Itinerary 2

Itiner. Mte Portella RITAGLIO

A WALK ON MOUNT PORTELLA

From the town hall, you go to the higher part of the village through a spiral staircase that leads to Piazza della Costituzione. From here, you walk along via Melissa and you take at first via Pitagora, then via Giovanni XXIII and at the end via Casale until Strada proviciale 43. After the cemetery, you have walked for 2.000 meters from the town centre and now you can take the first turning on the right following the way to Mount Portella.  After 2.000 meters, you find a crossroads. If you turn left, you go up for 2.000 meters to reach the Animated Wood in Rinusu, at about 1.100 meters from the sea. On the top of Mount Portella, you can enjoy a breath-taking view – the two coasts until the horizon and the Stromboli island on clear days.
