A walk through its streets and you’ll discover not only wonderful, timeless monuments but also cheerful people: the city is actually known for its nightlife, that – some say – can’t be beaten even by the great Palermo. Typical food must absolutely be tasted: arancini, pasta alla norma (with tomato sauce, ricotta cheese and eggplants), granita (try it for breakfast, with a brioche!) and horse meat, very popular in this corner of Sicily. It’s almost impossible mentioning every single reason you should book one of our villas in Catania. The sea is wonderful as well: you can enjoy it at Catania’s most famous beach, the “playa”, as well as in the beautiful, picturesque towns nearby: Aci Castello, Aci Trezza and Acireale are really delightful destinations for the discovery of pleasant rocky or sandy beaches as well as historical ancient hamlets full of folklore, traditions and precious monuments. In this area you can find some of our comfortable family villas in Sicily. And as you turn your head and look up, there it is: the tallest volcano in Europe, mt. Etna. This astonishing mountain gives a whole peculiar look to the view you get from the city (especially when it’s active and covered with snow), and the mountainside houses some really great destinations. “Paesi etnei” are tiny little villages lying close to the volcano, famous for their quiet and relaxing atmosphere, as well as for their delicious typical products such as honey, mushrooms, wines and much more. Valverde, Milo, Zafferana Etnea, Piedimonte Etneo, Randazzo… a holiday here means slowing down to enjoy peace and quiet, delicious food and some of the most enchanting scenarios of the whole island.
