On the northern coast, 75 kilometres east of Palermo, lies Cefalù a medieval town built on the site of an ancient Sicanian and Greek settlement. All that remains of these ancient cultures today is a small structure, the Temple of Diana, on the mountain overlooking the town. With its magnificent view of the town, cathedral, mountains and sea, it is well worth the climb. And from the 15th to 18th September 2011 Cefalù will celebrate its own Ice Cream Festival (Sherberth Festival – Festival Internazionale del Gelato a Cefalù). Along the main street its possible to taste ice creams made by 30 different ice cream shops in Sicily, with lots of different flavours from the classic to some more peculiar ones such as wine sorbet.
