From Palermo: Zingaro Reserve, San Vito Lo Capo and Scopello

1. From Palermo: Zingaro Reserve, San Vito Lo Capo and Scopello

Depart from Palermo and discover the colors of the sea that cannot be missed during a trip to Sicily. Leave from the main pick-up points in Palermo and arrive in Castellammare del Golfo a bit like a small pearl of sailors from where the cruise departs. The boat leaves Catsellammare port at 9:30 AM. You will first discover the famous caves that rise right out of the sea and where the captain comes over to see them. Resuming navigation, we enter the 7km-long Zingaro Reserve where beaches and coves alternate and where you will swim in the most beautiful beach called "Cala Uzzo". Cala Uzzo is the largest bay, the most beautiful, and the place richest in fish due to the fishing bans in the reserve, therefore a perfect place for snorkeling. Continuing the navigation at 11:30 AM you will arrive in San Vito Lo Capo where you will have 4 hours of free time to visit it. San Vito is a very small town: the boat mooring, the beach, and the center are very close on foot (7 min). Here you can find the most beautiful beach in the area with white sand and Caribbean color of the sea. In the center, you can eat the typical "couscous" which will make you relive the Arab culture that characterized the town in the past. Or you can taste the typical "hot-cold" ice cream. Above all, walking through the narrow streets with their scents and colors is an experience not to be missed. Free time in San Vito Lo Capo is from 11:30 AM to 3:30 PM. When you get back on board, on the way back there will be another snorkeling stop in front of the "Faraglioni di Scopello". Here you will be able to swim in crystal clear waters with a breathtaking view that will make you feel like you are in a film set in ancient Sicily. Return to the Port of Castellammare at 5.30 PM and arrive in Palermo at 6.30 PM. During the day you can choose to buy a typical light snack on board: bread, fruit, water and wine.

We were visiting family in Alcamo and decided last minute to do an excursion for something different. This was a nice change of pace for us. The views were incredible! The guide was very informative - we learned new things about the Sicilian culture, and had fun while doing so on the buggy’s! You don’t drive right up the the temple but you do get a great view and fun photo opportunities with the guide’s help.

It was a great mix of action and culture. Giorgio is a personable guide. We were even spoiled with Sicilian specialties. We recommend!
