What you'll do

"A passiata" (the walking, in Sicilia dialect) is 6km long, 400m difference in altitude, that people of Comiso do for ages to get the natural and archaeological park of Cava Porcaro. An itinerary of emotional and slow tourism. We'll meet at Piazza Fonte Diana in Comiso where "everything is composed of breathes, for a natural destiny, in a constant, and chancing, and happy atmosphere and improvisation scene [...] Comiso, a city-theatre", as described by Gesualdo Bufalino. We'll reach the ancient cobblestone path, between olive and carob trees and Barbary figs, through a part of the " trazzera dell'Annunziata" that people of Comiso used for reaching Castiglione and Ragusa. To each hairpin, we'll see beautiful panoramas on the city and the sea. I'll tell you about famous "Comisani's" life and about the almost unknowns catacombs of Cava Porcaro, it's visit is included in the experience. We'll end the experience at Comiso, coming back through the small alleys of the "città-teatro"
