Tour Highlights

Tour Highlights

  • Climb Mt Etna: We mix more gentle climbs with some iconic rides including the classic climb up Mt Etna

  • A coffee stop with a difference: As coffee stops go, this might be the best in Europe. The same bar Al Pacino drank at in the Godfather is also right next to an incredible descent.

  • Spectacular Taormina: We spend most of our time off the beaten path in small Sicilian villages but also ride through famous sites including Taormina.

Sicily Cycling Holiday

Sicily is the largest island in the med with a fascinating history and incredible landscapes. Home to Vincenzo Nibali, the island is rolling throughout with one large climb in Mount Etna. Several pro teams come and train here in Jan / Feb to make the most of the early season sunshine and mix of terrain. This 4 night Sicily cycling break includes rides up Mount Etna and to the villages used in the Godfather. Our rides are on quiet backroads and the carb loading is out of this world!
