The Legendary ‘Riviera dei Ciclopi’ - SICILY - ITALY


A stretch of Sicily's eastern coastline shows the continuing power of ancient Greek mythology to hold our fascination.  It's the area north of Catania (the Italian island's principal commercial center), just east of Mt. Etna.  Seen from above in this drone video by AirVuz contributor g-fly_it, the area sometimes referred to as the Cyclopean Riviera gets its name from the Cyclopean Islands, the area's most distinctive natural feature; the tiny islets feature prominently as the home of the mythical cyclops in the works of Homer.
