The Argimusco hiking tour in Montabano Elicona is the perfect choice in our list of Sicily day trips and tours from Messina port if you are looking for a destination off the beaten tracks. Argimusco hiking tour can make an impact on you: you are going to explore one of the most charming, mysterious and uncontaminated places on the entire island, that very few tourists are able to reach for one simple reason: almost no one knows it!
Argimusco is a plateau not far from the village of Montalbano Elicona Sicily. This particular place is characterized by the presence of many huge zoomorphic and anthropomorphic sandstone rock formations surrounded by fern and shaped during the centuries by the agents. The charm of this place is mainly due to the mystery around its use in the past and its unknown origins, probably used as a sky calendar: looking at the shape of the rocks you can barely believe it is a work of nature!
Enjoy the Argimusco hiking tour in this quiet and peaceful place where you will feel deeply reconnected with nature. Then the tour will continue with a visit to the medieval village of Montalbano Elicona Sicily, its ancient alleys, its beautiful castle, and of course a delicious tasting of local Sicilian products.
