Arrival at Nicolosi and check-in. Information meeting and hand-over of bikes, route directions and maps.
The route goes from Randazzo along the "Etna Wine Route" to the Byzantine chapel dedicated to Santa Domenica. From the village of Castiglione you have a nice view over the Alcantara valley which separates Etna from the Nebrodi forests. After a stroll around the old town center you head downhill towards the Alcantara river. After a lunch stop in Francaville it's time to visit the Alcantara canyon where the water has eroded the solidified lava and created beautiful gorges. Then you head towards today's final destination, Giardini Naxos, on the Ionian coast.
A short bike ride uphill takes you to Taormina, a gem on the Ionian coast and worth a trip in itself. Here you can visit Castelmola, an attractive medieval town 5 km further uphill. From here you have a nice view over the coast. Back in Taormina you can get on the cable car down to the water at Isola Bella and take a dip in the Mediterranean. Return for another night in Giardini Naxos.
After breakfast, the tour ends.
