History, food, wine and cycling: what a mix!
To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is not to have seen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything.
Sicily is a special place. In the hearth of the Mediterranean - and in a strategical position - since prehistory Sicily has known several civilizations. Each one has left a layer of culture, architecture, but also food and wine traditions. And a huge social complexity that makes any trip special to us in search of authenticity.
Geography makes Sicily a great environment for us cyclists too, with a huge variety of routes and different cycling conditions. From flat to rolling hills, up to the huge - 3000m high - Etna volcano. And what about the mild Mediterranean weather?
We don't - off course - dislike having a lovely cappuccino or food stop in a small old village on our rides. And Sicily is unbeatable in it: there are so many little villages where enjoying the warm local hospitality and the typical Sicilian slow pace life. And food is top!
We aknowledge that to know Sicily you'll need one life, and maybe it's not even enough. But selecting the right biking tour, will make you have a good insight of this fantastic land and of the cycling it offers.

Because it's not just cycling
A real must-do for cyclists on the east coast of Sicily. Its impressive profile, visible from very long distance, is an invitation to reach the top.
Sicily is famous for this fine and tasty street-food. For us cyclists it can be the best quick lunch while on a ride. If you're able to stop eating a second, or a third!
Sicily's east coast features fome of the best views in the island, and for sure the most varied cycling, from the up and downs, to medium or super long ups.
If it's good for Francis Ford Coppola, is good for us too. So let's have a cappuccino break at this pictoresque location from the Godfather movie.
Coastline roads are amazing, but we're cyclists and we love riding inland on winding up and downs. We won't be disappointed here around Letojanni!
