Full description
Starting from Catania, aboard your mountain bike, you will admire the architectural beauty of this ancient city, a treasure trove of treasures dating back to different historical periods. You will then move to the coastal area, until you get to Aci Castello, a quaint fishing village that takes its name from a real castle, built on a rock of basalt lava, formed during an underwater eruption about 500,000 years ago. Heading towards Aci Trezza, you will discover a small fishing village, which is the backdrop to the enchanting island Lachea and the famous Faraglioni dei Ciclopi, lava buildings, born from the same underwater eruption, linked to an ancient legend: it is said that they were thrown by the Cyclops Polyphemus against Ulysses, after his blindness. To conclude this tour, you can finally give yourself a regenerating dip in the sea or even opt for a refreshing and tasty homemade granita, before returning to Catania.
