Une très belle journée ! Je recommande!!!
Super journée avec une guide (Sara) à la bonne humeur communicative !
Départ à 9h de l’hôtel (Messine) et retour à 17h30. On a pu faire une randonnée de presque 3 heures avec départ à 1900m d’altitude. Les commentaires de la guide, qui parle français, étaient enrichissants. Puis très bon repas dans un gîte (tout inclus) suivi d’une petite escale pour visiter une grotte en redescendant !
Je recommande 🙂
