The area

By Giovanni Vallone (President of MammaSicily, writer, author)

The house is located in the lovely town of Pedara, on the eastern slope of Etna, just 10 kilometers away from Catania.

I suggest you to enjoy the Piazza Don Bosco, heart of the downtown where you will find restaurants, markets, a vivid lifestyle and a wonderful public garden.

We are in the eastern side of Sicily, and two masterpieces dominate the landscapes; the sea and Etna volcano, joined by something bigger thant them: the blue Sicilian sky!

Etna Park (Unesco’s), with its inactiv volcanos (the sons of Etna), caves, forests, lava grounds … lasta 10 km’s

Catania, with its gorgeous Via Etnea and its outdoor markets, lasts 10 km’s.

The Playa (beaches) too lasts 10 km’s.

I suggest you to get a visit to Acitrezza and Acicastello (5 km’s), fishermen hamlets, where the lava flow has painted a castle and basalt giants (sea stacks).

Taormina, the pearl of Sicily, is almost 30 km’s away: it’s a magic place with the amazing Isolabella and its narrow streets rich in history, a sort of vintage atmosphere and fashion: cool!

Siracusa (Unesco’s), and its Greek masterpieces it’s almost 60 km’s away.

Another tips is the visit of Pantalica (Unesco’s), with its more than 3000 graves carved on the rock, a river, a forest and a sort of mistery all around.

At a glance: Acireale (Baroque style, 5 km), Savoca (The Godfather movie’s  spot, 40 km), Brucoli (sea, 40 km), Megara Ibla (archaeology, 40 km), Randazzo (40 km), Giardini Naxos (sea, 30 km), Cavagrande del Cassibile (nature, 60 km)

Its time to eat something and my tipi s to do not miss the Pasta alla Norma and to have, at least once, a typical Sicilian breakfast: granita and brioche!

And, of course, fish, fish, fish … and visit the outdoor fish markets (Riposto, Acitrezza, Catania).
