From Palermo, some three dozen trains (tel. 892021; www.trenitalia.com) head east to Cefalù (trip time: 1 hr.). From Messina, about a dozen trains run daily, taking about 3 hours. Trains pull into the Stazione Termini, Piazza Stazione (tel. 892021). SAIS buses (tel. 091-6171141) run between Palermo and Cefalù (the trip is about 1 1/2 hours). By car, follow Route 113 east from Palermo to Cefalù; count on at least 1 1/2 hours of driving time (longer if traffic is bad). Once in Cefalù, park along either side of Via Roma for free, or pay 1€ per hour for a spot within one of the two lots signposted from the main street; both are within an easy walk of the town's medieval core.
The Cefalù Tourist Office, Corso Ruggero 77 (tel. 0921/421-050), is open Monday to Saturday 8am to 7:30pm, Sunday 9am to 1pm. It's closed on Sunday in winter.
