A fantastic cycling holiday in south-east Sicily, a region that offers real contrasts – from stunning mountain scenery to coastal wetlands. This self-guided cycling holiday takes you to some truly fabulous baroque towns, protected landscapes and UNESCO World Heritage sites.
You’ll start in the Hyblean Mountains in the island’s south east corner and pass through canyons and rugged upland landscapes before turning downhill to reach the coast. Here you’ll visit age-old fishing villages and preserved nature sanctuaries where you can look out for rare migratory birds.
Moving on you’ll have ample opportunity to admire the region’s distinctive architecture before pedaling onwards to end your journey in Syracuse, where history is round every corner. You’ll mostly be following flat, quiet back roads. Any uphill sections aren’t brutal so the tour is suitable for any moderately fit and active person.
