A taste of... Cefalu gelato

Article content

14 August 2012 by Luke McCormick

Sicily's Sherbeth ice cream festival is once again set to take over the streets of Cefalu from 06-09 September.

During the festival it's possible to taste ice creams from 30 different ice cream shops in Sicily, with lots of different flavours available from the classic to some very peculiar ones like wine sorbet.

The medieval town of Cefalu is 75 kilometres from Palermo on the northern coast. It is built on ancient Sicanian and Greek settlements. All that remains today of these cultures is the Temple of Diana, built on a mountain overlooking the town. With its magnificent view of the town, cathedral, mountains and sea, it is well worth the climb.

September is a great time to visit Sicily. The island is generally quieter than in summer, yet the temperatures remain high. It's also at this time that the harvests begin, with grapes, pistachios, almonds and prickly pears, or fichi d'India, all being gathered.
