Reiserute

  • Day 1: Start Palazzolo Acreide.
    Start Palazzolo Acreide, a charming maze of narrow streets and Baroque churches built following an earthquake in 1693 on the site of the Greek colony Akrai, which itself was founded in 664 BC. The town is situated in the heart of the Iblean Mountains, overlooking the upper valleys of the Anapo and Tellaro rivers, which helped the Corinthians control a broad swathe of Sicily. Accommodation: Hotel Colle Acre or similar
  • Day 2: Ride south to the hilltop Baroque town of Ragusa Ibla; cycle scenic roads to Modica.
    We start our exploration with a ride through the beautiful lower valleys of the Iblean Mountains, passing olive plantations and dry-stone walls that characterise this area. We then climb into the highlands to the delightful town of Ragusa Ibla, built over three hills separated by a deep valley, and home to beautiful Baroque churches and buildings. After visiting Ragusa, we cycle for another 14km to the town of Modica, another gem of the Sicilian Baroque, nestled at the bottom of a deep gorge. Overnight in Modica. Accommodation: Ferro Hotel or similar
  • Day 3: Try the famous Modica chocolate with chilli; cycle to the architectural delight of Scicli, famous film set of Inspector Montalbano; on to the fishing village of Marzamemi.
    Before leaving Modica, we have the opportunity to taste its famous chocolate with chilli, which is still prepared using the original Aztec recipe brought over by the Spaniards in the 1500's. We leave Modica behind and ride along a ravine with a downhill bias until we reach another outstanding example of Sicilian Baroque architecture, Scicli, where the popular Inspector Montalbano TV series has been filmed. From here, we move to the picturesque surrondings of Marzamemi, one of Sicily's prettiest fishing villages offering postcard views, numerous cafés, and restaurants. Overnight in a lovely agriturismo with pool near Marzamemi. Accommodation: Agriturismo Tenuta Arangio
  • Day 4: Circular route through vineyards and along the coast to the fishing village of Marzamemi
    A circular ride takes us through vineyards and then follows the coastline to Portopalo di Capo Passero, the southernmost village of Sicily (further south than Tunis), following the coast we reach Marzamemi, a picturesque fishing village of Arab origins. Back at the agriturismo, we can enjoy an optional fun cookery demonstration and class (payable locally) followed by a delicious dinner (bookable and payable locally). Accommodation: Agriturismo Tenuta Arangio
  • Day 5: Coastal ride to Vendicari Nature Reserve; continue to the UNESCO-listed Baroque town of Noto.
    A short ride brings us to the beautiful Vendicari Nature Reserve. This narrow stretch of marshy coastline provides a rare and now completely protected habitat for migratory species and for the local flora and fauna. There are some beautiful sandy beaches, perfect for a swim in the clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea. As we leave the reserve behind, we head north to the elegant town of Noto, another UNESCO World Heritage site. Noto is an absolute gem, a planned town in the unique Sicilian Baroque style, all built in a beautiful honey-coloured stone. A must try in Noto is the delicious almond granita (similar to sorbet) with brioche, typical of the area! Overnight in Noto. Accommodation: Hotel Flora or Grand Hotel Sofia or similar
  • Day 6: Circular ride to Cavagrande National Reserve and the deep Cassibile Canyon.
    We start our day with a challenging but rewarding 5km climb to San Corrado and the ruins of Noto Antica, the original settlement of Noto that was completely destroyed by the earthquake of 1693. We continue up reaching the viewpoint of Cavagrande del Cassibile (505m.), one of the deepest canyons found in Europe. The scenery here is spectacular and offers sweeping views of the valley far below. In the afternoon we enjoy a beautiful descent with hairpin bends towards the coast and then back to Noto. Accommodation: Hotel Flora or Grand Hotel Sofia or similar
  • Day 7: Final coastal ride to Syracuse; free time to discover the historic town.
    Today's gentle ride follows the coast all the way to Syracuse, passing beautiful beaches where, weather permitting, we will stop for a refreshing dip in the sea. The afternoon will be spent in Ortigia, the island where Syracuse was founded. After a short orientation tour, there is free time to explore at our own pace, head to the beach, do some shopping, or visit the famous archaeological park. Overnight in Syracuse. Accommodation: Hotel Mastrarua or similar hotel nearby
  • Day 8: End Syracuse.
    The trip ends in Syracuse in the morning of day 8.

Food
All breakfasts and 1 dinner is included. Sicilian cuisine is a melting pot of all the different cultures that have occupied the island, from the Arabs to the Normans. The island itself is incredibly fertile, enjoying a perfect climate which is ideal for the cultivation of fresh produce such as olives, oranges, lemons, eggplants, tomatoes, pistachios, almonds, grapes, and more—not to mention all of the seafood, tuna and swordfish fished right off the coast. The result is a cuisine that’s fresh, varied, and absolutely delicious. Sicilian wines are also superb and known to be strong and syrupy, like Marsala and Moscato. On this trip there is the chance to sample some unique Sicilian products. Lunches normally consist of delicious pic-nics, freshly prepared by your assistant leader each day. Dinners will be taken at the hotels or local restaurants recommended by your guide.
