Mount Etna - skiing on a volcano: Torre Archirafi is also an excellent base from which to explore Mount Etna and its surroundings. The villages of Etna, such as Trecastagni, Zafferana Etnea e Randazzo, are famous for their ancient lava flows, the architecture of their seventeenth century churches, their delicious local produce and the hospitality of the villagers. Situated 700 meters above sea level, they are a favorite retreat of the city dwellers who, in summer are in search of cool, fresh air, while in winter are in search of snow for skiing. Few people are aware that Etna is a popular location for skiers in winter.

Torre Archirafi is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The place lies halfway between Catania and Taormina and between the volcano Etna and the sea. Gardini Naxos, a seaside resort with a sandy beach and a promenade, is just 20 km away. Beside it we find Taormina ‘the pearl of the Mediterranean’ and the most exclusive seaside resort in Sicily. Its ancient Greek theater is world famous for its extraordinary panoramic views. Santa Maria la Scala and Aci Trezza are pleasant seaside villages near Torre Archirafi. In the village Santa Tecla, a few kilometers from Praiola, is the renown, but quiet cheap, fish restaurant “Da Lorenzo”. 2 km from Torre Archirafi is a big supermarket.
