A walk on Lungo Mare...


One of the many beauties of Sicily is that we can enjoy the snow of Etna one day and then a peaceful walk by the sea another day!


Along the Lungo Mare between Riposto and Torre Archirafi we often enjoy an early morning walk, watching the sun rise. The Regional Province of Catania has also created a Cycling Route that goes along the seaside road for 12,5 km. Starting from the village of Torre Archirafi to the mouth of the Alcantara river. Along the path you pass through the harbour town of Riposto and the Fiumefreddo river nature reserve. Bring along your bike and enjoy the view!



Fresh fruits, vegetables and fish can be bought every working day in the morning at the fish market in Riposto. This is located just in front of the harbour, at the corner of Corso Italia. Riposto is still one of the most important fishing harbours on the east coast of Sicily: fish are brought here directly from boats every morning at dawn.

I have explored your area a little bit, but as hinted at by your photos, need to do some more! And it really isn't so far away...I am just down the road in Aci Castello.
