Situated on the coast and brimming with history, what could be better than a holiday at the beautiful city of Acireale in Sicily. This spa town sits on the North East coast within the province of Catania and is a great attraction for holidaymakers looking for more than just a beach vacation. Here visitors will find numerous different places to stay including self catering accommodation, villas, apartments and camp sites.

Things to do on holiday to Acireale, Italy

The coastline in Acireale is mainly rocky but holidaymakers can enjoy a spot of fishing with squid and occasionally sea bass caught here. It is possible sunbathe but visitors may prefer to take a relatively easy car journey to the nearby resorts of Taormina and Giardini Naxos, where there are nice beaches to sunbathe on and take a dip in the sea.

There is plenty on offer here for sports enthusiasts including tennis, golf, swimming, snorkelling and cycling. With some wonderful coastal views and Mount Etna not far away, this is also a popular place for hiking and horse riding. A great time to visit Acireale is early February during the season of carnival, which is famous throughout Sicily for its spectacular floats, costumes, and parades.

Being an Italian island on the coast there is naturally plenty of inns and restaurants serving pasta and seafood dishes.    The town has many elegant shops and boutiques as well as ice cream parlours.

Another enjoyable trip can be made to Teatro dei Pupi (the Puppet Theatre), which puts on animated shows at the Museo dei Pupi dell’Opra, just off Acireale. The gardens at Villa Belvedere have a panoramic terrace offering wonderful views of Mount Etna and the sea.

Fabulous views front the sea back Etna. Very well equipped.

4 of 5
Giuseppe met us on time. The house was beautifully clean and had everything we needed. The village was sadly a bit run down but the locals were friendly and Stazzo (next village) had a restaurant and cafe that were excellent. A car is essential but the streets are narrow and Italian drivers are quite aggressive. The only odd thing was the charging system whereby the rent that was advertised was apparently for 2 persons in a 7 bed house. Any more than 2 were charged at 12€ per night. We have never encountered this before. I have been renting appartments for about 30 years. On the whole we had a good time and it was very interesting.
