We are talking about Catania and we cannot overlook Etna, “a muntagna” as it is defined by the locals. Most tourists drive up from Nicolosi or Zafferana Etnea and head towards the Rifugio Sapienza.
On the slopes of Etna, there is the so-called ” chestnut tree of the hundred horses ” which seems to have cast its shadow over the village of Sant’Alfio for 1000 years.
Remaining on the naturalistic theme, you can opt for a visit to the Radicepura botanical park, in Giarre , which collects 800 species and over 5000 varieties.
If, on the other hand, you prefer the rocky beach, head north from Catania airport with your rental car . Here the seafront streches between beach resorts, sheer cliffs and secluded coves. Do not miss the characteristic stacks of Acitrezza , the beach of Torre Pozzillo and further north the beach of Praiola , near Giarre, with a high tuff ridge overlooking crystal clear waters.
