Walking around Aci Castello Coast line was pleasant.. Its a typical Sicily place where there isnt sandy beach but just rocks.. Many locals there..Also, I paid 3euro to go up to the castle.. Good view but nothing much.. I spent only 30 minutes there...

Just a few miles north of the city of Catania. Beautiful coastline & marina dominated by ruins of the prominent old Castle from where the name derives.

I liked the view and there are three or four nice hotels along the shore. There is very little beach, mostly just lava flows into the sea but our hotel was built on one of these and it was unique and well done. Other than that most of the trip was back in catania as the city is limited.

This is a beautiful town with a lovely Norman castle built on volcanic rock, rocky beaches and a very busy town square. The community here is very close and it was lovely to be in the square in the early evenings watching the locals, chat, eat and have fun, The sea is calm here and we all had fun swimming... More

Actually we did not spend much time visiting Aci Castello. The first time we came at the very beginning of our Etna&Taormina tour and took some coffee in the small establishment next to the norman castle. The second couple has no interest in visiting castle. So we returned in the evening. The castle itself is only partly preserved, but there... More

We were on a bus to Aci Castello, lovely fishing village outside of Catania. We were in love with the Norman Castle, dating back to the Middle Ages, 1076. The town developed around the castle. The scenery is breathtaking! It is either the beginning or the end of the Riviera dei Ciclopi. A little further down the coast you can... More
