Description

Guaranteed languages: italian and english (other languages on request).

Private cycling tour up to 15 people.

This private tour comes with added support of a cycling tour guide and our minivan to assist with the transfer to Monreale. From there, after exploring the Cathedral and the Cloister on your own, the bike tour will begin. On this cycle route you will pedal around picturesque landscapes, cycling over the tracks of an old, derelict railway line, along which you will climb to the Piana degli Albanesi (literally translated as the Albanian’s Plain). From there, after tasting a delicious Sicilian “cannolo” pastry filled with sweet ricotta made on site by a master chef, you will circle around the lake of Piana degli Albanesi with its suggestive views. Finally, you will head back to Palermo enjoying the views as you ride along the very scenic downhill road, before reaching and crossing the historic city centre and finally coming back to the start point of the tour.
