Alcantara Gorge, Sicily

3.4
#16 of 84 in Nature in Sicily
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.

  • The Gorges are very interesting. The scenic spot to visit for excellence is the viewpoint of the gorges, don't miss the tumult of the volcano where the river meets the basaltic rocks. Other sights are the balcony of Venus, a little more tucked away inside the Park and the balcony of the waterfalls, where you can see the cave of the Gorge and the beach. The beach is where the walk ends, the bed of the river where we could admire the Gorges right in front of us. You can also enjoy activities such as rafting and many other.

  • the place is wonderful and magical but some things are not going well. I understand that behind such attractiveness there is desire sacrosanct to make it a source of income for the territory but we must always remain within the clarity and correctness. After paying the ticket for entrance with ability to walk around the Park and take elevator to take down the throats I discover that there is a public passage with only 3 euros ... and this is not because we have to properly inform those using the Park that there is also this way cheaper than around 10 euros! I did not appreciate that there are all these people to encourage you insistently to spend on things that then turn out of disappointment. but the ravines are so beautiful that they deserve top honors

  • Such a beautiful place to see. A must do on a trip to Sicily. The water is very cold, so don't stay in it too long! The walls of the gorge are unlike anything I've seen before. There are small beaches...  more »
