Secret South Biking Tour

This is one of our most popular Sicily Bike Tours and if you spend two weeks on the island you can add our Best of the West tour and get the most out of your stay in Italy’s southernmost region.

Sicily’s South-East is all about Baroque opulence, amazing food, wonderful back roads lined with typical dry-stone walls and panoramic views galore. Enjoy a laid back holiday on two wheels in one of Sicily’s most beautiful corners. This is the home of the TV Inspector Montalbano and you may well recognise some spots and the Mediterranean atmosphere if you are a fan of the commissario. Cycle past carrob trees, citrus and olive groves and take in the views of the beautiful Sicilian countryside before approaching the coast with its extensive sand dunes and lovely bays with crystal clear blue water. Taking a day off in Siracusa is a great idea to fully enjoy this ancient city and its charming old town on the islet Ortigia.
