Sciacca

Fishing, carnivals and spas may seem like a strange mix of characteristics, but these are the things that really sum up the town of Sciacca

From its port the town climbs up cliffs until it reaches a kind of plateau from which the views out to sea are stunning. Dominating the views inland is Monte Cronio, home to steaming, gurgling tufa caves that for so long have drawn visitors. Nearby up and down the coast are a series of wonderful, relatively uncrowded beaches.

Only a relatively narrow stretch of sea divides Sciacca from North Africa and in many respects, the town owes a great deal to the Arabs who sailed across the Mediterranean in 840.

Today, Sciacca’s main industry is fishing and the fleet in Sciacca is amongst the largest in Italy.

Heading down to the port early in the morning is a real spectacle and the restaurants in Sciacca will be serving up the day’s catch just a few hours later.

Excursion

1/2 Day Valley of the Temples & Kolymbetra Gardens with picnic lunch – 5 and a half hours trip

 

Meet your private driver and embark on a half-day tour to the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as Valley of the Temples where your private guide will be waiting for you. Despite it’s name suggesting a low-lying position, the archaeological site (the largest in the world) actually finds itself on a ridge south of Agrigento. It’s one of the most visited places on the island, as it offers one the most obvious testimony to the presence of ancient Greeks in southern Italy, with temples dating back to the 5th century BC. The main temples that you will visit are: the Temple of Juno, the Temple of Concordia, the Temple of Zeus and the Temple of the Dioscuri. Then, you will visit the Kolymbetra Garden, originally an artificial lake set between sandstone cliffs in a river valley. Now, citrus trees blossom, pomegranates grow wild and large. Wild olives grow as emerald as the surrounding leaves. The lake is now a pool that stands at the heart of the garden as a reminder of the lush past and fertile future of the area. Enjoy an included picnic lunch in this unique location, with arancini, cheeses with home made marmalade, olives and extra virgin olive oil, and fine wines, all in a little corner of paradise among Greek temples. Conclude with a private transfer back to the hotel.
