Since August 2017 Sicicla’s been proposing the new PARK & BIKE service to offer tourists accommodated outside Palermo’s city centre the opportunity to reach the downtown, safely parking the car and directly picking up a bike for a tours in the city.
The service was born from the synergy between Sicicla Ecotourism, our Tour Operator specialized on cycling holidays, and the Parking Amari of OSP srl, the cars, motorbikes and caravans’ parking located inside the Port of Palermo. Outside the limited traffic area (ZTL) the car park is also the perfect place to start a tour of the city: it is easily reachable from the main roads of the suburban connection and it offers 150 safe car parking places, supervised by staff every day from 7.00 am to 8.30 pm and a video surveillance system with h24 recording.
Booking through the website www.sicicla.it, or by telephone at +39 091 580891 (or by going directly to the parking cashier), customers can purchase the service parking their car for half- or a full- day and collect from 1 to 5 bicycles for each car, to discover the city of Palermo.
Each bicycle will be equipped with safety equipment, and a map of the city with suggested cycle routes. With small supplements, you can also rent electrical bikes, baby seats, or special bicycles (ride, mtb, hybrid bikes).
The beauties of Palermo, the Arab-Norman Unesco itinerary, the Historic Center and its characteristic streets, can finally be visited without stressing, at the slow pace of a bike ride.
