We went to La Rocca at 5 pm in early August. They do not give back change at the entrance, so make sure you bring the exact amount of the entrance fee (4 € per person). The climb up to the level where the cross...More
The first time we went here there had been heavy rain and the site was closed as the paths can be unsafe, 2nd time lucky - worth the entry fee (rather confusing where to pay). Pick a good day weather wise as the views are...More
La Rocca broods mightily over the medieval town of Cefalu. A climb to the top, allow around an hour if you are reasonably fit, reveals interesting archaeological remains and fortifications from ancient through medieval times. Views over the town and across the bay are impressive...More
Great hike for our family - three generations did the full hike in an hour. We went all the way to the top, took pictures at the castle and enjoyed the views from all angles. Went down to the Temple of Diana and to enjoy...More
Always uphill with great views getting better and better as you walk ever upwards.
From the top you can see both sides of Cefalu, the tourist town and the marina.
Worthwhile but choose a cool day or early morning.
The climb is doable for anyone in half decent shape. We saw young families as well as older people up at the summit. We arrived at about 9:30am and in between the climb up, walking around the sites and the walk down we were about...More

As best I recall, there are small signs up from Piazza Garibaldi, or a block north at Via Carbonari. My pics show a staired road up to a pleasant side street which leads to the hike entrance. Very easy, short little up from... More
As best I recall, there are small signs up from Piazza Garibaldi, or a block north at Via Carbonari. My pics show a staired road up to a pleasant side street which leads to the hike entrance. Very easy, short little up from the main street to the start. Nice mini gardens and flower boxes. Enjoy !
