Santa Tecla is an excellent base from which to explore eastern Sicily. The quaint fishing village lies halfway between Catania and Taormina and just three kilometres from Acireale, a pretty little city, built on a plateau of lava, that is known for its Baroque churches. Giardini Naxos, a seaside resort with beautiful sandy beaches, is just 20 kilometres from Santa Tecla. Beside it we find Taormina ‘the pearl of the Mediterranean’ and the most exclusive seaside resort in Sicily. Its ancient Greek theatre is world famous for its extraordinary panoramic views. Santa Maria la Scala and Aci Trezza are pleasant seaside villages near Santa Tecla. Travelling south, one hour’s drive away lies Syracuse.

Santa Tecla is also an excellent base from which to explore Mount Etna and its surroundings. The villages of Etna, such as Trecastagni, Zafferana Etnea and 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 metres above sea level, they are a favourite 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. On some glorious days in winter, it’s even possible to ski the frozen slopes in the morning enjoying a wonderful panoramic view of the Mediterranean, and then, the same afternoon, go and sunbathe on the beaches below!
