Sicily’s varied topography, peerless natural beauty and countless biking trails and cycle tours make it a treat for two-wheeled explorers, who can choose between challenging mountain trails, picturesque coastal routes or themed city cycles. City cyclists can enjoy tours of Palermo, Mondello or take a street food tour through the capital, stopping to refuel on its most famous food. Alternatively, immerse yourself in nature in the forests of Bosco di Casaboli or Ficuzza, or stretch yourself with a mountain-bike adventure to Montes Manolofo or Cuccio.
Get a bird’s-eye view of Sicily with a thrilling helicopter ride across the island, its ancient sites, charming towns and natural marvels. Soar to the summit of Mount Etna, Europe’s tallest active volcano; past the Plain of Catania and Agrigento Temple Valley; or over the UNESCO-listed Aeolian Archipelago and its unique rock formations, craters and Mount Stromboli – continuously active for almost 100 years. An unforgettable experience and completely fresh perspective on our fascinating island.
MADONIE REGIONAL NATURAL PARK
A natural adventure playground spanning almost 40,000 acres, six mountains, and over 1500 plant species – from beech, oak, ash fir to over 70 varieties of orchid – Madonie Regional Natural Park offers walking and wildlife in abundance, just 90 minutes out of Palermo. From its sublime tree-capped mountainsides, sharp-eyed hikers can spot deer, boar, wildcats or Bonelli’s eagles soaring above the rugged coastline, while those interested in Sicily’s rich history should stop by one of the charming medieval villages that sit within the park.
PALERMO BY CINQUECENTO
Zip through the city streets in style in a true Italian icon, the Fiat 500 – or cinquecento – on a Palermo driving tour. Passing Palermo’s wide viales, beautiful Baroque palaces and its must-see sights – from the historic Old Quarter to the famous Quattro Canti di Citta, or Four Corners of the City, and the 12th-century Duomo, onto Zisa Castle in the UNESCO-listed Arab-Norman area. Marrying history, scenery and classic cars, this is an unforgettable, only-in-Sicily way to spend the day.
