South East Sicily Cycling (Ref TTCT006)
A delightful self guided cycling holiday through history in the south east region of Sicily
An delightful cycle tour through the South East region of Sicily.
Passing through the Val di Noto, you will come across towns, which, since their destruction during the earthquake of 1693, have been completely rebuilt in a unique Sicilian Baroque style, and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2003.
During the trip you will discover beautiful towns like Palazzolo Acreide, Modica,Scicli and Noto, the latter considered the most important baroque town in Sicily, as well as Syracuse, one of the most important ancient Greek settlements.
Further highlights along the coast include the bird and wildlife sanctuary at "Oasi di Vendicari", the fishing village of Marzamemi, and the small islands of Capo Passero and Isola delle Correnti. This self-guided bike tour leaves enough freedom to organize your trip as you would like but still offers the convenience of an organized tour to let you enjoy your bike holiday to the fullest.
