Cavagrande del Cassibile, Avola
(4.5/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Considered by locals to be the Grand Canyon of Sicily, Cavagrande del Cassibile is a nature reserve surrounding a large canyon. Perfect for nature-lovers, hikers, or those who enjoy extreme sports, this reserve offers something for everyone. Admire the scenery from the road, or venture onto one of the many paths to get closer to the wildlife, waterfalls, and flora of the park. During the summer, head down to the many freshwater pools that line the bottom of the canyon and cool down in the crisp water. If it's your first visit, we suggest the Scala Cruci pathway, an easier option that doesn't sacrifice great views.

  • If you are good walkers and not familiar with laziness, visit this site characteristic and fascinating. Layered clothing and shoes (no sandals, flip flops or heels), plenty of water, fruit and sandwiches for demanding and enjoy your ride. The location is a bit bumpy but still quite accessible. The scenery is very nice although the fire a couple of years ago has certainly damaged this fantastic place. After a good comfortable walking about an hour you will arrive to these natural lagetti fresh water flowing will be a lifesaver for the body. Take it even more convenient for the ski lifts.

  • 为什么这么说,因为当你下山以后,欣赏完美丽的景色以后,一想起要上山,你就会有一种宁愿“死”在山下的错觉!虽然很累,但风景很美,那人也很美~ 
  • a brisk walk in the nature, the spectacle that immerses the canion refreshes by fatigue
