The Catanese Coast: From the Simeto to the Alcantara

A coast of 70 km, whose variety is startling. We are not seeing it. Follow us: From the Serra del Re in the Nebrodi, once it gets the water from the Saracen torrent, the Simeto flows for hundred kilometres and then flows into the Ionian waters, twelve kilometres away from Catania.
From the river mouth to Catania’s port it expands a sandy strip of almost 9 kilometres.

Etna

Etna
The wonders of Etna

Etna, a land of myths and legends. The ancients looked to the mountain with awe and respect. Had made the home of Vulcan, god of fire and the Cyclops.
Its meaning is therefore lost in the mists of time and ancient languages. The Arabs were so impressed by it as "the mountain of mountains" ( "Mount Etna"), the mountain for excellence.
