Known as the most beautiful Carnival in Sicily for its papier-mache or flower parade floats, it boasts a centuries-old tradition, that may be dated back to 1500.

The baroque architecture is the ideal scenery for the costume and floats parade which are fruit of the creative talent of the best craftsmen of the City.

At the beginning the carnival in Acireale was just an hilarious orange and lemon fight, but because of many injuries, it slowly became what is now: an elegant but entertaining event full of colors and art.
