The Magna Via Fracigena from Palermo to Agrigento
Go to the page to view the maps of the nine stages for trekking & mountain bikes and download the GPS tracks in kml format.
You can combine 2-3 stages depending on your ability. The total distance to cover is about 190 km but there are several climbs so make sure you plan at least 3 days for the Magna Via. However, we recommend you plan a minimum of 5 days so that you can spend a few more hours in each town and savour the local specialities, chat with the locals (gesture and body language will do!) or even an extra day in places such as Castronovo di Sicilia which is unique in many ways.
