Cycle and get to understand the essence of champions like Bartali, Coppi, Gimondi. Discover the world of Ferrari and visit the Grand Prix San Remo and Monza or drive your own car at Maranello. Walk the footpaths of Le Cinque Terre, the path of the Gods, the 1000 kms of walking trails in the Dolomites not forgetting the Via Francigena. If you want to experience exhiliration, combine a zip wire ride with trekking near the town of Matera, just selected as European Capital of Culture for 2019. Enjoy the horse-riding in Tuscany amongst the vineyards or Sardinia along the empty beaches. If windsurfing is more your game then check out the town of Torbole on Lake Garda, Porto Pollo, Chia, and Capo Mannu in Sardinia or what about Tremestieri in Sicily. There is the 6 Nations Rugby which is a great excuse to get away or the world of skiing where Italy has it all, from cross country to downhill skiing, snow boarding to heli skiing!
