Considered the “most beautiful of Sicily” the Carnival of Acireale is an ancient event dating back to 1500. It takes place in the historical center of the city, allowing in this way to be able to enjoy at the same time the atmosphere of joy of the party and the splendor of the Baroque acese and Sicilian.
The carnival celebration period is full of events: exhibitions and concerts surround the parades of allegorical floats, masked groups, bands and flowered carts.
The city is festively invaded by thousands of people, we recommend using the train to avoid both the stress of traffic and that of parking. Villa Maria is the ideal accommodation to organize your visit to Acireale: the proximity of the structure allows extreme ease in travel and protects from the hassles of confusion.
