Total Sicily

 

Dates: 20-28 October 2018 - 30 March - 7 April 2019

This tour offers 7 full riding days (Sunday to Saturday) around this magnificent Island. Our start and finishing point is Palermo, which is easily reachable by airplane from many Italian and European cities. It is the first and last tour of our season because it's the one that runs furthest to the south. Sicily is a magnificent late fall, winter and early spring destination. So as soon as we move the clocks back an hour we are ready to ride in Spring. 

Our 1st day we exit Palermo on a Sunday morning with no traffic and head to Monreale for the visit to this magnificent cathedral. After the visit we cut through the mountains and reach the very beautiful Natural Reserve of the Zingaro by San Vito lo Capo. This is where we will have lunch before heading for the medieval town of Erice on a giant hill overlooking the Egadi islands and the salt plants of Trapani and Mozia. We then ride back down the twisty road and ride through the salt plants to reach Marsala for the night. Here we have the opportunity to visit a superb winery and taste their wines with dinner. 

On the second day, we leave Marsala and head inland. We ride across the Belice valley and the heart of the wine producing area of Sicily before reaching Agrigento and the UNESCO site of the Valley of Temples. The visit of these ancient Greek temples at sunset will remain with you for a long time. 

Day 3 will be an intense day of riding all the way to Siracusa. On the way we shall visit the extraordinary mosaics of the Roman Villa del Casale and Caltagirone, the pottery and ceramic capital of Sicily. 

On Day 4 you can take a well earned rest in Siracusa and visit this incredible town, or take a short loop ride to the 3 baroque gems of Sicily, Ragusa, Modica and Noto. These 3 towns are among the Hyblaean hills which offer spectacular views. 

On Day 5 we leave Siracusa and head for Mongibello. This is how Sicilians call Etna, the largest active volcano in Europe. With its 3300 meter summit it's quite a sight when we approach it. We climb up to 2100 meters on some amazing roads through the volcanic lava fileds of only 10 years ago. We then circum ride Etna on the East side and reach Taormina mid afternoon. This will give some quality time to visit this exclusive resort before dinner. 

Day 6 We leave Taormina late morning and cut across the Nebrodi mountains on the SS120 to reach Cefalu by the evening. We'll have time to visit the amazing arab/norman cathedral in the morning. 

It's the final day and Palermo is not far. Some time in Cafalu will be great and then a short ride along the roads of the Targa Florio circuit of the Madonie before reaching Palermo in the evening to enjoy another excellent dinner.
