On this tour, you’ll discover the region of Southern Sicily, cycling through the hilly Italian countryside.

Beginning in Catania and ending in Syracuse, you’ll bicycle through terrain that the Sicani, the Phoenicians, the Greeks, the Vandals, the Ostrogoths, the Byzantine Empire, the Normans, and even the Spanish have called home. On this tour, you’ll pedal passed olive groves, baroque palaces, ancient cathedrals, and Sicilian ceramics. Another highlight of this tour is Modica’s fantastic chocolate, and Syracuse’s Greek and Roman ruins!

This challenging tour is for avid cyclists who can comfortably cover 80 km (50 miles) daily.
