Italy, a country with more than its fair share of culture, style and scenery is the perfect choice for a cycling holiday. Some of Europe's most scenic cycle path routes are found here, possibly because the Italians themselves are incredibly keen leisure cyclists. From the majestic Alps in the north to the beaches and olive groves in the south, Italy offers a real treasure-trove of cycling routes.
For relaxed, easy cycling through awe-inspiring alpine scenery, consider one of our Adige River cycling holidays and breaks. These routes follow a stunning cycle path beside the Adige River as it gently descends through the Alps to the Roman city of Verona, there are also options to finish the route at Lake Garda or even Venice.
Our Italian Lakes cycling holiday introduces riders to the famously scenic lakes of Garda, Como and Maggiore. We also offer a route that focuses solely on Lake Garda and its surrounding countryside
Our unique Pisa to Cinque Terre cycling holiday offers 5 days of cycling in Tuscany and Liguria, concluding with a day's hike along the stunning Cinque Terre coast path.
Further south, Umbria's gorgeous, hill-top villages and mouth watering cuisine attract more and more cyclists each summer (top-tip: e-bikes makes these routes accessible to all).
Down on the heel of Italy, the olive groves, white villages and gorgeous coastline of Puglia is fast gaining fans, particularly when coupled with a stay in the iconic town of Matera in the neighbouring region of Basilicata
Of course, this being Italy you are assured of marvellous food and a warm welcome from a nation that loves good food, life, family, animated conversation and cycling.
