Whether it’s the stunning Palladian villas of the Veneto, or the unique city centre of striking Rome; our Italian gastronomic cycling tours have been carefully crafted to offer as many food and wine stop offs as possible. Visit Treviso, the original production district of Prosecco, as you peddle your way to Venice from the heights of the Dolomites on our ‘From the Dolomites to the Adriatic Sea’ tour. Alternatively soak up the grandeur and history of the ‘Eternal City’ of Rome whilst supping a glass of wine on our Florence to Rome cycling holiday.
It’s hard to pinpoint one thing alone that most represents Italy’s fabulous culture. It could be the coffee, wine, food or the lifestyle – but that’s a list built before even considering its monumental history. If we chose its history and landscape, a gastronomic cycling holiday in Italy will almost certainly lead you to one, if not many, of its UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITES (well, they do have more than any other country in the world – a staggering 47 in total!).
Add to that the countless varieties of inspiring sceneries, world-famous cycle routes and the birth places of delicacies enjoyed all over the world (pizza, pasta, gelato!), and you’ll soon realise just why we (and so many others) are madly in love with this beautiful country.

Gastronomic cycling holidays in Italy are a wonderful alternative to the traditional vacation of the past. Not only is the opportunity to experience more of the country afforded, but also, cycling (as most of you will know) is hugely rewarding. Skirt along coastlines, through vineyards and towns, pedal up mountains or down gentle hillside descents; we offer an array of exciting routes, designed for various levels of experience and catered to your many contrasting requirements. One thing about cycling holidays is they’re completely non-discriminate; some people like cycling alone, some with friends, and some with strangers. Knowing this, we propose to you a number of touring options: guided, self-guided, tailor-made, bike and boat or bike and hotel. Whichever option you choose, all Italian tours include maps and accommodation bookings, as well as transportation of luggage in between stays.
