Italy by bicycle

Italy, land of gastronomy and history

Italy, the land of la dolce vita, is calling you? You're right! Every year, millions of tourists fall under the spell of the big boot. Leonardo da Vinci's country has a wealth of historical, gastronomic, natural and cultural attractions. In the land of espresso, people know how to take their time and enjoy the small pleasures of life, usually enjoyed in magical conditions, which will suit all the needs of the cyclists that you are!

From the agricultural plains of Piedmont to the fountains of Rome the eternal, and from the coastal regions whose buildings sparkle in the reflection of the Mediterranean, Italy has it all.

Step in the big boot

Italy is a country that is worth discovering on your bicycle. Between its seaside bike paths and the peaks that have made history during the many editions of the famous Giro d'Italia, there is something for every type of cyclist.
If you're traveling to push your limits, the Amalfi Coast is the place to be with its combination of steep hills and heavenly towns. If, on the other hand, your cycling trip is more about combining cycling and foodie interests, Piedmont, Tuscany and the Puglia region will delight your senses while offering you exceptional itineraries.

In any case, you can't go wrong in the land of la dolce vita. With several itineraries built around stopover towns, you have all the latitude to plan your days according to the beauty of the landscape and your desires.
