Cefalu, where we landed on Friday – peacefully and smoothly! - was our first port of call in Sicily. 581 Our ship off Cefalu

Sicilian architecture clearly shows the influence of the Arabic people who came from North Africa in 831, as well as the later Norman invasion under King Roger – now there’s a name right out of Monty Python!
