Full description

Explore the Riviera dei Ciclopi, the scene of Ulysses' adventures, on a half-day sailing excursion.

In the company of an experienced skipper, you will sail between the majestic stacks of Acitrezza and the clear waters of the Bay of Arcile, where you can dive into a dreamlike sea and relax with an aperitif on board.

It will be a unique opportunity to discover the beauty of Catania from a new perspective!

What we will do

Departure is at 9 a.m. in Catania, where we will meet the skipper who will accompany us on this excursion. We will get on the sailboat and leave the port heading towards the Faraglioni of Acitrezza or the Bay of Arcile, depending on weather and wind conditions.

During the navigation, we will admire the beautiful Riviera dei Ciclopi, one of the richest areas of Sicily in terms of history and legends, and, having arrived at our destination, we will drop anchor for a bathing stop of about an hour. Between dips in the clear waters, we will also sunbathe on deck.

Back on board, the skipper will offer us an aperitif of local products such as rice salad, cheese, cold cuts and fruit accompanied by beer, wine or water. After that, we will have another couple of hours to swim or relax on board with our new companions.

Finally, we will depart in the direction of the port, with the skipper who will tell us curiosities and stories about these places. We will return to Catania around 14.00, after about 5 hours of touring.
