Itinerary & Notes
Our tour starts in Aci Trezza, a small charming fishing village just 10km north of Catania and a short drive from Taormina. The symbol of Aci Trezza and its crystal clear sea are the Faraglioni dei Ciclopi, eight rock stacks that legend has it have been there, just off the town's beach, since the giant Cyclops Polyphemus hurled them against Ulysses as he escaped by ship. The village is also celebrated as the setting of I Malavoglia, Giovanni Verga's 19th-century literary masterpiece of life in a poor, isolated fishing community. Today it boasts a lively seafront and a number of good restaurants.
