It’s a nice river located around 20km from Taormina. It’s well accessed by both local buses and the hop on Hop off tourist circuit although we drove there. We just wanted to go for a mature visit / walk and were bombarded with the tourist...More

Only 8€ entrance fee for a stroll through the park (around 1,5 km’s). Afterwhile you can take the elevator down to the water to wander around the Gorge. Stunning views in freezing water. It isn’t nature at it finest due to the commercial factor, but...More

The location is a good place for any age group, who wants to experience something with a difference. The best part was like three quarters inside the gorge, trying to swim against the currents in the cold fresh mountain water. It's best if you have...More
