Holiday in Capo d'Orlando
Capo d’Orlando offers no ancient ruins, medieval churches or Baroque palaces. Instead you will find a well-run town offering everything you could want for a longer stay in Sicily.
The town's popularity stems largely due to it's beautiful coastline that offers the most wonderful views of the Aeolian Islands on the horizon. As a popular destination for tourists from all over Italy and other parts of the world, Capo d'Orlando has much to offer it's visitors in the way of shopping, eating out, beach facilities, entertainment and a good choice and range of accommodation.
Excursions to Palermo, Etna and Messina are also recommended. A longer drive will take you to the Valley of the Temples at Agrigento and to Taormina.
From Capo d'Orlando we recommend the following excursions:
- Cefalù, where the old fortress and the Norman church dominate the town's profile and atmosphere
- The Aeolian Islands
- Naso 10 km from the coast
- The Nebrodi Mountains: The countryside of the Nebrodi Mountains consists of green meadows, shepherds' cottages and historical remains
- The old centre and the Greek theatre in Tindari
