Swordfish Festival in Acitrezza

District Taormina - Catania - Etna


Such characteristic as to inspire the Odes of Homer for his Odyssey, Acitrezza is a small, very charming fishing village, with a landscape dominated by the 8 stunning “faraglioni” (volcanic stacks), and lava cliffs that where formed before Etna. In this enchanting frame, a funny Swordfish Festival takes place each year during summer… worth trying for those who are passionate about the cuisine!

From June 7th to June 9th and from July 19th to July 21st, close to the harbor, some grills are set up and fresh fish is cooked right there. Expert chef will season swordfish with the best local olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice, served with a fresh salad and a glass of fine wine!

Choose our villas to enjoy the fresh swordfish and taste it in different recipes! It is the perfect occasion to take a walk along one of the most beautiful seafront of the coast, enjoying see breeze as well as an incomparable view on the mythological Faraglioni!
