Price from



6 h



Cycling tour, which from the sea will take us to the slopes of the Etna volcano. We will ride along the roads and carriageways that surround Mamma Etna, passing by the fantastic Catania seafront, characterized by small and historic seaside villages, immersed in the black and solid lava stone.

From our Meeting Point in Catania we will leave by bike and discover the famous Catania coast; we will warm up our muscles by pedaling between seaside villages and mythological locations such as Aci Castello and Acitrezza. After the coast, the cycling tour will really come to life with a descent along Timpa di Acireale, steep and technical, with an uneven lava stone surface. After the beautiful descent, the landscape will become again coastal and we will pass through seaside villages and towns of characteristic beauty, as Santa Maria La Scala (a hamlet of the municipality of Acireale, located at an altitude of 15 mt above sea level) and Scillichenti. From here on out the going will get tough as only climbs await us. We will ride in the direction of Zafferana Etnea, (a town located at an altitude of 574 s.l.m.) in search of the less busy and chaotic streets, where we will stop for the lunch break and you will have the opportunity to taste the Siciliana, typical Catanese stuffed fried pizza (included in the price).

After the lunch break and with relaxed muscles, we will travel another kilometre, mostly downhill, to return towards Catania, where we will conclude our cycling experience.
