Pantalica is the most impressive prehistoric and Paleo Christian settlement in Europe. Nestled amongst this valley carved out by the Anapo and Calcinara rivers, you can find tombs, Byzantine churches, caves and a windmill which are all testament to man’s ancient presence here.
Our first stop is the Nature Reserve Pantalica, a city founded by ancient Sicilian people, was inhabited for over 2400 years until the end of the twelfth century and features the largest necropolis in Europe. After visiting this beautiful reserve, we will move to Sortino where we will provide a delightful range of typical Sicilian products.After lunch there will be a great opportunity to learn about the history of Sortino. The basement of the castle is still visible today. We will take a short walk to get to know Sortino better.Enjoy a complimentary hotel pickup and transfer from your centrally located Cairns accommodations from our Multilanguage Tour Gide, which brings you to Pantalica. Before we bring you back to Catania, we will have a typical Sicilian lunch all together. You will be at your hotel at 6pm.
