Sicilian Countryside Day Trip from Cefalu Including Lunch
Enjoy a change of scenery on this day trip from the Tyrrhenian coastal town of Cefalu, just east of Palermo, to the rugged Madonie mountain countryside. Experience the rural lifestyle of northern Sicily as you explore medieval villages, admire the idyllic green hills of Madonie Regional Natural Park and visit a dairy farm for a fresh ricotta cheese tasting. End with a traditional Sicilian lunch in the fresh mountain air.

After a pickup from select Cefalu hotels or a nearby location by coach, start your full-day tour with a drive inland to Collesano, a charming medieval village at the base of the Madonie mountains, dominated by the Basilica di San Pietro and the weathered remains of a nearby Norman castle. Visit the basilica with your guide and enjoy free time to explore and grab some coffee or a bite to eat (own expense).

Continue through Madonie Regional Natural Park to Piano Battaglia, a popular winter resort, and hop out for a refreshing nature walk. Next, visit a local dairy farm to see the traditional way of making Sicilian cheese. Enjoy a tasting of the farm\'s fresh ricotta, paired with chunks of fresh bread.

Follow your cheese tasting with a journey to the lovely Sicilian village of Polizzi Generosa. Enjoy a walk around the historical center with your guide, and then make the most of some free time to explore independently.

Once you?ve worked up an appetite, head to a local farm to enjoy a lunch of traditional Sicilian specialties with wine. See Itinerary for a sample menu. After lunch, relax on your journey back to your Cefalu hotel.
