"AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE"
Kathy and I did the Hills, Sea and more tour with Luca and Ricki from Road Bike Tours Italy in May 2018.  An amazing experience with exceptional service, attention, support and encouragement from these two great guys.  Everything was catered for including the latest Bianchi road bikes, fantastic accommodation and meals and riding through beautiful countryside, Tuscan villages and around Elba Island.  We can thoroughly recommend this professional and friendly Tour group.

 "Luca and Michela were perfect riding hosts"
Mary and I arrived in Milano not sure whether we would enjoy our week riding with Road Bike Tours Italy, but there was no need to worry. Luca and Michela were perfect riding hosts and ensure we had a marvellous week of riding around the three Lakes. They asked us how we liked to ride and used that information to tailor their tour to our needs and abilities and from there we had seven wonderful days of riding! Great rides and panoramic routes from a Luca, excellent accommodation, wonderful food and drink, brilliant van support from Michela and most importantly two new friends. We got it all from a Luca and Michela and are really looking forward to joining them again for one of their other tours.

"the perfect bike tour company"
My daughter and I were fortunate to have found Road Bike Tours Italy while searching for the perfect bike tour company that could accommodate our needs and desires. Luca and Michela were our fabulous guides during our tour of the Great Alps and we couldn't have been happier! Each day was an epic ride, punctuated by grueling climbs, amazing vistas and dizzying descents (yes, this are the epic passes made famous by the Giro d'Italia) and then rewarded by a nice hot shower in beautiful accommodations and delicious food and wine in our In addition to having incredible knowledge of the region and its cultural heritage, whereThey possess an incredible zest for life and adventure.

"Absolutely perfect tour - the cycling, the tour guides, the hotels, the food – everything!"
When I booked this tour I could see from the pictures on line that it was going to be pretty outstanding but actually cycling around the three lakes was one of the most amazing things I have ever done! The long hills were a bit of a challenge for me and my husband as we hadn’t ever cycled long ascents before but we really enjoyed doing them and would love to do it again!

"Wonderful trip"
We were a family of four on this trip, made up of parents ages 58 and 72 and two adult children; joined by Paul, an energetic 82 year old Australian gentleman who had just come from a week of cycling in Tuscany. Of the five guests I was the only one on a road bike; the others opted for electric bikes. I found two of the days challenging with fairly long and steep climbs, but a breeze if you're on an electric.

Italy Coast to Coast
An incredible new cycling experience, this bike tour will take you on a long and unique ride from the Tyrrhenian Sea to the Adriatic Sea.
Ten unforgettable days, eight extraordinary stages. Guided by our Italian team, you'll ride through three wonderful regions: Tuscany, Umbria and the Marche.
You will cycle alongside a beautiful sea, through rolling hills and the Apennine Mountains, through hidden villages full of history and surrounded by unspoiled nature in a landscape unique in the world.

Each evening we'll stop in historic towns: Siena, Volterra, San Giminiano, Montepulciano, Assisi, Norcia, Castellucio di Norcia, and many others.
We have specially chosen luxury accommodation and acclaimed restaurants for you, where you can taste typical local dishes and wines from famous vineyards, a special reward for our days in the saddle.
This cycling holiday is divided into stages appropriate for cyclists with a medium level of training, but the constant presence of our minibus and guide are a safeguard in case of unexpected problems and ensure complete assistance.

Day by day
DAY 1
Welcome Day

Welcome from the staff, presentation of the trip, delivery and preparation of bikes. Welcome dinner.
DAY 2
Bibbona - Volterra 82 km

This cycling holiday starts with a beautiful stage from Bibbona to Volterra.
We leave Bibbona and head to Bolgheri where we ride through important and famous vineyards. These vineyards are famous for the "Sassicaia" wine they produce.
The first easy climb takes us to the Castagneto Carducci. Here, we start a spectacular segment on a mountain ridge road.
Then, we go through the wilderness area of Larderello where they produce 12% of the world's geothermal energy.
At this point the enchanting Volterra and our luxury accommodation are waiting for us.

