I love the attitude of the Italian people toward the evening stroll The Via Ethea with its shops, restaurants, gelaterias and pastry shops make this the perfect place for you passeggiata and people watching.

The heart of city that links Elephant square and many attractions are situated on the boulevard. If you get lost in the city find this boulevard and you will be relieved.
