What you'll do

The experience consists of a ring path trekking which crosses all the main spots of M.Pellegrino, "the most beautiful hill in the world" (according to J.W. Von Goethe). The route takes place within the natural reserve (A area), and crosses various ecosystems of vegetation, pine woods, Mediterranean scrub, oak woods, a canyon, a natural pool and rocky areas. We'll visit the Sanctuary of Santa Rosalia, the Saint Patron of Palermo, with a church inside a cave, admire different views of the city and have lunch tasting some traditional street foods. The route can be modified according to the participants. The path is 10 km long but there are many variations to make it shorter or longer, harder or easier. This route is not touristic, and even the majority of the locals don't know it. it's very beautiful and particular, into the wild. You'll get a panoramic view seeing the city and the sea from above. I'll share my knowledge about the local fauna and flora, the information about the surrounding us nature and the history of the places we cross. A real treasure you can't miss if you visit Palermo and if you love to walk inside nature. Perfect to get a complete view and understanding of the city.

Hi everyone, Since I was a child I have had a great passion for the mountains. At 8 years this passion led me to attend a scout group. After 10 years of trekking and exploration activities throughout Sicily, I started practicing climbing and mountaineering. In 2017 I traveled by bike and climbed ten 4000, alone, into the Alps, including Mont Blanc. I did courses to become a guide and took part in many projects based on team working and facilitation. I know every path and every secret corner of the area of Palermo including the best sea and mountain spots. I love playing sports, walking, being in harmony with the nature which surrounds me, enjoying the scenery and sharing them with people who join the tour. "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands, but in having new eyes" is my motto.
