CYCLING

L’A.A.P.I.T. – Azienda Autonoma Provinciale per l’incremento turistico di Palermo has done in collaboration with the Tour Operator Siciclando some tourist track entitled Landscape Movement. These routes, to go by bike, on foot (but also by car or bike), try to give an indication for the tourist excursions in the most picturesque in the province of Palermo. It is no coincidence that in many of these routes is included the territory of Contessa Entellina and our B&B that offers a 360 ° support service to meet the needs of people who immerse themselves in these places full of colors and fragrances.
