If you're naturally curious and a nature lover, you have no excuse .. Let yourself be guided along paths of great beauty for a day trip between the Peloritani and Nebrodi mountains.
The hike starts from the Rocche dell Argimusco plateau, amid gigantic varied shaped megaliths created by rain erosion and as dicovered in recent studies, shaped by man in pre-history. There are views of the Eolian islands, the Siclian Apennines ridges and the eastern slopes of the mighty Mount Etna. We'll then go to the Malabotta woods, a nature reserve that keeps unspoilt, part of the primitive leafy forest which covered most of Sicliy in ancient times. Finally, we'll visit the medieval village of Montalbano Elicona, which is listed as one of the most beautiful medieval villages in Italy.
