This is definitely worth a visit when in Sicily. Beautiful! Small tip: pack water shoes if you want to walk through the Gole. And be ware, the water is ice cold but worth it! Also is very cheap to visit this beautiful place.

Apart from the hordes of locals coming to Bath in the Alcantara, the rocks are simply beautiful. Take the time to have a walk in the river to discover those ancient rock formations. Do not forget watershoes or flip-flops.

In November access to the river is limited. However, a well constructed path leads around the major sights of the gorge and with complete absence of other visitors was a pleasure.

The park was closed and the river was high. We are from Alaska so did not expect a wilderness adventure. But is is beautiful agrarian countryside and worth a visit.

In 2017 it was 3€ for the public entrance, and 13€ for the elevator entrance (in this case there is also a little walk along the park). Anyway at the end you will arrive at the same point.
