Our emotions:

The spectacular island of Sicily is viewed by many as a legendary land full of mystery and enchantment. This vision is perfectly represented by the Riviera dei Ciclopi, or Riviera of the Cyclops, which is a stretch of coastline north of Catania leading from Aci Castello to Acireale. This is such a beautiful part of Sicily and is surrounded by myth and legend that tells us how the gigantic stones were thrown in the sea by the one-eyed-giants. Two of the most popular stories from this area tell of the Cyclops Polifemo, who was the son of Poseidon (the god of the sea) and Thoosa (a sea nymph).
