Pick up in hotel by your English speaking driver. Departure for Lentini to visit the famous Giardino del Biviere, a unique Mediterranean garden. The tour is held by the owner Princess Maria Carla Borghese. According to legend, here Hercules, son of Zeus, gave as a gift to Ceres, the Roman goddess of harvest, the skin of the Nemean Lion he had defeated. Once he arrived in Lestrigoni, the little town where the Ceres lived, he created from dry and desolate land a lake that was named after him: “Lacunus Erculeus”. This lake, once surrounded by rich vegetation and animal life, was dried out in the 1930’s in order to defeat the malaria disease. Today, thanks to its local community’s love for plants, it has been turned into a unique and picturesque Mediterranean garden. The old south-facing port shows an extraordinary collection of plants of the Cactaceae variety growing on the carefully restored jetties to form a gangway of greenery. Princess Borghese will be happy to enjoy a cocktail with you before your return to the hotel.
