Cycling Sicily

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The city of Syracuse is spectacular.

What did you think of your group leader?

Our guide Daniela was amazing, very knowledgeable of the country's history and areas. You can see her love and passion of the country come out in everything she said and did. She went out of her way to make sure we all enjoyed ourselves. Giuseppe our driver, bike repairer and lunch maker was also fantastic. Though Giuseppe did not know much English none of us had any problem communicating with him. The lunches he put together were spectacular, healthy and sometimes too much. Daniela and Giuseppe worked so well together.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Some of the hills are challenging so preparing ahead of time would be advisable but very doable.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Sicily is definitely a country to see. You will eat like kings and queens everyday. If you are doing a cycling trip try to add some time at the beginning or end to see other parts of the country.
