  • This site offers everything that is possible to imagine a leap into the past. but it is kept very badly. We found plastic bags and tubes everywhere, within the various bins. I wonder how the Town spend money tickets ... disappointing. The Gymnasium, the catacombs, deserve greater attention.

  • Fabulous place to explore, with a huge history going back to the very earliest settlors in Sicily. Children will also find it great to explore. Well presented and very good value. There is a car park ...  more »
  • We drove from Noto against Modica and followed the signs for Cava d'Ispica. The first P-sign on the right side was a small water mill with museum. Other P-sign on the right side led to a small car park directly opposite the entrance to the archaeological site. There is a small bar/shop opposite p-plate. From the last parking space, one can also get to the water turbine, go approx. 250 meters. We first visited the watermill (very interesting). At the entrance to the archaeological park, we bought two tickets a 4 euro. A friendly man led us to a site map. Here, he appointed the starting point and the route around, and told what was not available. He believed it would take approx. 1 hour. We walked briskly away and so only small items, but all of a sudden, we were able to see the caves and caverns, both up and down in the terrain. And there were plenty of them. The terrain was ok, but a little stairs up and down (nothing compared to a trip to Cava Grande!!). So people in wheelchairs and walkers poorly will not be able to get anywhere. Most caves had to come into. There were individual in several floors and at least 2 places there were graves, which were very well preserved. We highly recommend a visit to 1-2 hours, if one is interested in caves, grottoes and tombs. The place is also ideal for small children. Hopefully they get open the last spots in the area too, so there is even more to see.

  • History of Greece in Sicily. Choose a cooler day because there are no shadows
  • 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.
  • The mill museum was better than the caverns
  • 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.
