  • Day 1

    Caltagirone

    Individual arrival. Caltagirone is one of the Baroque towns of the famous Val di Noto, a UNESCO world heritage site.

  • Day 2

    Caltagirone – Modica 50km by bike + 40 km transfer

    From Caltagirone you start cycling southwards until you reach Comiso, where a transfer will bring you to Modica. The upper town is watched over by the magnificent 18th century façade of the church of San Giorgio.

  • Day 3

    Modica – Pozzallo 35 km

    Before leaving Modica taste the famous spicy chocolate. From Modica you will gradually descend alongside the characteristic caves of the Iblei mountains to Scicli, totally rebuilt in the Baroque style after the earthquake of 1693. Continue onwards through the marine centre of Pozzallo.

  • Day 4

    Pozzallo – Marzamemi 55 km

    This day of cycling on an almost completely flat course will bring you to Portopalo di Capo Passero, continental Europe’s southernmost point. Before arriving to Marzamemi, the beautiful island of Correnti marks the meeting point of the Ionian and Mediterranean seas.

  • Day 5

    Marzamemi – Noto 25 km

    The route takes a turn to the north passing through the relatively untouched and pristine natural preserve of Vendicari, where you can relish the beauty of the countryside. The trip continues north, ending in the city of Noto, considered to be the finest Baroque town in Sicily. Completely devastated in the earthquake of 1693 the city was rebuilt in the style of that time with beautiful honey-coloured stone buildings with ornate churches and monuments surrounding attractive piazzas.

  • Day 6

    Noto – Siracusa 35km

    Heading north, the route continues towards Siracusa, the capital of Ancient Greece and home to Archimedes. With the Island of Ortigia in the background, the centre of Siracusa is a wonderful example of ancient city.

  • Day 7

    Siracusa

    Departure after breakfast.

    Due to organisational reasons, weather conditions or provisions issued by local authorities, the itinerary may be subject to some changes before and/or during the holiday. Along the way you may find temporary deviations (for example road works) which cannot be foreseen: in this case each rider can decide autonomously how to deal with these stretches.
