Hannibal Bike Tour - Alba to Rome

A cycling expedition 2200 years in the making

14 Days Moderate-Advanced 1312 Km

Stage 2 takes us on across the spine of Italy – the Apennines – and through a landscape of vines, castles, agriculture and beautiful hill towns. Starting in Piedmont, the area known as the Italian’s Italy, we traverse the spectacular Oltrepo Pavese and head into Emilia Romagna where our route over the Apennines awaits us. A number of Italy’s culinary jewels – Reggio Emilia, Modena, Parma and Piacenza – are found in this region so gastronomic delights abound. The Apennines may not be the Pyrenees’ or Alps but they are a challenge nonetheless with regular climbs and steep ascents, many of which that have featured in the Giro d’Italia. Our destination is the city of Pisa where our hotel overlooking its eponymous tower provides a fitting spot to toast the end of the first part of stage 2.

From Pisa we venture further into Tuscany through what can only be described as picture postcard scenes. Meandering through Renaissance Italy on the road less travelled through beautiful scenery and hill towns is cycling at its best. Rolling Tuscan hills covered in sunflowers, Umbrian medieval towns and Lazio which provides us with our final Italian canvas, the prominence of Roman heritage increasing as we make our way towards Rome. We pass by Trasimene where Hannibal destroyed a Roman army forcing them into the lake and cycle in the footsteps of Hannibal’s army through what were once the Arno Swamps and to the gates of Rome! Our final hotel is in the heart of the lively Trastevere district which provides a perfect venue for a gala dinner to toast the end of our great cycling adventure.
