Hello! I'm Martina Belfiore, the author of this itinerary that I chose because I wanted to suggest a different trip in this beautiful area, which is not so known. "Fiumara d'arte" is a mind-blowing circuit of outdoor sculptures along the bed of the river Tusa that flows among the Nebrodi mountains. Each sculpture has a different concept and meaning, according to what the artist wanted to express. You wil be able to meditate, think about life and establish a new connection with the surrounding nature and its elements such as water, mountains and even with the sun. I hope you'll choose and enjoy this itinerary, you won't regret it! Have a nice trip!
Since you'll be going to the beach, don't forget to bring a couple of bathing suits, your sunscreen and a hat (you should use these last two during the excursions as well!) The sculptures of the tour may be located on hills and you will have to walk a lot, please remember to pack a pair of hiking shoes. As you know, June in Sicily means high temperatures and scorching sun, therefore you should wear light clothes, drink lots of water and bring some snacks for the daily excursions. If you choose the travel period I've suggested, you may find several events taking place at the hotel "Atelier sul Mare Museo Albergo", such as the Laboratory of Ceramics and the Ritual of Light, which is held at the "38° Parallelo - Piramide" sculpture. When you're there, please ask the hotel staff about the upcoming events or send them an e-mail in order to know it in advance. You also may have to adjust the activities I recommended in order to attend the aforementioned events.
