Departing from Palermo, gear up for a full-day trip to Agrigento and the Scale of the Turks. Head first to the Temple Valley in Agrigento, one of the most important archeological sites in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Admire the finest of all ancient Greek sites, including the Doric Temples and the ruins of the ancient city of Akragas.
Among the many stairways you know, this is definitely one of the most unusual. You have probably already realized that this is not a real ladder, but a spectacular stretch of coast, that, thanks to its peculiarity and history, has become an icon of the Sicilian seaside tourism.
This white cliff is located along the stretch of sea between Realmonte and Porto Empedocle and its rock is made of a soft limestone and a blinding white marl. The sea, taking advantage of this sparkling white, will be showing off its deep blue. The more daring can trek the stairway to the beach to the west, and will then be rewarded with a less frequented place for bathing.
