ROAD BIKE TOUR NORTHERN COAST
The departure will take place from our base in Giardini Naxos, from there you start to climb up the valley passing through the small villages and the magnificent views over the river from which the valley takes its name "Alcantara".
This river has magnificent gorges made from natural basalt in which the waters coming from the Peloritani mountains have cut channels. Going up the valley crossing the country side of " Francavilla " you will continue your arduous climb between grazing lands and uncontaminated nature, toward the summit of the "Sella Mandrazzi" 1200 mt asl, a point of spectacular views from which you can admire the Aeolian islands, and Calabria.
The long but downhill road quickly leads us through the village of "Novara di Sicilia" arriving at the sea and leading us to the fantastic "Sanctuary of Madonna of Tindari" or "Shrine of the Black Madonna", the latter dating back to the 15th century, stands the magnificent "Mare di Oliveri" and the "Laghetti di Marinello". In addition it is also possible to visit the nearby archaeological area of Greek origin which contains one of the best preserved theaters of the era. The end of your day will conclude by returning to our base by the same route.
This tour very demanding and only for pro-riders.
