Highlights

Sicily’s first camino gets you into the very heart of the island and its authentic people. The bike trail mainly follows  dirt roads, which locals call “trazzere” and secondary roads where the traffic is very poor or even non-existent. On many occasions you will meet the flocks of sheep that occupy almost the entire roadway and you have to wait with the shepherds for their passage to go further. Do not rush, enjoy your time, this is Sicily, this is the truest Italy, this is the way of life of those who still have strong values ​​and traditions.Every town or village has a different story to tell: Castellammare del Golfo – Scopello – Marsala – Mazara del Vallo – Selinunte – Trapani – Valley of the Temples.
