Italy is a land that inspires romantic notions. The delicious food, fine culture, intriguing history, and gorgeous landscapes all combine to conjure up an image that has people scrambling to explore this country. Pedaling on a bicycle through unique regions and sampling the magic of Italia up close is a trip of a lifetime. Setting off from the medieval city of Siena is an exquisite way to begin. Accompanied by a local and knowledgeable guide you will wind your way through the Val d’Arbia valley; this gorgeous carpet of green, dotted with picturesque villages, is the perfect route for riding. Round it off by sampling Montalcino’s finest and famous Brunello wines with dinner that evening.
Your second day of riding continues to twist, turn and lead you through the maze of villages that so typify the Tuscan region. The dominating castle in Radicofani steals the show today; afterwards, enter the region of Lazio and rest your legs in historic Acquapendente.
Further into the trip, Pitigliano catches the eye, a quiet, beautiful town with a 16th-century synagogue, now an historic center. While the chance to float alongside the wild and peaceful Lake Corbara on another day offers up a welcome change of pace.
Cycle into celebrity status as you set foot in Todi, it is a town renowned for being used often as a movie set. The medieval buildings here enclose the Piazza del Popolo and a wander around the streets before dinner will undoubtedly leave you feeling like a Hollywood star.
Your last day of riding takes you to Assisi. Lurking on the horizon throughout your pedaling, this historic town is captivating in its beauty and it marks a fine place to conclude cycling before devouring a fine farewell Italian meal.
