For us, visiting a monastery is just an excuse for a great ride with many turns enjoying breathtaking panoramas. The feeling of freedom, the closeness to nature, the smell of the flowers, are all things that, in every other trip, tend to be lost! Italy with its huge artistic heritage spreads all over the territory, its 7458 km of coasts, the Alps, the Dolomites and the Apennines, Italy is the ultimate country to tour by motorbike. The abundance of wonderful roads with awesome panoramas and bends makes this form of tourism not only fun but also the only way to really get to know authentic Italy. That Italy, outside the big cities, packed with amazing monasteries, abbeys, medieval villages, castles and fortresses that is hardly accessible by other means of transport.



Visiting Italy by motor bike allows riders a wider daily schedule (you are much less affected by the traffic and parking conditions). During a day on the bike (covering from 180 to 230km) you can visit up to two/three important artistic/historical sites passing through parks, natural sceneries and ever-changing panoramas, including a nice lunch break. For those who don't know Italy, we assure you that 200km per day on roads selected especially for their turns is no problem! Furthermore, our tours are always programmed  taking into consideration specific traffic and weather conditions in the area so that your driving pleasure are always at its climax. With us, amid mountains and hills (outside the big cities, avoiding touristic restaurants and high-traffic roads), on roads and in bars frequented at 90% by bikers, you'll feel as though you are with friends and not in a foreign country.



We also give the food and wine aspect its due importance programming visits and tastings in cheese factories (like the museum of the Bitto Storico), wine cellars and prosciutto factories. In a week, we usually visit two regions, thus granting visitors a varied experience of traditional Italian cooking and some glimmers of haute cuisine. The pre-packaged tours (called ready-to-buy), which usually cover more than one region, are of general interest, in other words, they include every kind of excellence.  With these tours, we give our customers the possibility of visiting 38 of the 51 Italian world heritage sites protected by UNESCO. A totally different thing is custom-made tours.  Usually convenient for a group, they can be adapted even for one person. Custom-made tours are engineered according to your specifications, thus becoming completely custom-made holidays. 



We can also arrange the rental of bikes for you or you can enjoy these tours with your own bike. There is a range of bikes for you to choose from when preparing for your escapade, a list which we are only too happy to provide. From BMW bikes to Ducatis, Kawasakis to Guzzi, Harley Davidson to MV Agusta. The bike of your choice will be subject to availability at the time of booking.


Below are a range of possible tours, others are available but the thing to remember is that we can also tailor make a tour for you, so just let us know when and allow us to design a tour for you and your bike.
