We will start this itinerary from the Northeast coast of Sicily, discovering the myths of Taormina and the legends of Ulysses and the Cyclops, described in the famous Odyssey, swimming between the boulders that were hurled into the sea by the giant Polyphemus and taking the route that led Ulysses to his Ithaca. An itinerary created to visit two magical places, held in the warm embrace of the majestic Etna volcano, which can only be experienced from the sea. The cruise will take you around the coastline of Taormina with its breathtaking views of Capo Taormina Bay, the charming Isola Bella, the Mermaids Bay, the beautiful Blue Grotto and the Mazzaro Bay; ideal locations for a fantastic swim.
The cruise will then proceed direction southeast, sailing near a lava rock coastline full of picturesque fisherman villages and reaching the Timpa di Acireale, so called for the characteristic shape of the lava flows superimposed over millions of years and eroded by the sea. Here we will make a new stop for snorkeling. Finally, we’ll reach the Mythological Cyclops Riviera: Capo Mulini, Aci Trezza and Aci Castello, which are part of the beautiful natural marine reserve where you can see one of the most impressive shows that nature can offer, the Faraglioni. The legend tells that the Cyclops Polyphemus throw these stacks from the slopes of Mount Etna against Ulysses trying to escape from him. So enjoy a swimming just below the rocky stones with a diving mask to admire the marvelous flora of the marine protected area.
