Sampieri rises on the southeast coast of Sicily and is part of the beaches of Scicli. The location is known for being the ideal destination for those who want to spend a relaxing holiday, with every kind of service at hand. However, what is striking about the place is undoubtedly the unspoilt charm of the seaside village, whose origins date back to the 6th century BC.
If you are fond of antiquity, Sampieri is the right place where to visit the numerous diggings that brought to light many prehistoric pieces.
Colonized by the Greeks first and then by the Arabs, the legend says that its name, of Christian origins, derives from San Pietro, which would have been at the port while going to Rome.
The peculiarity of the coast is its golden and very fine sand which extends for about two kilometers. There are several beaches that offer all types of fcilities: umbrellas, sunbeds and bars. For nature lovers, behind the beach there is a large pine forest where you can have a picnic and enjoy a little refreshment.
Among the things to see in Sampieri we cannot miss its most important symbol, which is certainly the Fornace Penna. Destroyed by a fire in the early 1900s, the ruins of the building have recently been used as the scene for some shots of the TV series Il Commissario di Montalbano.
Furthermore, always close to the Sampieri Furnace, it is possible to visit other ruins, the ones of an ancient fountain historically used by boats to refuel.
Spending your holidays in Sampieri is also synonymous with fun and a journey through traditions! In May, for example, it is possible to taste the typical product of the place during its festival: the Tomato!
To reach Sampieri you can use the bus, the train or the car. From Palermo it is possible to take the train to Ragusa and then the bus to the village. Otherwise, it is possible to reach Scicli and from here take an urban bus to the beach of Sampieri.
