La Rocca, Cefalu
(4.5/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
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. Put La Rocca on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Cefalu travel itinerary maker.
