Welcome to Parco Naturale Regionale delle Madonie

An outdoorsy paradise that's well-suited to slow, culturally rich travel, the Monti Madonie (Madonie Mountains) are crowned by Pizzo Carbonara (at 1979m the highest mountain in Sicily after Mt Etna), and the regional park takes in farms, hilltop towns and – yes – even a ski resort.

Spring here sees spectacular spreads of wildflowers carpeting the mountain slopes; autumn brings wild mushrooms and richly coloured foliage; winter draws snow sports enthusiasts to Piano Battaglia; and June through August offers an escape from the coastal crowds.

This is not just a nature reserve but an area where people live and work, so you can combine hiking with visits to historic hilltop towns and meals in some fine restaurants.
