    We visited with friends for a birthday celebration and the birthday girl loved it which was really all that mattered. But as for coming here for any other reason or to simply visit again--no way! In t...  more »

    The tour is fascinating. This place is totally unique and you have to watch the video and take the tour to appreciate it. I'm used to being around ecology folks but for me this was a new spin on all o...  more »

    Arcosanti is evidence that good ideas are often inadequate and the implementation in the real world is often more difficult than expected. The city of the future by Paolo Soleri designed and the beginning of the 1970s to implement is trying, unfortunately never gone beyond the ground. Today, it consists of some, meanwhile again dilapidated houses. Without a guide, you can see from outside little and also no insight into the visionary ideas. The guided tours take place daily from 10.00 until 16.00. A donation of $10 per person is expected. All interesting but only for die-hard fans.

    I live and work here in Arcosanti, and this is one of the most powerful and eye opening experiences I've had living in a place. I work in the cafe from time to time, and everyday our chefs (residents) get to choose what they want to cook. Never a set menu. We always have vegan and gluten free options, but if you want to know exactly what we're making, call ahead! It's a buffet/family style type of eating. Make sure to take a tour and spend the night. This project is AMAZING.

    Play a good game of chess and enjoy your great tasting hot coffee while you see unbelievable views of cliffs, valleys and skies. Unique architecture design with a pleasurable attitude. Food was very good and had many dishes to choose from. Sunrise or sunset the view are incredible well worth the trip!

    Did not have food, service times are berry limited so plan ahead, but otherwise, loved the tour.

    Good food at reasonable prices including breakfast and lunch menus. The local artist and worker population eat here, too. Hike to the other side of the canyon for a full view of the buildings.

    Only had coffee and tea but this is not the place you come to eat but rather to see a glimpse of what a future model city might look like. Only a small portion of the vision is represented in what has been built, but very interesting nevertheless. Visit Arcosanti and buy a on-site made bronze or clay bell. Do not miss the videos before the free tour. Really helps you understand what you are looking at.
