This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel cycling, luggage transported
  • world heritage architecture and archaeological sites
  • gentle to moderate routes through nature reserves
  • varied and welcoming hotels

South-east Sicily is a mosaic in many senses - the rich diversity of cultures contributing to its lifestyle and buildings over the centuries, the patchwork of its landscape, the palette of warm colours characterising its hill-top villages, and the exquisite golden mosaics of its cathedrals and palaces.
Cycling through the rich landscape and history of Sicily is like exploring a living mosaic.
     
Starting and ending in Siracusa, this holiday reveals beautiful scenery characterised by deep canyons (locally called ‘cave’) carved out of the white calcareous rock by swiftly flowing rivers; wonderfully preserved antiquities; and the cluster of Baroque towns for which this part of Sicily is renowned. Built by great artists and craftsmen after the massive earthquake of 1693, the extravagant detail of the architecture is enhanced by the bright Mediterranean light.
