Location and possibilities:
Acireale is an ancient thermal small town situated on the eastern coast of Sicily, 20 Km on the north of Catania. Its history is characterized by the
earthquakes and the eruptions of the Etna that, several times, have upset the order of the territory. The last reconstruction - after the earthquake in the
1693 - has conferred to the place, the actual splendid Baroque look that made of Acireale, one of the most beautiful places of Sicily. Worth visiting are:
San Sebastian Church, the Zelantea art gallery, the theatre of the Puppets Opera, the Cathedral square that presents an enchanting Baroque scenery;
we remember the Carnival that, with its allegorical floats of papier-mâché, attracts visitors from all the world. In the surroundings you can admire:
landscapes offered by the volcanic hinterland, view of the next Cyclops's Riviera, fishing-villages, like Santa Tecla, Stazzo, Santa Maria la
Scala…situated at the foot of the Timpa, a ridge of millennial layers of lava overlapped, that stands until 200 meters. Till today the Timpa, covered by a
typical rich vegetation, represents a naturalistic and geological heritage of an extraordinary charm. Stazzo
Stazzo, a former small fishing village, is a district of Acireale.
In the summertime it is a lively, in autumn and in springtime a quiet place by the sea.
