The baroque, coastal city of Acireale, just north of Catania, hosts the most beautiful and popular carnival on the island, featuring elaborate papier-mache floats draped with flowers and carpets of confetti. Crowds follow masked and costumed dancers and attend many concerts. Such is its popularity they do it all again in the first week of August.
