Scala Dei Turchi ~ by Daniela

Today we saw Piero having fun with his friends on a water bike (his passion).


Piero and his friends were going to the sea in Sicily in front of the area called Scala dei Turchi.




The Scala dei Turchi is a rocky wall (cliff) rising over the sea along the coast between Realmonte and Porto Empedocle in the province of Agrigento.

The Scala dei Turchi has a wavy and irregular shape, with sweet and rounded lines.

The name comes from the past raids of Turkish pirates, who were sheltered in this area less than the winds and representing a safer landing.

The beach is famous for the candida and dazzling color of its rocks; is a protected area but in the past it has been threatened several times by tourism …



In the first video, Piero says:


“Guys, Good morning to everyone, from La Scala dei Turchi


And one of his friends says:


“Look what spectacle we have here in Sicily guys”


In the second video Piero presents his friends.

  1. It’s always a treat to see our Sweet Sicilian having fun with water sports. Daniella, thanks for your great contributions to the Flight Crew site.

    1. Thank you Mary, you are very kind, certainly that it is wonderful to see Piero so cheerful and carefree while enjoying the company of his friends. When he is in Sicily he can not stand out of the water.

      1. Penina, I’m a little afraid of these water bikes, but if I can go up behind Piero and embrace him strong strong, that’s all ok.

  2. If you are ever lucky enough to meet all of our Boys, they are always the nicest, sweetest, kindest, talented young men anywhere!!!

    1. Ann, in August I will go to Sicily, hope to be so lucky to meet at least one of our guys, it will be very difficult, but I cross my fingers.

      1. oh Daniela…. that would be fun…. i hope you meet them…. at least one of them…..

  3. Daniela, I hope you meet all three of them. I just love seeing Piero having fun with his friends. And he just can’t seem to stay away from the water!

    1. Maybe I could meet them, at that time the only one I could possibly meet in Taormina is Piero, I’ll have fun watching him run on the water bike.

  4. What a beautiful place! No wonder our guys love their country as much as they do, it is breathtaking!!! Thank you to everyone who contributes to the Flight Crew to make it enjoyable for all of us!!!!
