These white limestone and clay cliffs are called la Scala dei Turchi–the Stairs of the Turks. They are near Agrigento, and in June, during Experience Sicily’s Soulful and Sunny Sicily experiential tour, I’ll be bringing a small group to swim here after we explore the UNESCO Heritage Site Valley of the Temples. Perhaps we’ll find some sea urchins like those pictured… but if not, we can certainly eat fresh ones on some pasta during the trip! Won’t you join me? Contact me at experiencesicily.com for more details.
