Acireale, a pearl on the ionian sea


Acireale is a small baroque city overlooking the Ionian sea from a natural terrace made of molten rock. It is located a few kilometers from Catania, but it owns an original identity and a mythical history. Important figures, such as Quasimodo, Rossellini and Ingmar Bergman, all sat in the central square of the town, considered one of the most beautiful ones all over Italy. This part of Sicily has been considered as the centre of the world for several centuries and still today it is possible to breathe the air of culture and art, while enjoying beautiful landscapes as far as the eye can see.
