Ecotourism - Case Colomba 

mountine-bike routes

         

       There are some areas of Trapani great for practice enjoyable and interesting excursions of mountain bike, thanks mainly to the presence, in a relatively circumscribed area, of archaeological sites, nature reserves and historic sites. Immersed in an untouched nature you will visit temples, vineyards, rural farms, mills, tuna, salt mines and castles.
 

       The best time to do these pleasant cycling routes is from April to December and from September to October. However, we selected six routes, which will allow you to appreciate and discover this enchanting corner of Sicily.
