Bike hire in Palermo

rent a bike in Palermo and explore the old city or the traditional markets

It is impossible to summarize briefly the millennial history of Palermo. Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Swabians, Aragonese, Spaniards, Savoy, Austrians, Bourbons and finally the unification of Italy. Each of these cultures has left its mark on culture, palaces, gastronomy and popular traditions. The faces of the Sicilians tell a story of dominations but also of cooperation between different peoples. Cycling through the alleys of Palermo means crossing millennia of history exploring the scents, flavors, the most beautiful colors in Sicily. We have selected our rental bikes after years of experience in the field and after exploring the most hidden corners of the city by bicycle and have elaborated the most fascinating itineraries for both mountain bikes and city bikes.

Our bicycles to rent in Palermo

We have explored Sicily by bike far and wide, on any type of terrain, roads, weather conditions. We know every corner of the island and we have always been cyclists. We have selected the bikes of our rental fleet taking into account both the needs of the cyclist, the mountain biker and the sports cyclist but also the type of territory that they will travel by bicycle.

Take your time and cycle the narrow streets and alleys of the old city of Palermo. You’ll find Norman palaces and Baroque churches shimmering in mosaics, outdoor markets overflowing with olives and oranges. Smoothing out the rough edges, a great deal of warm-hearted street life. This bike is recommended for city bike tours or daily tours in Palermo and in its surroundings such as Monreale or Mondello.

Pedaling only 3 km outside of Palermo you will notice that Sicily feels different from any place else either in Italy or in other parts of Europe. Fields of yellow wheat that ripen under the warm sun, the turquoise sea that gently touches the fisherman villages on the coasts that have seen the ships of Romans and Greeks. This bike is recommended for long cycling trips or challenging cycling adeventures in Palermo’s surroundings.

Palermo is surrounded by mountains and countryside crossed by white roads to be explored with a mountain bike both in bikepacking and with a rack and Panniers. San Matino delle Scale, Monte Pellegrino, Monreale, Madonie mountains are just some examples of destinations for your cycling adventures. This bike is reccomended for mountain cycling on the Palermo’s mountains such as Monte Pellegrino or San Martino.

 

For this reason we have chosen bicycles suitable for Sicilian roads that do not always have a coat in perfect condition. Our bikes are the perfect compromise between strength, comfort, manageability and performance. They are also subjected to a complete maintenance cycle at each exit. Real travel cars to allow you to ride having fun always with maximum safety.
