Catania and Aci Trezza bike tour


Embark on a captivating exploration starting in the enchanting historic center of Catania, a city renowned for its nine rebirths caused by as many destructions and reconstructions on the same grounds. Catania, akin to a treasure chest, unveils its buried history, acting as the custodian of secrets yet to be unveiled; truly a city with a myriad of faces.

As we depart the charming streets of the historic center, our route takes us along the coastal path, guiding us to Aci Castello. The name itself is derived from the iconic castle perched on a lava basalt rock, a testament to an ancient underwater eruption dating back half a million years. Today, this castle stands as a Civic Museum, brimming with history and charm.

Our journey continues towards Aci Trezza, a picturesque fishing village providing a backdrop to the enchanting Lachea Island and the majestic Faraglioni dei Ciclopi. These captivating lava formations emerged from the same underwater eruption that shaped the Aci Castello rock. Greek mythology narrates that these stacks were flung by Polyphemus at Odysseus, an episode immortalized in the “Odyssey.” Furthermore, these locales are intricately linked to Verga’s novel “I Malavoglia,” infusing a literary dimension into the historical narrative.

Following this enthralling journey through history, a delightful interlude awaits. Choose to rejuvenate with a dip in the sea or savor the Sicilian atmosphere with a delectable granita. We conclude our day by returning to the pulsating heart of Catania, carrying with us memories of breathtaking landscapes, captivating stories, and unforgettable flavors.
