Marzamemi


Marzamemi is a small fishing village located in the southeastern tip of Sicily, a few kilometers from the town of Noto. This ancient fishing village is characterized by an enchanting atmosphere, making it one of the most picturesque places on the Sicilian coast.

Its beautiful sea, with clear waters and intense colors, is one of the main attractions of the area, but Marzamemi offers much more. Here it is possible to visit the ancient tuna fisheries, which were once the heart of the local economy, and discover the tradition of bluefin tuna fishing, which is still practiced during the summer months.

Marzamemi is also famous for its cuisine, which is based on the freshness of the local catch and the quality of traditional Sicilian ingredients. The village of Marzamemi is characterized by its whitewashed houses and narrow, winding streets, which lead to the main square, where bars, restaurants and souvenir stores are located. Although in recent years it has become very popular with tourists, it is definitely worth a visit.


Discovering the 7 Aci


The 7 Sicilian Aci are seven ancient seaside villages located along the eastern coast of Sicily, on the slopes of Mount Etna: Acireale, Aci Castello, Aci Catena, Aci Bonaccorsi, Aci San Filippo, Aci Sant'Antonio and Acitrezza. These enchanting places, which take their name from the word "aci", which means "rock" in ancient Greek, have been the scene of important historical and cultural events over the centuries.

Here it is possible to admire a sea with volcanic seabed, which offers spectacular underwater views and a unique experience for diving enthusiasts. In fact, this area is characterized by the presence of numerous rock formations of volcanic origin, which extend along the coast creating coves and beaches of wild beauty. These villages are rich in history and culture, and offer the opportunity to discover ancient local traditions, including the processing of red coral, which is still exported around the world.
