What to see in Sicily? Discover this incredible place where the lava meets the cold water of the Alcantara river, and continue the tour to the charming Taormina

Among the must-see Messina Italy attractions, there is the Botanic Park of the Alcantara Gorges, a spectacular place to include in the list of what to see in Sicily, not so far from Taormina Sicily. Almost 50 meters high, the gorges are a real canyon created from the cool-down phenomena of ancient lava flows furrowed by the cold water of the Alcantara River.

The little beach is open until the weather conditions and the water level allow the access, except the fall and winter periods, when the rain is very strong.

At the end of the visit at the Alcantara Gorges we will reach the Taormina at the entrance of Catania Gate. From here, the pedestrian area starts with the Corso Umberto (the ancient Roman road “Valeria”) where to discover the charming center of one of the most important Messina tourist attractions, with a guided tour or by your own: you can easily reach the Greek and Roman Amphitheatre, the churches and the most ancient monuments, the most exclusive shops, the famous restaurants, the pastry shops to taste the delicious local dishes.
