Discover the UNESCO listed Baroque towns and charming fishing villages of south east Sicily on this cycling tour of the ‘Val di Noto’. From the energetic capital of Catania, you will be transferred to the hilltop town of Palazzolo Acreide. Rolling southwards cycle through rural Sicily to the honey-coloured stacked houses and chocolate shops of Modica. Ride to the delightful piazza of Scicli and onto the Mediterranean waters of Pozzallo where you can dine on Sicily’s signature dish of grilled swordfish. Pedal to the ancient Arabic fishing village of Marzamemi and spend the afternoon relaxing on sandy beaches. On reaching Noto, stroll along the elegant ‘Corso Vittorio Emanuele’ with a cone of gelato in hand.
