Swimming and Fresh Air

Ok, all those stuffy churches and museums are starting to drive you crazy. What you need is a breath of fresh air to restore your sanity. Riserva Naturale Orientata Di Capo Gallo, a regional nature reserve of Sicily, is the perfect spot to lay low for a while and sip that bottle of Sicilian vino you undoubtedly brought with you discreetly. If you're feeling energetic, you can also scale Monte Gallo (not really a mountain, more a massive pile of rock) and soak in the spectacular views of the sea. Locals pack their swim suits and head to the many hidden coves that dot the coast.

Utrip Tips

*The nature reserve lies about eight miles north of central Palermo. A drive or cab ride takes twenty to thirty minutes.
