Why Guendalina chose Fiumefreddo
Borgo degli Aranci is a perfect gateway to exploring not only the looming volcano but also its many interesting towns and villages. There are a great number of excellent walks in the area and many visits to be made: Taormina, Catania, the Alcantara Gorge and, slightly further afield, Siracusa.
The baroque town of Noto, the quiet beaches of Vendicari and Capo Passero to the south and Messina to the north are all confortably reachable for day trips.
There are also charming fishing villages and several beaches dotted along the coastline around Fiumefreddo, including Marina di Cottone, San Marco and Fondachello (just south).
Further north at Taormina there is a good selection of sandy and pebbly beaches, rocky coves and grottoes: Mazzarò, Letojanni and Giardini-Naxos.
Further south towards Catania there are the charming towns of Riposto, Acireale, Aci Trezza and Aci Castello where the coast is rocky.
