Directions to Aci Castello and Aci Trezza
Aci Castello is a small village on the Ionian coast of Sicily and known for its black Norman castle and picturesque square. The views from the castle, built of lava stones from Mount Etna, are spectacular.The castle was founded by the Normans in the second half of the eleventh century and is perched on the top of a volcanic rock.
If you keep walking few kilometres north along the rugged coast you will encounter another fishing village. Aci Trezza is mainly known as the scene of the events in Giovanni Verga's famous novel 'Malavoglia'. The Faraglioni or Scogli dei Ciclopi (Rocks of the Cyclops) are, according to legend, huge pieces of lava rocks that the one-eyed giant Cyclops threw at Ulysses.
Both villages are located at the most picturesque part of the coastline between Catania and Taormina. Travellers who want to plunge in Sicilian daily life will find a good range of holiday apartments, B&Bs and hotels in the area. Have a look here
