  • Guests arriving on a visit to Taormina, head to this particular site easy to get to. I recommend not dirigeteviall parking entrance from 13 euros just because it's private and you go from a cactus garden restaurants etc. Use the entrance hall to 1.5 euros which it accesses through a staircase down to the bed of the river. In fact the tourist attraction is nothing more than just a River Gorge that rocks were formed from basaltic lava flows and presents spectacular silvery shades. Surely there are other points besides that to go but here you can challenge themselves in a Ford of the river and/or in a walk right into the River as long as you can. Keep in mind that the water is always cold. To see

  • Reluctant to pay for expensive and unnecessary services, we preferred to access the communal staircase instead of the private elevator (counting 1.5 euros instead of 13 euros for finally barely a hundred steps). Communal access which is good is located after the large parking lot on the left (take his ticket in the small cabin in front). Arrived at the bottom: big disappointment since we arrive finally beside a river and it is not possible to follow over 100 metres (no path on this side). We moved so at the foot of the markets for a picnic a little frustrated with not seeing big thing. Information taken from the few people we have met at this time, there are shoes and cross the bed of the river walk (water the knee about - be careful, it is glossy). Got in front, we go up the river for about 100 metres and then the road climbs into the forest for 15 minutes. It then leads to a paved road. Take to the right for about 10 minutes. You will reach a small parking lot where it is written "Terrazze Alcantara". Down a few steps into this parking lot, finally views of the Gorge from above! Because when even, what are we came to see, not the bed of the river. The output is probably more appropriate in the summer where it is possible to back up the River to feet to see the gorges from inside. In November, the water is too cold and the flow too much.

  • Went a little afternoon, was missing as a time for dusk and had that make the tour slightly precipitate, but deserves a lot it penalty, although is a little badly signposted; very good pictures.
