We got up early, packed our luggages, and said a last goodbye to our roof terrace.
We are ready to move to our next destination; Cefalu. To get there, we chose the slowest possible route; the mountain road, indeed!
Driving west just above of Etna on roads sometime barely larger than one car with 90 degrees turns. It’s fun with a small car. We followed the southern end of Nebrodi mountain range, it was never flat.
We reached Nicosia, a hilltop town, in the middle of Sicily where we stopped for a small visit.
Back on the road, we headed to our secret hiking spot, not far north from there.
A little too much off the beaten track according to Tina. Well, the access road on broken tiles to get to a pseudo parking in the middle of nowhere was not reassuring. It was a GPS track I found on Internet. Usually I get lucky. 🙂 Not only it was way too hot to hike this late in the day, but we were also blocked by closed fences with barbed wire and locks. We caught a few shots before continuing to Cefalu.
We still have over an hour drive to get to Cefalu through Nebrodi Mountain Range, half of which was under reconstruction. At least, the second half was nicer.
Once we crossed the mountains and reached the coast, we took the highway. It was going straight through tunnels and bridges to Cefalu. We took one exit before to explore the coast.
We are now setup in our huge “family” appartment in Cefalu. One of the 4 balconies is offering us a nice view on the city and the mountain above it.
