Sicily Bike Tours

Experience Sicily

Sicily has long extended a welcoming hand to visitors throughout the ages. It is a cultural crossroads where Greeks and Romans, Phoenicians and Arabs, French and Spanish civilizations have all left their mark over the centuries-artistically, architecturally and gastronomically. Our journey focuses on travelling through the southern side of the island visiting the baroque towns of Ragusa, Modica and Scicli and across the Val di Noto. During our explorations, we are rewarded with an exclusive gourmet experience and immersion in local gastronomy. The entire experience is pure indulgence for the senses: admire the island’s rich culture, savor fresh seafood, handmade pasta, arancini, pasta with sardines, and caponata, and enjoy the wine journey around the finest vineyards in Sicily.

Signature

We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
