  • We arrived quite early ok 9:30 so neither heat nor the crowd bothered us to enjoy this place. Is probably several options of routes to choose from. I do not remember that we chose, but it requires a little time and a few involving the muscles of the approaches and go down. After the passage of the greater part we got into the river and a wide band that did for the beaches. It was beautiful. Water freezing. Full relaxation. Recommend.

  • The place is beautiful and special, so he deserves a THOUSAND dots only in Sicily and beyond. The management of the site is by complaint to the authorities: valets abusive; prices of services "airtight" and quality poor. From siciliano say to SIN! There we ever.

  • to see absolutely. recommend you go there in the summer and when the Sun is shining because the water is frozen (as there are waterfalls and current). I went with the entrance hall which costs 2 euros, you descend stairs that are feasible even for the climb (paying € 5 instead of 2 you can take the lift to go up, but in my opinion it is unnecessary). Council to get shoes for the rocks because the bottom is made of stones and are very slick, barefoot is unable to walk, and don't bring anything of value such as money or cellphones because (staff) there's a store where you can leave your belongings. I brought a few backpackers but only points the water is shallow, continuing arrives at life so they get wet.

  • Great natural canyon, beautiful basalt rocks, that's worth a five star rating. During high season and good weather however it will be extremely crowded. If you go through the main entrance you can use the elevator, it will cost you €13 per person. Tip: There are also a communal stairs that will cost you only €2,- ( park at the main entrance, walk out again on the road to the left, you'll find the communal entrance after a few hundred meters at the left. it will save you €11 per person (and half an hour of waiting at the cash register on busy days). You'll not see the "botanical gardens" but you won't miss a thing... best time to visit is from April to June and September to October.
  • The place is superb and we'll maintained. If you want to spare a bit, buy the tickets in Taormina or in another collaborating site, so you pay 8 euro in place of 15. If you plan to do body rafting, bring your own diving suite if you can and want to spare. Fluvial activities only with optimal weather. Gorgeous and nice fir kids too. Just one note: the elevator tower is quite awful, it should be renovated according to the environment. The dressing room for fluvial activities are near to sufficience, but guides are friendly and caring.
  • The gole is a nice place to visit. It offers some beautiful views. However it is really commercial with paid parking and access to the Gole starting at €8 for normal entrance and €13 including the botanical garden. The water is freezing but worth to dive in on a hot day.
  • Beautiful nature trail. Walk in the shallow waters into the gorge. As others have said - walk up the street from the main entrance to the communal entrance where you can pay 1.50 person using the stairs. About 200 steps. Easy. Well maintained.
  • Extremely beautiful, definitely worth a visit. But not much to do there. Don't use the elevator! Its overpriced (I think 13€) a few meters down the road you can use the stairs for 1,5€
