Maritime surburbs of Porticello and Sant'Elia - From the farmhouse you can easily reach the motorway crossroad Palermo-Catania and the state roads, that from the suburb of Santa Flavia, easily link Agrigento and the Valley of Temples, Trapani with the salt pans and Erice, as well as Catania and Messina. Remember to visit the little maritime suburbs of Porticello and Sant’Elia, set between the sea and the bluffs where, in the background, there is the unmistakable Capo Zafferano. From the farmhouse, you can easily go to one of the most impressive places of Sicily: the historical Soluto, ancient Phoenician city (then Hellenic and Roman) on the slopes of the Catalfano Mountain that dominates the sea with a magnificent show of archaeological testimonies that dates from the VII century B.C.
From the suburb of Santa Flavia, a quiet and very charming little town near Palermo, you can easily reach the maritime suburbs of Porticello and Sant'Elia, very picturesque towns with interesting sights and nice bays, with the beautiful Capo Zafferano in the background. The archaeological site of Solunto, an ancient Phoenician settlement that was later occupied by the Greeks and the Romans, right on top of Mt. Catalfano, dominates the sea with an extraordinary exhibit of archaeological evidences dating back to the VII century b.C. And then there is the wonderful Palermo, a sumptuous and multi-cultural city with a great history and really wonderful sights, monuments, buildings and parks. Do not forget to taste the typical delicacies - Palermo is one of the first European cities for the street food tradition: try arancine, bread with panelle (fried chickpeas wheat), sfincione and pani ca' meusa (bread with spleen)... and then just wander around through the narrow tangled streets of the historic centre, ending up in beautiful elegant squares with splendid Baroque churches and museums.
