Scala dei Turchi
The 'Turkish Staircase' is a blinding white limestone formation formed by the weather and backed up by a stunning beach.
Even if you are not a beach-goer it is worth coming out here. All you need is a towel, sun cream and a fully charged camera as the views are breathtaking. There is a restaurant nearby if you are feeling peckish.
The Scala dei Turchi is about an hour drive from Palermo and 15 minutes from Agrigento. There is only one sign, so do look out. It takes a short walk following the trail and you will hardly believe that nature can create such a shape. The Turkish Staircase is since 2007 a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
There is no better way of spending one (or two ...) evening here and watch the sunset with the only sound being the sound of the waves.....don't forget two glasses and a bottle of Prosecco.
