- An extraordinary experience - a definite must if you are in the area!
I popped in to see if it was open and even though in theory it was closed for the midday break, Michelangelo was extremely kind to take me around the museum, the only visitor. His passion is amazing and his stories, poetry and songs are touching - all these made me feel part of his world and part of Sicily as I was immersed in this world for the duration of the visit, and the rest of the day. And although the name of the museum suggests it's related to the sea, it's only one aspect - it's about life in Sicily, about love - love of family, people, culture and Sicily itself. Amazing, thank you so much Michelangelo!Written December 13, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Doubly appreciable: for the beauty of the place, and because a social movement made it again accessible to citizensIn an area like this, many are the clues that lead to reflect on the gap between the beauty of nature and the poor management of it. E. g., the sea promenade in the neighboring Porticello village is in fact ugly and smelly, the road leading from Porticello to Aspra runs along the coast but the sea is not accessible due to the second houses that prevent (probably unlawfully) almost every access.
Luckily, a new hope for some improvement has been recently given by the story of this "Arco azzurro" (Blue Arc). Until recently also it had been progressively closed to any access from the public street; as I understand it, thanks to some citizens' engagement, a gate was recently reopened by the municipality - managed by young volunteers - again allowing access to this geological wonder.
It's a bit difficult to locate the access point, you probaly will need to ask for information in the area around (so we did). But on the spot, the satisfaction for this recovery of public access to the heritage is such that I would willingly pay even more than the inexpensive 2 euro entry ticket.
It is hoped that this situation will remain stable, and that the lack of civicness will not overwhelm it again.Written November 10, 2017This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- This is a typical Italian fishing village with brightly coloured boats against a backdrop of sea and mountains.
There is a small strip of sand and safe waters to swim in, there are also rock pools. There are a few shops and kiosks along the front.
Parking is possible along the front.Written June 21, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
