2. Catania: Full-Day Boat Trip to Acitrezza with Lunch
Begin your adventure by meeting your captain on board your boat, decked out with three double cabins, a bathroom with a shower, an outside shower, a kitchen, and a refrigerator.
Set sail to Ulysses’ Caves. Be amazed by the gorgeous underwater scenery of vibrant blues and greens as you sail past these breathtaking lava-formed caves.
Next, sail toward Acitrezza, and pass under the medieval castle of Acicastello. Enjoy a spectacular view of the castle by the sea. Marvel at the characteristic pillow lavas found under the castle due to the rapid cooling of submarine eruptions.
Once you reach Acitrezza, see a marine reserve dubbed "The Cyclopean Isles,” which is only accessible by pedal boat. If you wish, for an extra charge, reserve a pedal boat and visit The Cyclopean Isles.
If the boat isn't available or you prefer not to use it, visit the charming little village of Acitrezza for one hour. When you arrive back on board, eat a delicious traditional lunch including an appetizer, pasta with mussels, fruit, water, and local white wine.
Finally, during your return trip, take a short stop for another quick swim before arriving back in Catania at around 6:00 PM.
