  • A great spot - we went in 42 degree heat! That and the gorge waters made our visit a great experience. And don't be fooled into thinking this is a theme park ride or anything similar - everyone there was in beach gear! You have to take a walk through the gorge though - some who braved the near freezing waters were clearly not prepared. Makes for some entertaining viewing let me tell you. Ha! A must visit.
  • A must place to see when visiting Sicily. The patterns created by mother nature in this place are simply wonderful and memorable. Water it's freezing cold but it's definitely worthy to walk through and appreciate the rocks. Remember to bring plastic shoes not to hurt your feet. There's the chance to both walk down the stairs or take the lift. But there's a difference of 8 euros between the two. I would recommend to just pay €1.50 for the stairs since they are perfectly doable even with kids.
