Come with us on this unique tour by bicycle and enjoy Sicily’s rich culture and warm people. Hike, swim, and bike where the movie “Il Postino” was filmed and enjoy traditional Sicilian food, wine, and music, while stopping each night at a luxury hotel. Sicily boasts some of the finest examples of Greek architecture in the world, and we’ll explore its most spectacular sites as we ride through Ragusa, Siracusa, San Giovanni la Punta and more. A ride up into the remote and haunting Altopiano Ibleo area, a visit to the exquisite Villa Donnafugata, and the spectacular views from Taormina are just a few of the many highlights of this Sicilian bike trip. Finally, we’ll board a boat to continue our journey on the Aeolian Islands of Lipari, with its deep caverns, steep cliffs, and splendid views, and Salina, which we’ll explore on a bicycle while learning about its fascinating ancient history.

Guaranteed

Confirmed tours are dates that have been selected by us that have a very high probability of reaching the minimum group size for us to run the tour and for you to receive the best Ciclismo Classico experience. These tours are confirmed as much as a year in advance, compared to our regularly scheduled tours which are confirmed around 90 days prior to departure.  When you place your deposit for a confirmed tour, you have the green light to make your pre and post travel plans and even book your flight with our personal guarantee that your tour will run!

Optional Single Supplement

If you are traveling alone, this optional single supplement will guarantee you a room to yourself at each hotel. The cost of a single room is often more than half the price of a shared room, so this additional supplement reflects that increased cost for each night over the course of the trip.
