Floresta

The highest municipality in Sicily is 1275 metres above sea level, at the centre of the Nebrodi regional park. Immersed in the greenest woods on the island, this little village seems to have been, in Roman times, a base for the gathering of wood for the ships of the fleet worked by slaves condemned to life imprisonment; it is also the place where the Ionian Sea meets the Tyrrhenian Sea. It became a fiefdom in the XIV century and a municipality in 1820, on the abolition of feudal privileges. It is an excellent place to stay and an ideal starting point for excursions on foot, on horseback, by bicycle and, of course, by car.
