ACIREALE is an ancient small spa town situated on the eastern coast of Sicily, 20 Km on the north of Catania. Its history is shaped by the earthquakes and the eruptions of Mount Etna that, several times, have upset the landscape. The last reconstruction - after the earthquake in the 1693 - has conferred to the area the actual splendid Baroque appearance that made Acireale one of the most beautiful places in Sicily. Worth visiting are: San Sebastian Church, the Zelantea art gallery, the theatre of the Puppets Opera, the Cathedral square which offers an enchanting Baroque architecture; we remember the Carnival which, 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 overlapping lava, that rises up to 200 meters. Even today the Timpa, covered by a typical rich vegetation, represents a naturalistic and geological heritage of an extraordinary charm.
