What Our Customers Say:
The service is good and quick. They had no diesel cars left, but we could choose from several gasoline cars. The only minus - too many scratches on all doors, roof ...2013-11-26Andrey
It was a little unclear at first after coming through passport control in the arrival hall, but found the rental place very quickly, bus service ok. Service was excellent, very friendly person, taking the time to explain the contract. I knew about the full tank of petrol, which I don't like, but have to accept. Also the insurance was explained. The car hire was very cheap so I wasn't expecting too much, the car had a few marks on it, but was in perfect working order. Tires could do with a renewal soon. The car was clean, radio working,so all in all I was happy.2013-11-26Marijke Phillips

A Quick Guide to... Cefalu
Cefalu is on the northern coast of Sicily in the province of Palermo and is 70km away from the capital with Messina 185km to the west. It is situated on the Tyrrhenian Sea and has become one of the main tourist attractions of Sicily. Although it is classed as a town it is more than capable of coping with the millions of tourists that arrive there every year.
The name Cefalu is of Greek origin and was first mentioned in 396 BC. By the 9th Century the town was conquered by Arabs and renamed Gafludi but a few centuries later the Normans took control. Throughout the middle ages there were a number of feudal families who ruled before it finally became under the rule of Italy in 1861.
The cathedral that was begun in the 1100?s has a well preserved exterior and there are also parts of the ancient city still can be viewed. The inside of the cathedral has been renovated and for other religious sites there is the church of St Stefano. By climbing up the staircase to the Salita Saraceno there are wonderful views of the town. It does however take half an hour but the views make it worthwhile. For art lovers there is the Osteria Magno which is a 14th Century mansion that has been altered over the years but is still impressive. It is used for temporary art exhibitions but if you want to view it when there is not an exhibition it is possible to get keys from the tourist office.
Travelling around Cefalu is easy and while there are plenty of taxis if you want to visit other areas there are car hire firms that will provide a rental car. As parking is either free or cheap, car hire in Cefalu will not cost a great deal. Arranging a car hire before you leave will be easy if you visit www.anycarhire.com as they will arrange the car you want at a price that compares favorably with other car rental firms.
