Advice on where to stay

Day 1

LOOKING FOR KOKALOS THE SICANS'S KING

The first day is dedicated to the exploration of Sant’Angelo Muxaro: a village with a thousand-year history which slumbers on a hill in the valley of the Platani River. It is one of the most important centers of protohistoric Sicily. After a stroll among craft stores and  the opportunity of tasting some local products, the walk takes you out of town along the slopes of the hills discovering the mythical ‘Royal Tomb’ and other mysterious necropolises among amazing landscapes. Lunch will be a nice informal outdoor buffet prepared by local families.
