Its not exactly easy to get to. Best to hire a car if your not local. Once you're there you have a 10 minute walk from the road to the cliffs, but its definitely worth it. Its not a place for very small kids though, there are no safety barriers etc. but its a truly magnificent geological phenomenon, well worth... More

Worth the stroll along the beach to see this site - never seen anything like it before - might be a bit hot later in he year from the heat reflected off the white stone

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
