Italy bike tour reviews.

Trip of a lifetime. Could not have been any better. Would recommend to others.
This tour exceeded my expectations, on so many levels. The riding was wonderful, the countryside was glorious, the food was outstanding....but the attention to detail, from guides Luca and Rikki, was just phenomenal. If you want to tour Tuscany by bike, in a way that make you feel totally connected to the area, book this trip! It will not disappoint!
It’s was a great experience from beginning to end. Not only the cycling routes were beautifully sorted, the tour guide Fabio was amazing, but also the fellow group members from all over the places were super friendly. Highly recommend it.

The Experience

Italian culture.

Italian culture is steeped in the arts, family, architecture, music, and food. Home of the Roman Empire and a major center of the Renaissance, culture on the Italian peninsula has flourished for centuries. Italy is very diverse, but one of its most peculiar characteristics is the fact that every city, even in the most little, is full of things all concentrated together in a very small space. One finds themselves surrounded by historical buildings, churches, statues, ruins, pieces of marble, shops, bars, bakeries, cars, all stuffed in a few square feet. It’s a very intense, sensory experience.

Italian Food & Wine

For Italians, food isn’t just nourishment, it is life. Family gatherings are frequent and often centered around food and the extended networks of families. Wine residues were found on a large ceramic jar that was stored nearly 6,000 years ago in the caverns of a cult site known as Monte Kronio in Sicily.

Landscape of Italy

There are Alpine peaks and hills that face the sea. Villages perched on mountains. There are plains where corn and wheat, sunflowers and vegetables are grown, there are rivers and lakes, terraces built along the sides of the hills where fruit plants, olive trees or vines are grown.

Italy

Enlighten the senses

Italy bike tours.

Of all European countries, none draws visitors over and over again like Italy. A peninsula extending into the Mediterranean Sea, Italy consists of 21 diverse regions of villages and picturesque towns set amidst rolling hills, vineyards, mountains, lakes, cliffs and islands.

Each region has its unique charm, but all share the “Italian” view that life should be taken at a slow pace with time to enjoy conversation, food and drink.

Together, Italy’s regions boast the highest number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the world. Packed with historical treasures, Italy’s cycling tours allow visitors to indulge in the spectacular natural landscape.

“The area was absolutely wonderful... just one adventure after another going through the small villages and beautiful towns.”

OUR REVIEWS

OUR CLIENTS EXPERIENCES

italian bicycle tours

An unforgettable Italian cycling tour of Tuscany should be on top of every rider’s bike bucket list. It is more than picture-perfect. Rolling hills, free-flowing descents and mesmerizing landscapes at every turn. And post-ride, a different sort of magic plays out. The food and wine take centre stage, and the whole experience becomes an indulgent delight. What’s not to love about cycling tours that unlock the magic of Tuscany?

Discover the delight of our tailored bike tours of italy, where every detail is curated to deliver an unforgettable and joyous italian experience..

Our philosophy is that with challenge, you find reward. All of our trips are designed for cyclists and are physically challenging, but some more so than others. From an Italy perspective, the Giro d’Italia and Como, Stelvio & Dolomites tours are generally our most challenging, with L’Eroica and our Tour of Tuscany less demanding overall, and Puglia our easiest tour. On all of our trips, our guides encourage and support riders to step up to their own challenge and go slightly beyond their usual level of riding. Each individual trip is rated for difficulty and to help you decide if it’s right for you, please talk to us anytime.

We believe accommodation is a significant factor in your overall enjoyment of a trip so we always ensure high quality accommodation is included, with your own private bathroom guaranteed.

Depending on the locations, we stay in very good quality three-star-chalets or villas, through to small boutique hotels and sometimes, grand five-star hotels. We like to also have access to a kitchen / outdoor cooking facilities where possible so that we can entertain our guests with a blend of home-cooked dinner parties, often co-hosted with our hosts, and using beautiful local produce, alongside dining in a range of superb restaurants.

All of our trips include the option of some off-the-bike activities as we believe a big part of the enjoyment of a trip is to experience and appreciate the local areas we stay in, as well as riding across their amazing terrain. From wine tastings to must see sights and local cultural experiences, to exploring the villages and towns we are in, we like to include options for you to explore should you choose to. On all tours, you will often have free time post-ride and your choice of activity can often also include massages and visiting wellness centres, therapeutic pools and saunas in and around our accommodation.

