Italy Guided Biking / Sicily
Tour Dates: Available Mar-Jun & Sept-Nov
In Sicily, the pace of life is slower and there is a real sense of tradition. Sicily’s multi-cultural past is reflected in its well preserved Greek temples, Phoenician ruins, Norman fortresses and Baroque churches found throughout the island. On the culinary side you will find fresh sea food, local produce and delightful pastries. It is also said that Sicilians make the best gelato in all of Italy, but you be the judge!
This is an easy to moderate tour, perfect for the athletic-novice to advanced rider. The riding is easier than our Tuscany tour, and we will be accompanied by a support van should you need a lift. The lodgings are a fun collection of beautifully restored old-world hotels, trulli-style inns, a masseria farmhouse and a renovated 15th century convent. Since Puglia is a major agricultural region, famous for its wine and olive oil, you can count on fantastic meals!
This is the Italy few have seen, and we like to think of this tour as a true “diamond in the rough” for the cyclist who prefers the road less traveled with a great meal at the end of it!
Daily rides are between 60 to 70 km (36– 42 miles).
