Monte Monaco (532m) is the most northern mountain of Sicily and from the top of the mountain you can see the spectacular view over the gulf of Castellammare until Monte Cofano, from the beach of San Vito Lo Capo to the farer Monte Erice and, if you are lucky, you may even see the island of Ustica at the horizon.
Monte Monaco can be summited from the east or the west side of the mountain. It is possible to make this into a loop, making it into a walk of around half a day.
