The pickup time for the luggage will be agreed day by day and will be delivered directly to the room in the next hotel before the arrival of the cyclists.
Day two (50 Kilometres and a total climbing of 800 meters)
The second day will be challenging and not for distance traveled but for the altitude reached; you will move from Motta Camastra toward Montalbano Elicona, a medieval village ranked among the most beautiful in Italy that in 2015 was elected "Borgo dei Borghi" (the best village). On this itinerary you will have the opportunity to visit places of equal interest such as the Alcantara Gorges, the Mojo volcano and the local peach orchards, finishing with the magnificent scenery of Roccella Valdemone among woods, grazing lands, and uncontaminated nature. The pickup time for the luggage will be agreed day by day and will be delivered directly to the room in the next hotel before the arrival of the cyclists.
Day three (35 Kilometres and a total climbing of 200 meters)
On the third day, you will travel in the direction of the Etna's Black City called Randazzo, with a magnificent historical city center with one of the most beautiful basilicas of Sicily entirely built in lava stone. During the ride, you can enjoy a pleasant stop at Santa Domenica Vittoria to taste the local delicacies. The pickup time for the luggage will be agreed day by day and will be delivered directly to the room in the next hotel before the arrival of the cyclists.
Day four last day of the tour
The fourth and last day will be the most challenging but also the most gratifying because you will arrive on the summit of Sicily's Etna Volcano, the highest active volcano in Europe with its peak at 3341 meters. During the ride, you will have the opportunity to visit important places on the western slope of Etna like Bronte, the town famous for the pistachio production, the countryside where you will want to stop for the tasting of the famous Sicilian granita.
