Take a step back in time on this magical and historic island. Cross the island including a double ascension of Europe’s highest volcano: Mount Etna.
Our Trans-Sicily trip crosses this magnificent island from east to west.
The trip starts on the North Coast in Cefalù, one of Italy’s best-preserved medieval villages. From Cefalù you’ll head into the centre of the island through the magnificent Madonie National Park and on to the east coast where a certain Mount Etna awaits to be conquered. From Etna you’ll cross the island, backtracking along the routes of Stages 4 & 5 of the 2020 Giro d’Italia to Enna, then on to Agrigento and the Valley of Temples Unesco site.
A magnificent ride through this historic and passionate island – not to be missed!
