Sicilyis the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and possibly the most interesting with centuries of conquest and culture and cuisine. On this exquisite cycling tour, we explore the southeastern part of the island, pedaling through the baroque gems of Ragusa, Modica and Noto, ending in Syracuse, the ancient heart of Magna Graecia (Greater Greece). We will pedal past farmlands, deep gorges, and dramatic coastal scenery through sections of the Giro d’Italia. E-bikes are available!
