Sustainability is an essential lifestyle choice reflected in our daily actions to respect our environment.
Today we feel the need to change our actions, whether it is in work, in school or home, in order to have a greener impact.
This also includes travel. Those who decide to take a journey to discover new places certainly evaluate their impact on the environment.
For this reason, also in Sicily we have felt the need to give voice to a more sustainable behaviour. Today we offer different options that show the beauty of our land, but also that give the opportunity to have a deeper connection with nature.
Cycling in Sicily can be a great way to discover the island in a very sustainable way. Some cities, including Palermo, have recently instituted a low-cost bike sharing systems to visit the city. If you want to discover the countryside a good example of cycling tour can be the Alto Belice Valley.
