Camping at the foot of Mount Etna


La Timpa International camp site is located on the Gulf of Catania on the east coast of Sicily. The camping grounds higher up are set in an area dominated by lemon trees and typical mediterranean flowers.

Special private beach

La Timpa International Camping Acireale occupies a unique location: in a protected park (Park Timpa di Arcireale) at the foot of the imposing Mount Etna, Europe's largest active volcano. You can take the lift hewn out of solidified lava from the camp site to a special platform where you can sunbathe or enjoy the sea which is below you, and go to a terrace with a private beach furnished with top class free deckchairs and a hot shower.

Friendliness and hospitality

There is a playground for the children but they can also enjoy a game of table tennis or table football. There is also beach volleyball and bowling at La Timpa International Camping Acireale. You can enjoy Italian cuisine in the restaurant or pizzeria (open all year with splendid sea views): everything here is based on friendliness and hospitality.

Everything to do with Etna

Acireale is well known for its annual Carnival parties. There is plenty to see in the vicinity; excursions by 4WD to the top of the 3323 metre high Etna are organised daily. You can also go to the top by cable car! In the lava caves just a few minutes from the site you can see the typical Sicilian puppetry folklore. The large harbour town of Catania is located just south of Acireale. Ferries from Naples or Reggio di Calabria (southern Italy) arrive here. A bit further away is the centuries old town of Syracuse, originally Greek, with remains of the many cultures that influenced the island. The coastal motorway offers a pleasant drive to Messina on Sicily's northern point.

Die Campinganlage beeindruckt mit ihrer spektakulären Lage an der Steilküste und einer üppigen Pflanzenvielfalt. Im Oktober nicht mehr empfehlenswert, kein Zugang zum Meer, ziemlich leerer Shop,alles auf Winterbetrieb gestellt, aber ein gut geführtes Restaurant. Kurzer Weg zum Hafen (nette Restaurants) und fußläufige Anbindung nach Acireale.
