  • I've been there so many times, the square as the small village are really welcoming, I also recommend to eat pizza, a nice walk in the summer is a very good idea to relax and breathe pure air, and then let us not forget the sea that splendor. I recommend it to all the tourists in the world. ...

  • Not the most interesting place, but with the Castle offers a very nice view, both on the sea and the city. From there, just saw the coolest Club "Mantèca" and set off at night (and not shaken:)

  • ACI castello turned out to be a surprise. We caught up with a pleasant walk in the Sun in January from aci trezza, crossing gardens of palms and tropical plants. beautiful square with balcony overlooking the sea and especially the scenic Castle, whose visit proved to be very interesting from a historical point of view, that botanical and landscape. amazing sights and good recovery site that also offers a small archaeological museum and a beautiful botanical garden full of fascinating variety of Succulents. recommended activities to children and adults.
