Slowly cycling through the western coast of Sicily you will be able to appreciate its vivid contrasts and extraordinary history. This region offers full palette of colours: luminescent white in the salt pans, deep blue skies, emerald waters for bathing and fields full of the greens and yellows.
Arrive to the town where Marsala wine comes from and spend the afternoon mingling with the locals as they promenade on marble cobbled streets from one piazza to the next, chatting and admiring the numerous imposing baroque churches.

This morning a short boat ride takes you to the Island of Favignana, the largest of the 3 Aegedian Islands, set 7km off the western coast of Sicily and well known for its tuna fishing tradition. It’s a delight to cycling on the flat coastal roads bordered by the inviting turquoise colored sea.
