                      Pocket Guide: Norman Castle Norman Castle Hotels

                      The Norman Castle of Aci Castello is one of the most dramatic sights along this part of the Ionian Sea Coast. It’s easy to visit and spend a day mooching around both the castle and Aci Castello, less than seven miles from Catania.

                      The Story of the Norman Castle

                      In the early part of the 11th Century, the Normans built this imposing castle on the remains of a seventh-century fort. Sitting on a high ridge of lava, the castle holds a commanding position over the Ionian Sea. When it was built, it was sitting on a lava promontory surrounded by water, but a lava flow in 1169 joined the promontory to the mainland.

                      As with many castles in the region, it was home to royals and had a military purpose, as well as serving as a prison. Nowadays the castle is home to the Museo Civico, which has archaeological and paleontological collections.

                      Visiting the Norman Castle

                      The castle’s collections not only contain archaeological treasures but also explore the role in the castle’s history of both the sea and Mount Etna’s lava. One of the most popular parts of the castle to discover is the botanical garden, which alone is worth the small entry fee. From the castle grounds, you’re treated to wonderful views of the village of Aci Castello as well as of the coast.

                      Where to Stay near the Norman Castle

                      In Aci Castello itself, you can choose from an intimate, family-run B&B on the outskirts of the village, or perhaps an apartment in the centre and within a short walk of the Norman Castle. There are also modern resorts with extensive facilities and outdoor pools. You could choose to stay in a beachfront hotel and enjoy sea views from your balcony. The neighbouring village of Aci Trezza has an attractive range of accommodation, including hotels close to the village beach and its small harbour. There’s also the option to stay in Catania, which is served by a bus to Aci Castello, and has a broad selection of hotels to choose from.
