Program

Day 1: Arrival day in Sicily

Your arrival in Sicily will be welcomed at Falcone Borsellino Airport (PMO) and you will be transferred to your hotel. Alternatively, you can arrive with your own motorbike at the airport for your first night in Sicily. Your first night will be spent at a hotel in Palermo.

Day 2: From Palermo to Marsala (approximately 170 kilometers / 106 miles)

After breakfast, you will get kitted out with your motorbike hire, if needed, and set out on the road to Marsala. You will pass Capo Gallo which marks the beginning of a marine nature reserve before continuing along the coast. The road will eventually lead you away from the sea but a detour will allow you to discover some of the most superb coastal landscapes.

The turquoise and transparent waters will be intoxicating! Marsala, your stop for the night, is one of the oldest sea salt harvesting operations in existence. You can watch the sunset from the salt ponds, a moment that will be unforgettable. You will spend the night in Marsala.

Day 3: From Marsala to Agrigento (205 or 163 kilometers / 127 or 101 miles on the coastal road)

Following your previous day along the coast, the day’s route will take you inland on small scenic roads to visit some of the villages. In Agrigento, you can discover the famous Valley of the Temples which is one of the most outstanding examples of greater Greek art and architecture. It is also the largest archaeological site in the world.

The valley includes the remains of seven temples including those of Heracles, Concordia, Juno, and Zeus. For the final leg of the day's journey, the road runs along the coast, taking you through some wonderful fishing ports. There are two possible distances for the day's ride, depending upon whether you can take the coast road or head inland. You will spend the night in Agrigento.

Day 4: Agrigento to Pozzallo (approximately 180 kilometers / 112 miles)

It will be a wonderful day's ride which will begin along the coast. After reaching Gela, you will head inland to enjoy the stunning countryside. The route will return to the coast where it will be worth lingering on one of the local fishing ports. You will spend the night in the area surrounding Pozzallo.

Day 5: From Pozzallo to Syracuse (approximately 150 or 210 kilometers / 93 or 130 miles with the extension towards Portopalo)

Sicilian Baroque art and architecture will be the theme of the day, not forgetting the pleasure of riding on some of the most superb back roads. An optional excursion will be proposed to visit the southern tip of the island and Portopalo via La Grotta Calafarina, an archaeological cave. The itinerary will continue to Modica where you will see some of the most beautiful architecture in all of Sicily.

In addition to that, Corse Active Voyages will recommend that you try the extraordinary local chocolate produced from an ancient Aztec recipe. You will continue inland where you can visit the Necropolis of Pantalica, a collection of about 4000 rock-cut chamber tombs dating back from the Seventh to the 13th Century BC.

Your final destination for the day will be Syracuse, a 2,700-year old city notable for its rich Greek history, culture, architecture, and amphitheater. You will spend the night in Syracuse.

Day 6: From Syracuse to Catania (60 kilometers / 37 miles without the tour of Etna)

After breakfast, you will reach Catania, following a drive of about 60 kilometers. Feel free to enjoy the magnificent accommodation or explore the rowdy daily fish market of La Pescheria in Catania. Alternatively, you can ride another 140 kilometers to complete a circuit around the magnificent Mount Etna.

Day 7: From Catania to Cefalu (approximately 240 kilometers / 149 miles)

The day's itinerary will be exceptional as the scenic route winds its way along the slopes of Mount Etna. Reaching the region of Nebrodi and the national park, you will be riding, yet again, on some exceptional roads. On the way, there will be some interesting places to visit, including Castello di Maniace, a citadel, and castle, before rejoining the coastal road and riding along to Cefalu where you will spend the night.

Day 8: From Cefalu to Palermo (approximately 170 kilometers / 106 miles)

Once again, you will ride into Sicily's interior to discover the winding roads within the national park of Madonie where nature is very much in the spotlight. Finally, you will return to the coast and to your starting destination of Palermo. Once you have returned your motorbike, if hired, you can take your time to enjoy the interesting city before returning home.
