Description - What to expect

Catania Cycling is the best way to have fun and explore Catania's old town, riding between baroque buildings and ruins of ancient times. Meet your guide and pedal the downtown along intriguing trails along the coast. Arrive at Aci Castello and see the iconic castle built on a lava basalt rock, dated about 500 years ago.

Continue your Catania cycling and reach the fishing village of Aci Trezza. Here you can see the Faraglioni dei Ciclopi and the Isola Lachea. These lava rocks have inspired Greek mythology and the village itself was the setting in a modern novel by Giovanni Verga.
