Villa Comunale

The gardens of this villa represent a shaded solution after the days spent at the beach. Designed by the British and eccentric Lady Florence Trevelyan, they fairly resemble British gardens, although they house a diverse and rare Sicilian flora as well as exotic plants. The architectural items are also considerable: there are bizarre constructions like the Beehive and other more classical statues.

Do & See

The medieval town can probably be walked within one day and this gem located on the East coast of Sicily has a unique charm that has attracted many travellers, despite its small size. The historical centre, Corso Umberto I with its shops and traditional Sicilian restaurants, crystal water beaches and the numerous options for a day trip in the Sicilian surroundings are some of the ingredients that make the so called "pearl" of the Ionic Sea so unique and alluring.