DAY 3
Volterra - Siena 75km

After an excellent breakfast, we head to Siena.
Our stage starts with a long descent towards the Colle Val d'Elsa. Here, we start a gradual climb through a natural area. We ride on peaceful back roads through old historic villages in a continuous up and down.
Siena, a city famous all over the world, is our final destination. In the evening, we dine in the old city center. This allows us to visit the Duomo, Piazza del Campo, and many other beautiful sites.

DAY 4
Siena - Montelpuciano 77km

Today, we ride through some of the most famous scenery in the world – the heart of Tuscany. We will pedal over breathtakingly beautiful rolling hills and past old farms with their characteristic vineyards, olive trees, and rows of cypress trees.
Our first stop is Asciano for a light lunch in the old medieval center.
This is an easy stage, with frequent ups and downs, sometimes a bit steep, but never too demanding.
The important and famous town of Montepulciano is waiting for us. This extraordinary Tuscan town is of Etruscan origin. One of the most appreciated wines in Tuscany, the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, is named after the town.
We won't be able to resist a visit to the historic buildings and the suggestive medieval old downtown.

DAY 5
Montepulciano - Assisi 90 km

With this stage, we leave Tuscany and we enter Umbria, The Green Heart of Italy (Il Cuore Verde d’Italia).
This is a long stage, but without long climbs. It takes us, at first, from Montepulciano to Lake Trasimeno, the biggest lake in Central Italy, where we either have lunch or grab a coffee in one of the numerous bars and restaurants beside the lake.
Back in the saddle, we cycle now through the welcoming panorama of green Umbria with its undulating hills and welcoming old villages. Early on, we can already see Assisi in the background, perched on a hilltop at the base of the Monte Pasubio.
Assisi is one of the most important cultural cities in Italy. San Francesco d'Assisi was born here, also making it an important religious center.
After a visit to the city, a delicious dinner and some priceless Umbrian wine are our reward after this long stage.

DAY 6
Assisi - Norcia 80 km

This incredible Coast to Coast bike tour is a mix of sea, hills and mountains.
Today, we enter the Apennine Range, a long mountain range that runs from North to South through Italy. If we want to go from the Tyrrhenian Sea to the Adriatic Sea, we must ride over these wild mountains.
This stage gives us our first taste of the mountains. We encounter a different kind of cycling - long climbs with a moderate gradient, always surrounded by an extraordinary landscape.
Our destination is the cultural town of Norcia, at the foot of the Monti Sibillini and inside the Monti Sibillini National Park.

DAY 7
Norcia - Camerino 84 km

This stage resembles an Alpine stage. Majestic mountains welcome us as we pedal on one of the most spectacular mountain roads in Central Italy.
We leave Norcia in the morning and head to Castelluccio di Norcia. This fairytale village is perched on a hilltop in the Piano Grande plateau at 1452 m asl, in a high mountain environment.
We start out up a road that takes us from the Valley of Norcia to the plateau, a long mountain road with a breathtaking view of the valley.
Once we reach the plateau, we ride at altitude up to Castellucio. This area is famous for its lentil plants that offer an incredible visual experience for visitors who pass through during the spring bloom.
We then leave the mountains and have a long descent to Camerino. We are now in a new region - the Marche, The sweet region (La dolce regione).

DAY 8
Camerino - Pergola 76 km

The Marche is an unspoiled region of rolling hills, mountains, and coastline. It has a lot to offer a tourist. I may be less famous than Tuscany, but it is undoubtedly of equal beauty.
In this stage, we ride inside the Regional Park of Gola Rossa e di Frasassi, a natural canyon between some mountains. We ride on peaceful back roads through quiet old villages.
Our final destination is a farm house where we can rest and taste local organic dishes and wine.

DAY 9
Pergola - Sea 55km

The final step of the tour has arrived. This stage takes us from the heart of the Marche to the spectacular Adriatic Sea with its sparkling green water.
In 8 days, we have ridden through three regions, from the Tyrrhenian Sea to the Adriatic Sea.
A long cycling tour through historic towns and unique and extraordinary landscapes, over mountains and hills, and from sea to sea - a succession of great and unforgettable emotions.

DAY 10
Breakfast and transfer to Ancona airport/station.
