The only thing I can remember at the moment is the parking fine I received for supposedly incorrect parking. This isn’t clear at all why parking is not permitted and therefore questionable practice. Someone said that as the government has difficulty collecting taxes from its...More

You do not even have to go down to see its beauty! There are view terraces from above. A paid parking nearby helps the tourists. Although I have recently broken my leg I am still in rehabilitation, I managed to go down the stairs. It...More

This place is great and it’s almost the same view like Pamukkale in Turkey. It’s true that the little pools are missing, but the view and the fact you get to bath directly in the see, makes you climb back the staires with satisfaction.

Place is amazing and it is to be treated as a must sight seeing place...your children will love it, the water is Cristal clear and the sea is very calm that looks like a big natural pool.

A spot where the Nature shows up its sweetness... And thanks to Federica, touristic-train manager, the visit has been also comfortable (despite is a cliff tough)

Meh. If you want to see the white cliffs do it from the look-out area north of the actual cliffs. They are not particularly impressive. If you want a beach, it’s ok. Nothing special. Not worth the trip. And hot as Hades in August.

Quite close to the city of Agrigento, this natural ‘miracle’ is worth a visit. You can ideally combine a moment at/on the Scala dei Turchi with a moment at the beach. Park your car (for free!) somewhere in the street and walk down one of...More

We stayed in the area for 3 days during peak season. Crowded, but very beautiful. Nice place to swim and just enjoy the views. What takes the experience down is the litter both partly on the stairs, but particularly in the surroundings. From Agrigento to...More

It is perhaps you are facing the open sea waters facing the Mediterranean and not the ones facing the more closed waters even up North,.
