If you come to agrigento it would be disappointing to miss this. We stayed an hour which was ample time to walk down to the beach and along the coast and up the steps. This area has the best beach I have seen in Sicily....More

The steps are stunning, and a true natural marvel. They are unsurprisingly very glarey and completely exposed to the sun. Access is via stairway leading down from the road, not well signposted, which brings you out about 400-500 metres down the beach from the steps....More

Recommend paying for parking at Majorta Beach and walking along the beach 15 minutes to the Turkish steps (no stairs). The moonscape/ alien rock formations overlooking the sea and sky make for great photography. After taking pictures, we returned to Majorta and renting comfortable sun...More

I do always recommend renting a car when travelling. If you are not on your own, it can fit better in your budget that public transport and you don't rely on timetables. Rent fares can vary greatly depending upon the region... More
