Attraction details
Owner description: L’ascesa al colle della “terra vecchia”, resa possibile dal suggestivo ascensore panoramico inclinato, conferisce ai visitatori la duplice emozione di godere una vista, di grande valenza paesaggistica, del comprensorio Taormina-Etna e della valle fluviale del Fiume Alcantara e nello stesso tempo di farsi sfiorare dal fascino delle vestigia di secoli di storia del Mediterraneo. Un sapiente lavoro di restauro ha portato alla luce un sito archeologico-monumentale di eccezionale importanza. The ascent to the hill of the "old earth", made possible by the impressive panoramic lift, gives to the visitors the thrill to enjoy a view of great value: the mount Etna and Taormina, the valley of the Alcantara River and at the same time to be touched by the charm of the vestiges of centuries of Mediterranean history.A skilful restoration work has unearthed a monumental archaeological site of exceptional importance.

A renovated castel, reachable by a funicular. You should go there especially if you have children.
