Alcantara Gorge, Sicily

(550+ reviews on the web)
Canyon
Alcantara Gorge is a perfect place to swim, wade, and explore nature. You can view the gorge from above, walking among the lemon and orange trees, or you can descend to the bottom. If you plan on swimming, take a suit and sunscreen, as the sunlight gets quite strong in the area. There is also an elevator down to the water, so visitors who are physically challenged can enjoy it as well. Use our Motta Camastra trip builder to add Alcantara Gorge and other attractions to your Motta Camastra vacation plans.

  • According to sites with tips for travelers to visit necessarily Alcantara Gorge. And I don't understand why-the Township of banal and modest. The trip back was part of the excursion Etna e Alcantara, which I discovered via Interbus company website. The Guide gave us an hour and a half to study. Near the Gorge there is a botanical garden, General admission is 14 euros. In kindergarten, too, all modestly: go on a particular route, sometimes meet the shapes of animals, you can descend down to the Gorge. Maybe not, but the season is not impressed and seemed to toy and unserious.
