Description

Private cycling tour.

Guaranteed languages: Italian and English (other languages ​​on request).

Private excursion carried out with the support of a cycle-guide . From Palermo, after about 10 km of cycling you will reach Monreale, where you can visit the Cathedral and the Cloister independently. After the stop in Monreale, resuming your bikes the tour continues along along an evocative road built on the route of an old disused railroad, through which you will climb up to reach Piana degli Albanesi. From there, after tasting a special “cannoli” filled on sight by a pastry chef, we will first skirt the lake of Piana degli Albanesi with its suggestive views. Finally, you will return to Palermo by a very scenic road downhill until you reach and cross the historic center of the city and finally return again to the starting point of the excursion.
