It is in Italy that the Sun Route really begins to live up to its name, crossing the whole country from North to south, including Sicily. The first section crosses the Val Pusteria from Prato alla Drava (San Candido) before joining the Isarco cycle path. After Bressanone/Brixen the route becomes practically flat, with apple orchards on one side and the crystalline waters of Isarco on the other. The route goes through a long list of Italy’s most famous cities (See route map), before ending in the Sicilian town of Pozzallo from where ferries connect to Valletta in Malta.
