An incredible cycling experience in Italy, from coast to coast
This road bike tour will take you on a long and unique ride, from the Tyrrhenian Sea to the Adriatic Sea. The Italy Coast to Coast Bike Tour is ten days, during which you will stop in eight extraordinary places.
Guided by an incredible local Italian team, you will ride through three wonderful regions in Italy: Tuscany, Umbria and the Marche. You’ll 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 Gimignano, Montepulciano, Assisi, Norcia, Castelluccio di Norcia, and many others. In these towns, enjoy the specially chosen luxury accommodation and acclaimed restaurants, taste typical local dishes and wines from famous vineyards, the perfect reward for our days in the saddle.
The Italy Coast to Coast road bike tour is divided into stages, which are appropriate for cyclists with a medium level of training. Nevertheless, the constant presence of our minibus and our guide are a safeguard in case of unexpected problems and ensure complete assistance.

TUSCANY - ITALY
Dusty roads and rolling countryside – Tuscany and the rest of Italy is a dream to ride. Road cyclists should be adding this Italian gem to their hit list. After all, if it's good enough for the pro's then it's good enough for us! Pedal the same routes that are used in the Strade Bianche and discover why we're mad about Italy.
Boasting warm and mild weather all year round, Italy really is a dreamy destination. The height of summer can get too hot for some in the midday sun. So if you prefer slightly cooler temperatures, perhaps book for spring or autumn dates for a more comfortable ride.
Dusty, hilly, and rolling. The roads run beautifully through Italy's interior with tough climbs and fun descents to tackle. Hot summer days really do kick up the dust. Don't forget your glasses and a face covering if you are normally at the back of the peloton!
Warm and welcoming. Italian hospitality is famous across the globe. Be prepared to be blown away by hearty food and rich flavours, incredible wines, and the all important family feeling that runs throughout the region. Tuscany will leave an imprint on you after your visit.
