Not far from Mount Etna, Sicily rises beyond 2,000 meters with its highest mountains. The Madonie Mountains represent an alternative side of Sicily, a rugged and earthy part of this region adorned with perched villages and countryside. Here, they cultivate vegetable gardens and olive groves, producing almonds, figs, and hazelnuts.
You'll walk with frequent, breathtaking views of central Sicily, Mount Etna, and the sea. At the end of the journey, you descend to the Mediterranean scrubland and the emerald sea of Cefalù, known for its Norman Cathedral and Byzantine mosaics.
