Private Excursions

Argimusco Rocks and Montalbano Elicona

Pick-up in the hotel and departure for the Argimusco plateau, the only megalithic site in Sicily, known as the "Sicilian Stonehenge". Within this area two “Menhirs” are clearly visible, one male and one female symbols of fertility, the “Eagle” which in ancient traditions represented the escort of the souls of the dead for the afterlife, the “Orante”, also called the Neolithic Goddess , which represents a divinity in perfectly outlined prayer. From its summit you can also admire a good part of the Tyrrhenian coast (Tindari, Milazzo and the Aeolian Islands) and Etna. Continue to Montalbano and stop for lunch (not included). Visit of the medieval old town and the majestic Castle, perfectly recovered. Built on a primitive Roman fortress, with successive fortifications of Byzantine and Arab style, then completely rebuilt by the Normans. In more than eight centuries of history the castle has passed several times of ownership for alternate and obscure events. Return to the hotel in the afternoon.
