pay a small fee to get into the archaeological site and take in the 360-degree view of the town. On the way to the temple, you'll pass other ruined buildings that stood before the Norman conquest in the 11th century.

    Traveling to Sicily, stopped for 6 days in Cefalù. La Rocca attracts and lures, and after reading the reviews, we decided to climb. Entrance from 9-00, the cost of 4 euro per person (girl at the cashier kindly wasting your banknotes for coins and sends for tickets in the state machine for local residents free entrance). The rise of the first pad-archaeological excavations is not generally heavy and perfect for any fitness level. Actually, it's the most interesting playground-walking in the shade of pine trees and doing photography. For the most desperate-climbing to the top of the Castle (which is practically nothing left). On heat pretty hard to climb, but go down even harder. While a lot of families with children of all ages-very funny to watch as a girl in headphones 7 years down, basking in their thoughts or teen years 13 sitting in the shade on a path leading to the Castle, and plays games on your phone))), and ancestors of the climb to the top.

    The struggling to make sense of infinite admirable pays off at the foot of what was once a fortress

    Steep climb! Good and solid shoes are recommended for this in some places steep climb. Not on the hottest of the day!
