Situated on the strait of Sicily, Porto Empedocle is a town and commune belonging to Italy. The ferry routes departing the port are to neighbouring islands off the south west coast of Italy, lasting between three and ten hours.
A sleepy town that revolves around the ancient harbour, it’s easy to spend a few days in Porto Empedocle just basking in the tranquillity. Whilst Italy, and more specifically Sicily, have adapted its infrastructure and environment to adhere to the relentless demand of modern tourism, Porto Empedocle seems proud of its rich heritage and simple, traditional architecture. Beautiful religious monuments line the town centre; the Mother Church and the Carlo V Tower combine a myriad of ethnicities and cultures in their structural design.
After a day perusing the sights, the coastline is decorated with beautiful beaches that are ideal for whiling away a few hours under the Mediterranean sun. Even in the height of summer the beaches remain relatively untouched – mass tourism has yet to infiltrate Porto Empedocle which holds much of its appeal. After a day of sunbathing and exploring the shoreline, a few fine quality restaurants are dotted about, serving delicious seafood fresh from the waters.
It is more than possible to cover the entirety of Porto Empedocle by foot, which is a pleasant option when considering the idyllic surroundings.
