Cycle the beautiful coastline of Sicily
This dramatic ride takes you from mediaeval Scopello, a tiny cobbled hamlet superbly located above the idyllic Zingaro Nature Reserve, through pristine countryside to the stunning ancient Greek city of Segesta, before returning to the sea and the salt pans and ancient windmills of Nubia. You end your tour in Marsala, renowned for its sweet dessert wine. Superb hotels are a highlight throughout; most are traditional Sicilian farmhouse (baglio) style, with rooms built around a central courtyard and each has an enticing swimming pool.
