on-Sicily is a holiday and events company owned by cycling enthusiasts, Martijn and Laura. They are based on the northern coast of Sicily, to the west of Palermo, with accommodation in the coastal towns of Balestrate, Castellammare del Golfo, Trappeto and Alcamo Marina, and as well as holidays, organise cycling events such as the Giro dello Scorpione.
