Why You'll Love This Tour

Overview

Sicily: Biking the Southern Coastal Villages

We picnic in pine forests and take you into the warmth of local kitchens to savor the bounty of land and sea. Greek Temples and Roman amphitheaters are reminders of civilizations still basking in the sun. The food dazzles with Mediterranean freshness and Arab influences. Seaside promenades come to life with Italians drinking up sunshine by the glass, also known as limoncello. This tour packs a sweet Sicilian punch.

  • Tour a family-owned chocolate factory and taste their delicious creations
  • Working with your hotel chef, learn how to prepare an original Sicilian recipe
  • Pedal along quiet rustic roads toward the Mediterranean Sea pausing to admire church mosaics
  • Discover the ancient fishing village of Marzamemi and enjoy a local café
  • Join your hotel hosts for a fascinating tour of their country estate
  • Cycle from the Testa dell’Acqua area on a panoramic route to a local farm
  • Gather with your fellow travelers and your host, a local farmer, to observe a cheesemaker preparing fresh ricotta cheese
