Explore the most fascinating ancient rock formations in Sicily with this hiking route through the Argimusco Plateau. You'll also be able to visit the castle of Frederick II, in the beautiful village of Montalbano Elicona

Argimusco Plateau & Montalbano Elicona Hike

On the day of the activity, we'll meet at the time of your choice on Via I Settembre in Messina. From there, we'll hit the road for Argimusco by bus.

About an hour and a half later, we'll arrive at our destination and begin our trekking route through the famous plateau of Argimusco. Over the course of two hours, we'll walk through a landscape full of huge stones that, for centuries, have been polished by the elements creating fascinating shapes.

Although this area is popularly known as the Sicilian Stonehenge, the landscape is quite reminiscent of the Marcahuasi plateau in Lima. During the tour, your guide will reveal the differences between these three curious places.

Continuing on this hike through Argimusco, we will eventually reach the village of Montalbano Elicona, a hilltop village with striking scenery.

When we arrive, we'll visit the town's castle, built in the 12th century by order of Emperor Frederick II. Inside you'll see an exhibition of armor, ancient musical instruments and a Byzantine chapel of great historical value. 

At the end of the visit, we'll head to a restaurant to enjoy a tasting of typical local products. Then, after seven hours, we'll return to Messina and the tour will come to an end.
