This self-guided cycling holiday in Sicily circumnavigates mighty and moody Mount Etna, unveiling some of the most beautiful corners of this picturesque island. Along the way you can visit the edge of the active crater, soak up ancient history, sample exquisite cuisine and swim in the warm Ionian Sea.
You’ll start your cycle tour in Nicolosi, a traditional settlement at the foot of Mount Etna. Spend your days cycling to wonderful old towns like Castiglione, Randazzo and Taormina taking in nature reserves, vineyards and even pistachio plantations along the way.
The tour takes you along quiet, mainly flat, back roads for the most part, but there are also some quite challenging hills to contend with also. Anyone with a moderate level of fitness and a love of culture and nature will really enjoy this tour.
