  • These gurne are part of the Alcantara River Park and are located in the municipality of Francavilla di Sicilia.  I'm honest? It wasn't exactly easy to reach them and indeed it wasn't for anything! The only two directions we received around were unclear and the signage was inconsistent so much so that it took quite a while to find them and we were also lucky! Lucky because while we asked directions to a passerby who didn't know how to help, I turn my head and see attached on a wall a big signboard more or less than an A4 sheet (then practically invisible from the moving car) that says "Gurne->". And to think that with a decent signage we would come in 10 minutes.  What a show! Very carefully (because if you fall in you're literally dead), the most that I can do is to take a few pictures.  We're going back because there's just no chance to drive along the river. We continue on our journey that becomes heavier and heavier in an increasingly hostile path and abandoned by man.  The excursion lasted for about two hours. On one side was rewarding drive along the mountain on one side and the River on the other but personally I was quite disappointed. At some point the landscape was heaped with trash including cans, burned, bottles, rubbish ... sign that some uncivil goes to "signature". The signs guide – whose writings were now faded – were likely to show that until recently the route was handled differently, as we found ourselves literally abandoned.

  • Throat quite accessible even for the elderly. 2 types of visit to 8 and 13 euros. Access to the elevator that leads directly to the beach of l ' water is 10 degrees provide tongues or shoes that allow to walk in the water of the River with stones. The visit beforehand st organised around the observation of the gorge and its surroundings.
