For "ferragosto", we moved to Arcile with my Italian friend and many other Italian guys, there was a big party on the beach, everybody brang his tent, some drinks... and we danced all night long, it was sooo awesome! Italians know how to party, it was like American parties in the movies! There are some discotheques in Catania that are really fun too! Moon beach, sheep out... had a lot of fun there ! You will always find a place to party there !
