A quite enjoyable bike tour through the southeast of Sicily, tailored to your own rhythm and your interests. You will pass through the Val di Noto, where most of the towns, after destruction during the earthquake of 1693, have been completely rebuilt in unique Sicilian Baroque style, and which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2003. Along the trip you will discover beautiful towns like Palazzolo Acreide, Ragusa Ibla, Modica, Scicli and Noto, the latter considered the most important baroque town in Sicily, as well as Syracuse, one of the most important ancient Greek settlements. Along the coast you will see further highlights like the bird and wildlife sanctuary "Oasi di Vendicari", the fishing village of Marzamemi, and the small islands of Capo Passero and Isola delle Correnti. This self-guided bike tour leaves enough freedom to organize your trip as you would like but still offers the convenience of an organized tour to let you enjoy your bike vacation to the fullest.
