Local attractions

The campsite is conveniently set by the sea, for beach holidays under the Italian sun or to use as a base to explore Sicily's coast.

The town of Acireale, famous for its churches, is within walking distance. It also has the Chiazzette walking trail, connecting the town to Santa Maria La Scala via countryside and sea views. Once at the village, stop and have seafood at the harbour trattorias.

The site is within the Etna regional park, and the volcano is only a short drive away.

Catania is also a short drive away and Syracuse and Messina are a little further afield. Another good option is Taormina, to explore its archaeological sites.
