A one in a lifetime experience... we actually walked all the way down and back .... it was a lot of effort but definitely worth it! There is also a navetta available.

As we were lodging in the hotel just above the gorge, we managed to get there early in the morning (the sun didn't reach the bottom yet), so we were alone. Nice walk up the stream and refreshing bath in under a waterfall. When we...More

This is a must-do in Civita. The canyon is spectacular viewed from town or from the Devil's Bridge. It is quite the walk down on stone stairs. Without knowing for sure how far we would go, we hiked downstream from the bridge on the town...More

You can go there on foot or by car. It's a fantastic place in Civita. You should do canyoning there with Roberto de Marco...

We in the area call this our "little Grand Canyon", and I have to say that some of the views are impressive. One of the big differences with the original one in Arizona and Utah is the fact that in the US you can comfortably...More
