About this trip

 L’Isola di Sicilia is the biggest island in the Mediterranean ocean. Surrounded by Sardinia, the Italic Peninsula, Greece and facing Tunisia, lies in a strategic location. Sicilia made the desire and bastion of all the kings, princes and sultans of the region, who wanted to control the Mediterranean for centuries. It was conquered by the Greeks, the Arabs, the Romans, the Normans, the Bourbons and the Spaniards.
They all left their influence, visible in architecture, sculptures, gastronomy, agriculture, art and people. The bike ride from Siracusa to Etna Volcano takes place mainly in the southeast of the island. We will visit Modica, Noto, Ragusa, Palazzolo and Siracusa. This region suffered a devastating earthquake in 1693 and all later constructions were built in Baroque style. The tour continues around the spectacular Etna Volcano at the altitude 1,700 to 1,900 meters until we reach Randazzo. From there we continue pedaling to the Ionian Sea and reach Giardini Naxos. Nearby Taormina, located two hundred meters above Mount Taurus, is a spectacular natural terrace and from its Greek theater you can take incredible panoramas of the smoky Mount Etna and the Bay of Giardini Naxos. This is an unforgettable experience; we look forward to ride together in the next upcoming tour!

I am passionate of mountain biking, travelling and getting to know people from different corners of the planet. This probably was what more than twenty years ago inspired me to start Mtbtours as a business but also as a way of life.
