Scopello, situated in a rocky inlet, is an idyllic small village in the northwestern corner of Sicily, found to the west of Palermo. The beauty of this place has recently attracted film directors and famous photographers. Scopello and its famous rock towers (Faraglioni di Scopello) have appeared in the film Ocean’s Twelve.
A couple of kilometers further you can find the Zingaro nature reserve (this was the first place in Sicily to become protected, in 1981). In the side of the mountain runs a 7 km long hiking trail, from which you get unforgettable views of the inlet and its untouched shores. It’s worth preparing for the walk; with sports shoes, sunscreen, lots of drinking water and food, and after you’ve tired yourself out, you can simply take a swim in the crystal clear water.
If you’re looking for the "real" Sicily, you’ll find it here, in this beautiful inlet on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea, where you can bathe among magnificent cliffs. Here there is no crowd, no noise, just uninterrupted relaxation, recharging and the unique feeling of the closeness of nature. If you’re hungry, you can sit out on the terrace of a restaurant, and besides the beautiful view, the smell and taste of the dishes will also enhance the enjoyment of the holiday. Sicily is one of the favorite destinations of tourists coming to the Mediterranean Sea.
The island, which is part of Italy, is only separated from the famous Italian boot by the Messina strait, where the eastern end of Sicily is just 3,1 kilometers away from the westernmost point of the peninsula. Thanks to the small distance the island is also accessible by ferry, so it could be part of a bigger Italian road trip. Sicily is the place where everyone would like to visit at least once in their lifetime. And why? This beautiful Mediterranean island gives a great experience to travelers coming from all over the world: unique wine excursions, fantastic food, relaxing bathing, historic adventure, and exciting cultural programs - the list goes on.
