the city is pretty nice and typical for this region, but Normans castle built over 900 years ago is breathtaking ... it looks like a great stone vessel, entering the bay into the city ...

This castle was great to visit .. we were staying 3 minutes away ! Once up the steps there was a whole lot more castle to see. It was the backdrop to many weddings whilst we were in Aci Costello. It was also great to look up at when swimming off the rocks .

We went to Aci Castello from Catania by bus. It is a 30 minute ride but the scenery is nice, and you get to see some typical Italian places.
The castle is nice, though it was closed for visiting when we got there.

The little town of Acicastello is what you expect to see when you visit the island of Sicily. Nice seaside, with a huge promontory where a big castle lie on top, good spot for a refreshing ice-cream.
There are also couple of lovely fish restaurants nearby.

Nice aspects but nothing to write home about. Apart from one room there were very few artefacts of interest.

Beautiful little place with scenic views of the water, flowers, castle, island of Cyclops...little restaurants, gelato shops...parks, just an all round great place to spend the day hanging out with family & friends. Nice little 'park' near the castle to picnic with gelato & a restaurant should you prefer! Great place to take fotos!
