Excellent opportunity to see the city higher up. Worth the 3 euros! You could feel the history in the air with the music in the background from the man playing the guitar in the street!

We took the red bus to go there (possible also to get there by city bus) and we had a great time to admire the view, small streets of the town and the walk to Aci Trezza along the sea. I did not expect such a nice place!

Picturesque medieval castle jutting out into the sea. Beautiful shoreline. For us nature lovers, this was the best attraction in Catania! [NOTE: Mount Etna (one of the highlights of our visit to Sicily - see my review), is NOT really in Catania, although it is listed as such on Trip Advisor.]

A beautiful little town/village not very far from Catania, with beautiful sea view. Easy to reach by bus 534 (only 1 EUR) from Catania. Same bus goes to Acistrezza and the distance between them can be done on foot, to enjoy the beautiful coast view.

It is easier to get to neither to get out. Really there are no timetables at the bus stop so you do not understand what direction to take. Another thing that buses go by different street and nobody to ask because only very little people speak English. My experience by getting out of this area, was some time for waiting... More

I find this area is a little overestimated by the locals so I'll not give 5 stars. However, it's worth a visit if you have some 1 -3 spare hours and fancy a walk by the sea.

A friend and I had looked forward to a quiet stay in a small Sicilian town, and lots of walking, this was very disappointing, the main town in the small square was very pretty, but there is nothing else, and I was shocked everywhere we went at the amount of Graffiti on all the buildings, passed the castle on the...

After the chaos and bustle of driving through Catania it was a delightful change to stop for lunch in this small seaside town. The tiny Norman castle is worth a visit for the fine coastal view from the top and its only a few euros. There is no beach but you can get down to the black rocks at the... More
