It has been said that all roads lead to Rome and the Viva Italia cycling tour is simply more proof that this may indeed be the case. Participants will spin out of the Vatican City’s extraordinary St Peter’s Square only to pedal up to Rome’s fabled Colosseum just over 5 weeks, 2,345 km and 3 islands later. During that time they can enjoy a refreshing aperitivo, perhaps a Campari and Soda in Siena’s magnificent Piazza del Campo. On their rest days in Florence they can stroll through the priceless collection of Renaissance art in Florence’s Uffizi Gallery and climb the dome of Brunelleschi’s Duomo. They will ride through some of Tuscany and Italy’s greatest vineyards, likely stopping for a glass or two of Chianti or Montepulciano along the way. The Viva Italia cyclists will taste the freshest of seafood in historic Livorno and have a chance to visit the unforgettable Leaning Tower of Pisa.They will pedal past Corsica’s breathtaking granite mountains, stunning sandy beaches and turquoise waters and spin through Sardinia’s silent winding mountain roads and timeless hilltop villages. The cyclists will wander the medieval streets of Cefalu and shop in the souk-like markets of ancient Palermo. The cyclists will eat fresh homemade pasta in the shadow of Sicily’s Mount Etna and struggle up into the island’s vast, untamed interior where they will experience some astonishing views from the towers of the Castello di Lombardia in the town of Enna.The Viva Italia riders will enjoy their long winding ride along Italy’s Tyrrhenian coast, passing through tiny seaside villages, lost in history and legend and framed by spectacular mountains, cliffs and forests. They will enjoy some of the world’s best pizza in Naples, stroll reflectively through the ruins of Pompeii and be awed by the stunning beauty of the Amalfi Coast. Viva Italia, indeed!
