Akrai Residency takes place in the beautiful Baroque town of Palazzolo Acreide. A small town on Hybleans Mountains in the eastern part of Sicily, Palazzolo founded in 664 BC by the Siracusans with the name of Akrai (Greek) or Acrae (Latin). Situated 43 km from Siracusa, and at 700 meters from the sea level, Palazzolo Acreide has one the best-preserved ancient Greek theaters in Europe. An UNESCO World Heritage Site, Palazzolo is one-hour drive from Catania’s international airport, and two hours drive to Mount Etna, the biggest active volcano in Europe.
