Rome to Sicily RTS

Italy

This motorcycle trip goes through the beautiful scenery of Italy, with all its fantastic roads.

This one-way Edelweiss motorcycle trip commences in Italy’s impressive capital of Rome – an exciting city. Making our way through the breathtaking beauty of Italy’s southern regions, we have time to stop and admire such famous landmarks as Mount Vesuvius, the world-famous Costa Amalfitana and the buried city of Pompei outside Naples. We’ll overnight in the quaint fishing villages of Maratea and Parghelia before our ferry crossing to Sicily. During our rest day in Taormina, you can explore the narrow, twisting streets of this beautiful hillside village, or take a gander at the active Mount Etna by taking a scenic ride around the mountain.

On the following day we travel past the old village of Sperlinga, with a Middle Age castle cut into the rock. Riding north-west we reach the romantic fishing village of Cefalù by evening. A trip to the notorious city of Palermo is also a possibility. The day after we’ll find ourselves in the Valley of Temples, which encompasses the largest collection of ancient Greek temples and ruins outside of Greece – Agrigento. Mafia buffs will want to visit the historic villages of Prizzi and Corleone. Continuing through unpopulated, hilly roads, we bisect the island from north to south, and from south to east. After seemingly endless curves with the distant view of Mount Etna always in sight, we reach our final destination, Catania, just in time for a last espresso in the Old City before our Southern Italian dream comes to an end.

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.
