Discovering Scopello in a Day

One-Day Experiences

If you're staying at Hotel Torre Bennistra, perhaps for a romantic escape, consider spending your day exploring the charming village of Scopello.
A brief two-minute walk from the hotel will bring you to this delightful destination. Stroll through its narrow lanes, past the ancient watering trough and verdant trees, and peruse the vibrant offerings of its traditional shops. Here, you'll find souvenirs, local crafts, ceramics, and an array of local wines, among other treasures, as well as quaint, upscale boutiques.
Be captivated by the baglio, a typical courtyard accessed via an arch, now a hub for various enterprises. Don't miss out on tasting the "pane cunzato," a delicious bread topped with tomato, oregano, and cheese, indulging in some exquisite ice cream, or enjoying an aperitif at one of the square's bars. Immerse yourself in the relaxed pace of life here, a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle, where time appears to stand still.
For those seeking sun and sea, the coves of the Zingaro Reserve beckon. Our staff can arrange a guided tour for you to uncover the secrets of the reserve, offering tales and anecdotes that paint a vivid picture of this unparalleled spot on the globe. Whether you prefer the road less traveled or a more adventurous trek suited to avid walkers, we can customize an experience to match your desires and needs.


Experiences to do in three days

If you plan to stay at our hotel in Scopello for at least three days, the experience that we propose always begins with the sea of Scopello and its beautiful coves. The first day you can dedicate it to swimming, sunbathing and hiking discovering Cala Mosche, Scoglio del Passero, Mazzo di Sciacca, the bay of Guidaloca, up to the Zingaro Reserve.
You will find a world of natural beauty accessible with a certain degree of adventurous spirit and passion for long walks, considering that the paths to reach some of these nature oases are challenging: commitment that will be rewarded by the charm that the sea and the landscape of these places will give.
