Take on a unique road cycling experience in Sicily with Saddle Skedaddle this year! With the success of the ascent of Mount Etna in the 2017 edition of the Giro, the pro riders return to Sicily for three stages, including yet another stage ending on the sacred volcano. Our one-off special offers you the chance to follow the Giro action in the best way possible…
Starting and finishing in the island's second city, Catania, the imposing presence of the magnificent Mount Etna, is permanently evident. Our route is mainly on gently undulating roads through rolling hills and mountains and the first two day's riding takes us into areas of great archaeological significance. Roman villas, Baroque architecture and beautifully preserved bustling medieval towns punctuate our rides each day. Every day will offer the opportunity to see the riders pass through, or see them on the finishing line, and you will ride sections of the Giro route.
The island's natural treasures are equally significant and we're never far from beautiful coastlines, spectacular oak woodlands and nature reserves. Whilst there is plenty of emphasis on following the Giro and superb riding in beautiful surroundings, including Mount Etna, the quality accommodation, gourmet dining and fine Sicilian wines on offer make this a particularly appealing early season tour!
