This was a real surprise for us, we went to see the temples, which were impressive but this beach and rock formations far eclipsed the temples. They are truley breathtaking and the pictures on line don't do them justice. A truley unique experience and well worth the drive to see them. We spent the whole day on the beach, in... More

We loved this stop on our way to the archeological site of Agrigento. It's a little bit out of the way and the signs are not very clear, but a good GPS will do the trick. As with many things in Sicily, this attraction is underrated and definitely worth a detour. After a short walk on the beach, you can... More

No tourist entry price, no entry desk. There is a series of steps down to the beach, walk along the sand and then up to the cliffs themselves. A beautiful natural wonder. The kids loved climbing up the cliffs. It felt safe but I am not sure how it would be on a wet day and we were also not... More

I had read about the Scala dei Turchi and we decided to stop there on our way back to Agrigento after a day on the beach at Eraclea Minoa. From the main road it is well marked how to get there, surprisingly. We noticed a crowd of cars along the road at one point but kept driving to the parking... More

We stopped by the Scale dei Turchi with little expectations. It wasn't originally on our top must-sees, but we added it on when another site wasn't open. It was a little out of our way to drive there, but when we arrived, we realized it was worth it. Amazingly beautiful views with such a large natural formation right on the... More

We arrived in the last part of the day and the view was the most breathtaking scene I have ever seen in my life. I wish we could have just laid on the beach and on the steps all day long. This is definitely a spot to spend a whole day relaxing. There is a little restaurant and vendors on... More

Fortunately for us, this was in easy walking distance of where we stayed (villa del saraceno - which was great) and was quite stunning. I would certainly recommend seeing it and if you spend a bit of time there and walk a bit further round you will probably have the place to yourselves at some point. Stunning views.
