The Italian country is so big that it offers many options for cycling enthusiasts. In fact, the Italians have always breathed classic cycling, since the Giro d'Italia is a stage race that uncovers great passions in the cycling. For those people who like to emulate their Italian idols in the ports of the Alps we organize several trips to areas such as the Dolomites, Piemonte, or the Alps of northern Italy in general, even with incursions in Switzerland and Austria.

Cycling in Italy has a special character, something that makes it different from the rest, an epic that has been gestated since the great stages seen on TV. Great Italian cyclists have starred epic battles in the mountains of the Italian Alpes like Gino Bartali, Fausto Copii, Marco Pantani, Mario Cipollini among others and as the current Vincenzo Nibali or Fabio Aru. We must not forget the great brands of accessories that are produced in Italy and are fully linked to Italian cycling such as Campagnolo, Sportful, Castelli, Diadora, among many other major bicycle manufacturers that are currently in the professional peloton like Pinarello, Bianchi, Colnago.
These exploits have been carried out in ports of great name that we travel every year in trips organized for private groups and in our trip with our own name: DoloMítica. Undoubtedly one of the most visual and characteristic ports is the Stelvio with its 2,757m height and its 48 curves or "tornanti" in Italian are a real spectacle and pilgrimage of cyclists during the summer when there is no snow in the way. Other steps of great name and importance are the Gavia, Mortirolo, Giau or Agnelo.
Discover Italy with Terra Bike Tours
Usually in the guided trips to Italy we collect the groups in cities with enough air flow for the comfort of the clients that travel from more distant countries. This is how we usually collect the groups in Milan, Venice or Torino, cities that are very close to the main areas of the Italian Alps. As regards to the less sporty routes, more touristy without doubt one area is the most popular to cycle and that is Tuscany.
A region full of small medieval villages, vineyards and endless ups that allow the not so skilled cyclist to travel and visit in a few days the wonders offered by the towns of the region with capital in Florence. Nor should we forget other areas that are equally valid for cycling trips in general and cycling in particular as are the islands of Sardinia and Sicily as well as the boot heel in Puglia. These three regions offer great possibilities, although perhaps they are not as popular as the previous ones.
