Alcantara Gorge

Alcantara Gorge

See one of Sicily’s most stunning natural beauty spots on the east coast, close to Mount Etna and around 20km from Taormina. The unusual rock formations of the Alcantara Gorge have been formed by lava and water flowing from the volcano and the Alcantara River, one of the island’s only rivers that flows all year round.
