What you'll do

We will ride by excellent bikes around the city centre of Catania and other sea villages, including the visit of the most important monuments that history left us and the taste of the best specialities that our street kitchen offers. The tour starts at 10am or at 3:30pm and lasts three hours. Firstly we visit the city centre, stopping in the bar that I personally consider the best one to eat typical food such as granita, ice-cream, cannoli or arancini. Then we go to the seafront zone, where we visit two old little areas with characteristic ports. Continuing on the cycle path of the seafront we go to Aci Castello and Aci Trezza, two nice old villages of fishermen 6/7 km far. Finally, we take a special fresh drink typical of Catania in the "chiosco" of the port of Acitrezza, looking at the wonderful group of Faraglioni of lava stones that comes out from the sea, in the place that inspired Homerus for one of the most beautiful adventure of Ulysses. We finish our tour coming back to Catania.

Giulio

I'm a Sicilian boy and I've been living in Catania since I was born. Even if I've travelled a lot around Europe, I definitely love my city and it's the one I prefer the most: Catania is really unique and its history makes it even more special. I study engineering at the University of Catania and I love it. I always had a sporty life, mostly I like adventure sports like biking, trekking and skiing. I grew up between my city and Etna, learning to know perfectly both of them. I find very cool to look my city from another perspective, and now I want to share the bike tour with you!

Where you'll be

We will discover Catania's secrets and I want to show you all of its beauties by passing through the small, old streets and visiting typical places such as the city market and the fish market, in addition to the most beautiful squares and monuments, including the cathedral and the Norman Ursino castle. We also visit Aci Castello and Aci Trezza, where you can discover the purity of sea life and amazing landscapes.
