We’ve just come back from a great three days promoting EBT at the Intinerando Travel Show in Padua, north of Italy, near Venice.
We were there together with Irene of Vacanze Singolari, our Tour Operator partner, and met lots of interesting people including Giuliano Calore famous for extreme cycling and Italian T.V. travel presenter Liscia Colò who fondly recalled her trips to Sicily and in particular her visit to Mount Etna where she dropped into Chalet Clan dei Ragazzi and tasted Ugo’s cake…..it must have been good if she still remembers it!
There was a lot of interest in our map of Sicily and many people were surprised to discover that you can mountain bike on Mount Etna as well as hike. There were also some questions about road biking on the Giro d’Italia route which will pass by our office in Milo in May this year. Exciting!
In the evening we visited the centre of Padua and walked around its arcaded streets before sampling some great Spritz. Now we’re back in sunny Sicily and getting ready for the new season.
