We were a family of six and everybody enjoyed the trip! It’s worth the effort, you will hike through scenic landscape and at the end get rewarded with a cool dip. Take enough water and Moskito repellent with you!

It's a great hike,but some paths were closed and therefore some entry points to the canyon too. I recommend to check where you go and park ahead!

Hundreds of steps and 40 mins of walking are worth the amazing view. Bring bathing clothes, enough water and food! Notice that you have to cope with the difference in height of about 250-300m.

This is a beautiful place to see next to Avola (30 min driving up on the hill), and next to Noto too. If you like nature and you are able to do a good walking, it is worth for sure

This is a beautiful place. The walk there was wonderful although a bit challenging because of the heat and the many steps. But it was all worth it. The ponds are just beautiful. Water was so refreshing after the hike there. The view and the...More

If I have ever sweated more or been more tired as a result of holiday outing, I can't remember. But the beer at the top once I finally got out of the gorge was possibly the best ever. Great bathing spot and very Italian. However,...More
