Posted by on Dec 21, 2015 in Houses | Comments Off on Amazing Scenery of Marzamemi

Just a few kilometres up the coast from Italy’s southernmost point, in the deep south-east of Sicily, is one of Sicily’s prettiest seaside villages: Marzamemi.
It was the Arabs of the 10th century who put Marzamemi on the map. They not only gave the village its poetic name, Marsà al-hamam (translating as something like Turtle Dove Bay) but also built the original tonnara (tuna processing plant), which was to become one of the most important on the island.

If you like nature, panoramic views and trekking you should have a trip to Cavagrande del Cassibile during your holiday in Sicily. It’s a huge nature reserve which surrounds the canyon formed by the little Cassibile river. The Canyon is about 10 Km long and has steep stone walls, over 300 m high in some points. Cavagrande is located few kilometers from the little town of Avola, southern of Syracuse. The main access point to the canyon is the little road which passes near Avola antica, a town destroyed by a terrible earthquake in the year 1693.

Spring is a great season to visit the nature reserve because the temperatures are mild and the landscape is fullfilled with flowers.

Beautiful Sykes Hot Springs

Posted by on Dec 12, 2015 in Adventure | Comments Off on Beautiful Sykes Hot Springs

Sykes Hot Springs is one of my favorite places to take first time backpackers who are reasonably fit. The destination has some nice hot springs and a trout filled stream. The hike is pretty. The trip is long enough that people have a sense they have accomplished something, but short enough that it’s not overwhelming for most.
Sykes-Hot-Springs-The trail is easy enough to follow that no maps are needed and there is little to no risk of getting lost. There are a number of clear milestones, so people can easily see that they are making progress. The conditions tend to be moderate year round so there is never a bad time to go.
