Possibility of give you electric bikes, ask me!

We will ride by excellent mountain bikes around the city centre of Catania and other sea villages, visiting the most important monuments that history left us, as well as a taste of the best specialities that our street kitchen offers.

In our 3,5 hours tour, starting from the city centre we visit the city, stopping in the most important places and in some hidden nice streets. Then we go to the seafront zone, where we visit two old little areas with characteristic ports and we stop for a fresh typical drink near the sea. Continuing on the cycling path of the seafront we go to Aci Castello, an old village of fishermen 6/7 km far; there we stop in the bar that I personally consider one of the best to eat typical food such as granita, ice-cream, arancini and whatever you want admiring a beautiful sea-castle. Finally, we go to Aci Trezza, where we look at the wonderful group of sea stack of lava stones that comes out from the sea, in the place that inspired Homerus for one of the most known adventures of Ulysses. We'll finish our tour coming back to Catania.

The tour is really easy even if you aren't expert bikers. It is more or less 20 km, but we'll have many breaks and there will not be any hard climbing, because the sightseeing is at the sea level.

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.

If you want to experience the most historical places in Catania, see beautiful sceneries along the coast AND get the chance to visit the small town north of Catania while getting a bit of exercise at the same time, this is PERFECT for you! I had a lot of fun and would do it again! Giulio was a wonderful tour guide, answered and explained each question and provided the opportunity to see and experience this beautiful place on earth from a local's point of view.

This was the best experience in Catania. Giulio was friendly and adapted the trip. He told us a lot and had nice tips for the rest of our stay in Sicily. Would recommend this to anyone who can ride a bike. You just have to go with the flow and don’t mind the traffic to much.
