As we pedal through ancient towns like Erice and Ragusa, each climb is rewarded with stunning panoramas and architectural marvels, telling tales of Sicily’s layered past.

The heart of Sicily beckons with its vineyard-dotted countryside. In towns like Selinunte and Sambuca di Sicilia, local wines and traditional cuisine await, offering a taste of the island’s agricultural bounty. As we cycle on, we delve into the historic depths of Corleone, a name etched in popular culture, yet brimming with untold local narratives.
