Reviews for Sicily cycling holiday in Italy


review 10 Apr 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Well, most memorable was possibly cycling up a zig zag mountain road in the teeming rain with a river coursing down the road!! That was freak weather though. Most memorable in a good way was the wild flowers, which were everywhere and spectacular, and the food, which was the best I have ever eaten.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Do some training riding up hills! On two of the days there are very long climbs (and very long descents afterwards). Bring clothes for a wide range of weathers if travelling in April as it can be cool and wet, but when the sun comes out it can also get pretty hot.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I think so. There is a visible need to develop sustainable tourism on the island and I think spending money in the local restaurants and shops helps local people. Tours also give visible value to the unspoiled environment, history and traditions.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

It was challenging and wonderful. Sicily is a fascinating place.
