Surrounding & history: Acireale is a small ancient thermal town situated on the eastern coast of Sicily, 20 Km to the north of Catania. Its history is characterized by the earthquakes and the eruptions of Etna that, several times, have upset the order of the territory. The last reconstruction - after the earthquake in 1693 - has given a splendid Baroque look to Acireale, one of the most

beautiful locations in Sicily. Worth visiting are: San Sebastian Church, the Zelantea art gallery, the theatre of the Puppets Opera, the Cathedral square that presents enchanting Baroque scenery; we remember the Carnival that, with its floats of papier-mâché, attracts visitors from all over 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 reaches 200 meters upwards. Till today the Timpa, covered by a typical rich vegetation, represents a natural and geological heritage of an extraordinary charm.

Catania is Km 16 away, Siracusa is Km 80 away, Ragusa is Km 120 away, Agrigento is Km 180 away,Taormina is Km 35 away, Messina is Km 80 away, Palermo is Km 240 away. A perfect place to spend your holidays in Italy.

Why Owner / Porperty Manager chose Catania

The house is settled in Guardia Mangano a village in the district of Acireale, small ancient thermal town situated at the foot of Mount Etna on the eastern coast of Sicily, about 20 km north of Catania. The last reconstruction of the town - after the earthquake in 1693 - has given a splendid Baroque look to Acireale. In the surroundings you can admire amazing landscapes offered by the volcanic hinterland and view of the next fishing-villages like Santa Tecla, Stazzo, Pozzillo, Santa Maria la Scala situated at the foot of the 'Timpa', a ridge of millennial layers of lava overlapped covered by a typical rich vegetation. It's a strategically superb position. The airport is 25 km away, the motorway 5 km and the SS114 only 0.5 km away. From here it's easy to reach the Lemons Riviera and the wonderful Cyclops Riviera with its old fishing villages (Acitrezza and Acicastello). Taormina and the 'Gole' of the River Alcantara, all tourist attractions known for their natural beauty, are within a 20 minute drive.The whole scene is dominated by the awe-inspiring hulk of Mount Etna rising up in all her majesty. The north and south faces of Etna can be reached easily in little more than half an hour. Car hire is recommended but is possible to move by train: the railway station is few meters away from the B&B. In a day trip by car Siracusa, Piazza Armerina, Caltagirone, Vulcano, Lipari, Ragusa, Scicli, Modica, Cefalù can be reached too.
