Rome to Sicily RTS

Italy

A memorable motorcycle tour on the fantastic roads of beautiful southern Italy and Sicily.

Rome, the eternal city, is a place like no other. Our tour starts here and while heading south we have time to admire the beautiful scenery and some famous landmarks, like Mount Vesuvius, the world-famous Costa Amalfitana and the buried city of Pompeii. Along the stunning coast or on tiny, super-twisty roads in the hinterland we continue towards the southern tip of mainland Italy, catch the ferry, and off we go to Sicily.

The largest island in the Med welcomes us with lush vegetation and a special vibe that sets it apart from the rest of Italy. On our rest day in Taormina you can explore the cobblestoned alleys of this beautiful town or take your bike out for a ride, like around Mt. Etna, Europe’s tallest and most active volcano. Or get up early and do both, it’s worth it!
Sicily is roughly triangular, and we are going to visit all three sides. Cefalù, in the north, is famous for its stunningly beautiful old town, while Agrigento, in the south, enters the “best of Sicily” contest with its Valley of the Temples. Our tour ends in Catania, in the east, within sight of Mt. Etna. Ahhh, bella Italia…

Testimonials

Rom-Sizilien

Dank Edelweiss Bike Travel können wir auf eine überaus einzigartige Tour zurückblicken. Von der Buchung bis hin zu unserer 11-Tage-Reise mit Alan, Marko und Domenico – unsere Erfahrung war in jeder Hinsicht perfekt. Vom Start der Tour in Sizilien bis zu ihrem Ende in Rom stand ein breites Lachen stets auf unserem Gesicht, und es war kaum möglich, all die Bilder, Gerüche und Geräusche mit unseren Sinnen zu erfassen. Wir haben vor allem die vielen kleinen Bergdörfer bestaunt, in denen wir meist unsere Pausen verbrachten. Hier haben wir unsere Batterien mit Espresso und Gesprächen mit den Einheimischen aufgetankt, oder wir sind einfach dagesessen und haben versucht, die unzähligen und einzigartigen Momente in unser Gedächtnis einzubrennen. Während der Tagesfahrten waren wir stets überwältigt von der Landschaft und die kurvigen Bergstraßen waren einfach unglaublich zu fahren. Den Fahrtwind genießend haben wir die Tour schließlich auch mit einem weinenden Auge beendet, denn keiner von uns wollte, dass sie zu Ende geht. Würden wir die Reise wieder buchen? Natürlich und ohne zu zögern.

Jay & Jodie Clarke, Kanada
