“You may have the universe if I may have Italy” This is one of my favourite quotes by Giuseppe Verdi. Invite me to go to Italy anytime and I will say YES! Even if it’s to go to places, I have been already. I am so in love with this country, the culture, the people, the language, the food… The truth is Italy will always be a great destination for holidays. It is the perfect place to slow down and enjoy life.
The spirit of Italy has taken over my soul. It’s my ideal of paradise.
While we were in Cefalú, my sister and I took sometime to visit Cefalú Beach which is another dreamy location not to be missed if you are in Sicily. Lungomare is the main sandy beach in Cefalú, it’s a long and lovely beach with clean, golden sand, without doubt one of the best in Sicily. And it’s very easy to get to, just a short walk from the main road leading through town. It gets very crowded in the summer months, but not as busy as the beaches near Taormina.
Another interesting fact is that The Oscar-winning film Cinema Paradiso was shot in Cefalù. There is something very special about this old fishing village with slower pace of life that recalls an older and gentler time.
On this day I chose to wear this long flowy dress by H&M from the Conscious Collection and the jelly sandals are by Michael Kors. I loved this orange colour and thought it would make a perfect beach dress for holidays. Hope you enjoy the pics!
