Guests will spend seven days cycling their way through the heart of Southeast Sicily, a seductive and bold region, where every pedal stroke includes a gastronomic journey that mirrors the island’s vibrant cultural tapestry. Non-cyclists are welcome, and e-bikes (pedal-assisted system) are available. While this region is celebrated for its Baroque and Norman architecture, artistic heritage, and intellectual contributions, it’s the food that truly steals the show.

Sicilian cuisine is a delightful blend of influences from Phoenicians, Greeks, Moors, Arabs, and Normans, creating a unique culinary tradition. Citrus, wild fennel, resins, and pine nuts, to name a few, make any dish distinctively Sicilian. Sicily is also a wine-lover’s paradise with 23 DOC zones, offering a wide variety, complexity, and abundance of Bacchus’ unique gift. But it isn’t only about exquisite cuisine; it’s a holistic experience. Guests will cycle through landscapes adorned with rolling hills and vineyards, coastlines kissed by aquamarine waters, and ancient sites steeped in history. The guest chefs will play a vital role in understanding the local productions and the preparations that better tell the story of the territory.
