Could be further enhanced, particularly with regard to the use of the circuit around him: a few races, even a little, 1 bench by the Lake and pure route. Fortunately, the track is accessible for long walks in contact with nature, racing and cycling (why not equip a bike?)
A place to visit if you are a car racing enthusiast as here you find the Autodromo di Pergusa.
One of the most beautiful places I've truly loved!
Area poorly maintained poorly exploited. The track could bring the economy doesn't use it
There are three trails on the shores of the Lake. Beautiful to cross on foot or by mountain bike. The lake view is magnificent and is the ideal setting for birdwatchers migratory periods.
