    On our third day in Palermo, we decided to hike up Monte Pellegrino in order to both catch the stunning views but also gain a sense of historical context of this staggeringly beautiful mountain which you see from almost all main streets of the city. Since the bus seemed to have a bad rep (and we were also looking forward to a hike), we decided to walk instead of taking the bus/catching a cab. In the morning of our climb, we received a MeteoAlarm that Sicily was about to reach extreme temperatures so we brought some extra water. We climbed the mountain’s cobble stone path in 1 hour and 45 minutes (while seeking refugee in each strand of shade). We only saw one other company during our entire ascension. Near the top, we were meet with a small square with various cafees and the Rosalia chapel. When we continued onwards on asphalt roads (for an additional kilometre), we finally reached the end of the road which offered a beautiful 360 degrees view of the bay of Palermo and the surrounding beach/coastal towns. On our way down, we grabbed a Granite and caught a bus down to the city centre again

    We are quite fit and it was a great workout but we do advice anyone climbing in the July heat to bring some sun protection and an extra bottle of water! You will be rewarded with beautiful views, cacti and some cute lizards on the way up.

    Terrasini is a smal, so it takes only a few minutes to drive through the town down to the waterfront. Take the time to appreciate the views.

    Amazing place with fantastic geology. I walked from the center of milazzo along the main road. Long walk but very enjoyable. Had I driven I would have found plenty of free parking.

    A real fishing port not JUST for tourists. A stroll full of interesting architecture and history. Some good eating places.

    I had always wanted to drive the TF Racecourse. Here from the UK having driven via Genoa and the overnight ferry to Palermo in my Morgan +8. Tackled the Piccolo in an anti-clockwise direction as raced in the day. Loved it. However, the road in several places is in a really poor state so beware

    No denying, it's an experience whether you going over it on the SS115, or under it, say en route via SP54 to Scicli. There's a limit to what you can see when in an average sized car, but even so you sense 'the experience' on this, Sicily's highest bridge. Another approach is to view from a distance, say from near Modica's market along the via Fiumara. There again, you could get an aerial view by watching the opening credits of Montalbano!

    If you want to have a wonderful horseback riding experience in the wonderful nature of Etna, Petra’s place is highly recommended. The horses are super friendly, experienced and perfect for a trail ride or for a first experience for beginners. Petra is a very good teacher with good instruction. The small farm with its animals is made with a lot of love and perfect for families.
    It is a perfect way to explore the beautiful surrounding of Etna.
