Cycling holidays in North Italy
On a cycling holiday in the north of Italy the focus is on pleasure cycling! Countryside, culture and cuisine sweeten your cycling holiday, day by day. Do you prefer the mountains? Or the sea? No matter what you prefer, the well developed cycle paths take you through the different parts of North Italy. In South Tyrol, the high mountains peaks and the romantic river valleys are fantastic. The hospitality of the locals and the rustic cuisine in South Tyrol are simply great. Don't miss tasting some Tyrolean apple strudel and a glass of wine to go with it of course! The Mediterranean shows itself from its best side with its long sandy beaches in Veneto and Tuscany. The region around the centre of Italy is known as the Emilia Romagna. A lot of delicacies such as parmesan, balsamic and lambrusco come from here. And you have to try them all on your cycling holiday. Enjoy La Dolce Vita with the many culinary highlights Italy has to offer: from the hearty dishes in South Tyrol to the fine truffles of the Piemont. But art, culture and history are not in any shortage either. Impressive destinations along the route are found in the pulsing cities of Venice, Turin, Pisa and Florence - just to mention a few. Look forward to all that and more on one of our cycling holidays in North Italy!Show more Show less
