  • Really enjoyed our first trip out to the Cava d'Ispica. Usefully had information boards in English as well as Italian. I just got the feeling we were missing half of the visit as the route was blocked...  read more »
  • Cava d'Ispica is an interesting, easily accessed, low traffic archaeological site with catacombs and living spaces. Signs are in Italian and English which made it more informative for us. 
  • We arrived almost by accident ... but it was worth it. The quarry is a 14 kilometre long Gorge but can only be visited both ends: a short distance from Modica and a neighbouring House. We came from the part of Ispica. The landscape is unique. A hidden gem!!! Though too underrated .... not a guide, not a designation, not a recommended route ... no nothing. It also lacks a serious maintenance: many points are not accessible, others are overgrown by grass and rubbish .... Despite everything I recommend visiting.

  • Interesting to see some of the caves and to ponder what it was like to carve out those rooms and live in them. The descriptions on the signs were somewhat informative, the trails were in poorly maintained condition getting overrun by weeds and the area you are able to visit is pretty small compared to the length of the valley. If it were along the way i'd probably stop but certainly wouldn't go out of my way to visit.
  • History of Greece in Sicily. Choose a cooler day because there are no shadows
  • A nice archeological site that is to be seen on an easy walk around. Information can be gathered at entrance station by self guide phones. That site also is an medival tomb yard as well as in use to live for people until the 1930s. Do not forget to visit the near by Mulino ad Aqua. Very interessting site too.
  • The mill museum was better than the caverns
  • Interesting
