We visited from the Sortino entrance, with our toddler in our back-carrier. The site is fascinating though we scaled our planned walk down to a there-and-back to the Ankataron archaeological site, rather than the bigger round trip we'd planned: paths were uneven and in places...More

Off the beaten path, Necropolo Pantalica affords a magical experience. Be sure that you have a good trail map. We hiked from the second parking lot (I think) in from the Ferla entrance using a book of Sicilian hiking trails as our guide. The descent...More
