Description

Explore the historic Pantalica Nature Reserve and the scenic town of Sortino in the Anapo River Valley. Visit Pantalica, one of the most impressive prehistoric and Paleo-Christian settlements in Europe. Then, explore nearby Sortino and see the town’s memorable architecture. Get picked up from your accommodation in Catania, then head to the first stop: Pantalica Nature Reserve. Pantalica is located on a limestone promontory surrounded by a deep gorge formed by the Anapo and Calcinara rivers between the towns of Ferla and Sortino in Sicily. Pantalica was founded by Sicilian populations where they settled for over 2400 years until the end of the 12th century. This charming place is the largest necropolis in Europe. Here, you'll find the Necropolis of Pantalica, a collection of historic tombs. Next, head to the second stop, the town of Sortino. Sortino has always been known for being one of the most scenic homelands with Sicilian Baroque. Marvel at the architecture of the town's buildings and churches, including Mother Church of Sortino that features the Baroque style. At the end of the tour, get dropped off back at your accommodation or another drop-off location in Catania.
