The Italian Job

14 Days 720 MLSAVG 120 MLS

"Cycling in Italy conjures up a myriad of thoughts and ideas. The lush valleys, lakes and mountains of the Tyrolean north; the romance and old world charm of regions like Tuscany and Chianti; the sheer cultural heritage of the beautiful medieval walled towns; lazy lunches, great food, wine and company, oh and a spot of cycling too. Perfect!

Italy is a hilly country and there are a number of climbs throughout this tour as we traverse the Appennini mountains. The tour is comparable to our Lands End to John o Groat’s tour in terms of difficulty although we do have a rest day in Siena which is a great place to explore and rest your legs.

The “Italian Job” will be undertaken over twelve days cycling with an arrival and departure day either side. We aim to keep away from busy roads wherever possible. The tour encompasses some of Italy’s most spectacular countryside and exhilarating cycling. It should be noted that the road surfaces in Italy aren’t as good as in France so a minimum of 25mm tyres is recommended with hard wearing tread. Italy can also get very hot during the summer which is why we choose slightly cooler months when the temperatures should be in the 20’s (as opposed to the 30’s – 40’s in the height of the summer."
