Porto Empedocle Vacations
Visiting this popular region can be not only relaxing, but an adventure too; so why not hit the road and explore a couple of the other charming cities, towns and villages in the vicinity of Porto Empedocle. Ribera, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southeast, and Santo Stefano Quisquina, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the south of Porto Empedocle are good places to visit if you're keen on learning more about this region.
Once you've fully explored Porto Empedocle, check out the nearest center. Agrigento is 3 miles (5 kilometers) away and is home to sights like Chiesa di Santa Maria dei Greci, Abbazia di Santo Spirito and Palazzo dei Filippini. Temple of Heracles, Agrigento Town Hall and Temple of Juno Lacinia are also good places to spend time.
Sample a little culture, learning and lore with a little sunshine and fresh air at the region's fabulous open-air museums, gardens and lighthouses. Head to Sicily's palaces, art museums and theaters. These are great destinations to explore, especially when the weather is less than perfect.
When you hear the call of the great outdoors, follow the lead of active locals and spend the day hiking and mountain climbing. Sicily offers plenty of activities for those who enjoy water. Kite surfing and sailing are some of the popular water-based activities here.
Before you head back home, you'll be bidding Porto Empedocle a fond and teary Ciao (farewell).
