Cycling holidays in Italy

The home of cultural landmarks and incredible cycle routes

Cycling holidays in Italy are a wonderful way to explore the country with routes that go through beautiful landscapes, vibrant culture, lovely foods and history that stretches back to the Romans.

Italy has an extensive cycle network with many cycle paths and routes to follow. Many of the cycling holidays that we offer go through culturally important cities such as Venice, Florence and Rome with time to stop off along the way.

We love cycling in Tuscany with the rolling hills but also the routes available throughout the country that offer breathtaking views of the sea and mountains from the north to the south. Ride around the streets on your bike and immerse yourself in Italian culture. Italy has a very special atmosphere and we have some very special bike tours throughout Italy waiting for you.

Cycling holidays around Lake Garda

Cyclists at Riva del Garda

The scent of sweet oranges, fruity olives and blooming flowers breezes past you whilst the lake is an ever-present feature of the cycle tour. The glorious sun warms your back as you cycle through a vineyard or small lakeside town. Experience Lake Garda with all your senses. Enjoy the varied landscape during your cycling holiday from South Tyrol to Lake Garda.

The mountain scenery and shimmering expanse of water of the largest lake in Italy are an impressive backdrop to your cycling holiday. Lake Garda is known for some well-known wines such as Bardolino, Valpolicella or Lugana. Immerse yourself in the oasis of smells, tastes, culture, and relaxation.

Cycling holidays in Tuscany

It is easy to see why Tuscany attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world every year. After all, the perceived image of Italy in someone’s head will probably be of the Tuscany region.

The beautiful landscape is partly responsible for the popularity of this region. Ancient culture, fantastic food, flair, unmistakable fashion, excellent wines, and breathtaking cities all contribute to Tuscany being the number one Italian region for tourists!

Experience the highlights of Tuscany or cycle along the Tuscany Coast and Elba. Our cycling holidays in Italy pass through many of the region’s highlights and places to visit.

Cycling holidays in the South Tyrol

South Tyrol is an autonomous region in northern Italy and combines the best features of Austria and Italy. Visitors to the long-disputed South Tyrol region will see the Alps, glacial lakes, and health spas as you follow some of the best cycle routes in Europe through alpine scenery.

Discover the majestic mountains on a cycle route from Bolzano to Venice or on routes starting in the Alps to Lake Garda.

The increasingly well-known Alpe Adria Cycle Route passes through South Tyrol and has grown in popularity so much that the Alpe Adria is now one of the most popular European cycling holidays.

Cycling holidays along the Alpe Adria Cycle Path

Wonderful mountain panorama on the Alpe Adria Cycle Path

The impressive Carinthian mountains, the quaint lifestyle of South Tyrol and the Mediterranean flair of the Italian Adriatic together form the unique charm of cycling holidays along the Alpe Adria Cycle Path. From the historic city of Salzburg in Austria, the cycle route leads through the Salzach and Gastein Valleys to Carinthia, and then to the Austro-Italian border before reaching Grado in northern Italy's Friuli Venezia Giulia region.

The well-maintained route is 415 km long and is ideal for an e-bike with 8 to 10 days as the optimum duration. On the final stage, as you reach the town of Grado on the Adriatic Sea, you can proudly look back at the 2400 metres you have cycled uphill and the 2800 metres that you’ve descended along the way.

Cycling holidays in Piedmont

Piedmont is still unknown to many and perhaps even underestimated by visitors to Italy. For lovers of good taste, Piedmont has long been one of the country’s hidden gems, and fans of the region visit time and time again. Enjoy the stunning views over the Barolo region and a locally produced glass of wine.

‘Piemonte’ is home to many local delicacies and the famous truffles can be found on the menus of many local restaurants. This special treat is something definitely worth looking forward to after cycling around Piedmont each day.

Cycling holidays in Apulia

On the bike tour through Apulia, you'll discover the heel of Italy. You not only experience the landscape between the Adriatic and the Ionian Sea but life in Italy's eastern corner. Experience the friendliness and hospitality of the southern Italians. The local culture is influenced by the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Normans, Habsburgs, and Bourbons who have left their marks here. Take a journey through a very special part of Italy by bike.
