Cyclists on our trips with non-cycling partners need not fear of a lack of things for the non-cyclist to enjoy in the area. It is also possible to rent a car locally and drive to many attractions close by. However, Noto and Ragusa Ibla and the area offers a wide range of activities. The Cycling Friends, LLC Ride Director and/or Ride Co-Director can direct you to the Noto and/or Ragusa Ibla Tourist Office centrally located in each village. These offices have a multitude of information about sights to see in and around the area.
Another opportunity for your exploration while in Ragusa is not by bike but a guided tour of Agrigento on our day off while in Ragusa. This city, on the southern coast, is renowned as the site of ancient Greek city of Akragas. During the tour you will visit the famous “Valley of the Temples”. This site is the home of seven monumental Greek temples in the Doric style constructed during the 6th and 5th centuries BC. These temples, some of the largest and best preserved ancient Greek buildings outside of Greece itself, are also listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