Giuseppe Barenghi

Giuseppe Barenghi

Giuseppe Barenghi, owner of Ital Cycling Bike Tours. He has been cycling for decades, competing in almost 150 granfondo events and other types of races. It gives him great joy to share his passion for cycling and his love of Italy's special places with you.

What an unbelievable training camp experience with those I now consider family. The knowledge of the cycling areas and culture combined with feedback and coaching on the road were unmatched. Giuseppe, Ian, Frederica, Cristian, Pavel, and Andrea put together an experience I’ll remember for the rest of my life. Cycling culture of this area, beautiful views, and great roads is truly unreal. You will be challenged beyond your comfort and you will become a better rider because of it. I can’t wait to get back and enjoy another holiday with this team

We spent 5 days recently in Italy with Ital Cycling Bike Tours and our experience was amazing. On our first day, Giuseppe met us in Belagio and immediately from the start we realized that we were going to have a wonderful holiday, We are not major cyclists, but nothing was too much for Giuseppe. He adapted very well to our needs and is an extremely caring, kind and honest person. We toured all the nearby villages and learned all about the history of the area. He was extremely punctual. Although going to the Dolomites was a last minute request on our part it’s an experience that we will never forget. Our 4 days in Garda was equally outstanding. Nothing was too much for Giuseppe and really he made our Italian try a wonderful experience. Thank you from your Canadian friends Pat & Dennis

What can I say about Ital Cycling Bike Tours and the Garda area besides, when can I move in?! This isn't a cycling tour company, its a cycling tour family, the entire crew is a close knit group of friends and family with an intimate knowledge of the Garda, Valpolicella, and Verona areas. Giueseppe, Federica, Ian, Cristian, Pavel, Andrea, and all the other support staff that I have forgotten (Sorry!) are exceptional. The cycling in the area is wonderful, the roads are in phenomenal condition and the terrain offers everything from rolling vineyards, to lake shore views, to 2 hour uphill battles with Monte Baldo. You will not be disappointed by putting your cycling holiday in the hands of this great crew

Biking in Tuscany

Imagine cruising on a bike through Tuscany’s rolling hills, where every pedal push brings you face-to-face with vineyards that stretch out like green seas, ancient olive trees, and old-timey villages that seem to have dodged the bullet of time. Riding a bike here is way more than just getting a good workout; it’s about diving headfirst into a feast for the senses.

You’ve got the gentle breeze kissing your face, the sun making everything glow, the smell of flowers and earth mixing in the air, and views that’ll make you want to stop and take it all in every few minutes. Maybe you’ll hit pause on your ride for a bit to taste some local wine straight from the vineyard or shoot the breeze with the locals who love to spill the beans about their history and traditions.

Tuscany on two wheels? It’s like rolling through a living, breathing museum of what makes Italy so magical, crafting memories that stick around way after you’ve headed back. Whether you’re all about hitting those miles hard or just in it for the chill vibes, Tuscany’s landscapes are the perfect backdrop for an epic adventure.

Biking in the Umbria Region of Italy

Imagine cruising on your bike through Umbria, the secret heart of Italy, where every hill and valley feels like it’s straight out of a storybook. This place is like the chill, less flashy cousin of Tuscany, packed with all the medieval vibes, lush forests, and olive trees you could wish for.

Our Italy cycling tours are like hopping in a time machine, where each turn of the pedal peels back layers of history and gets you closer to the real-deal Italy. The air’s got this earthy, fresh scent, and all you hear is the soundtrack of nature doing its thing. It’s super easy to find yourself hitting the brakes not because you’re tired, but because you’ve just gotta snap a pic or wander into a little village where time seems to stand still.

Whether you’re here for a leisurely ride or looking for a bit of a challenge, Umbria’s hills have got you covered, making sure you feel that good kind of burn that totally justifies diving into the local food scene afterwards. We’re talking pasta with truffles, wine that’ll make you want to write a poem, and olive oil so good you’ll want to drink it. Biking in Umbria? It’s more than just a ride; it’s a full-on plunge into the heart and taste of Italy, minus the tourist crowds.

Biking in Puglia Region of Italy

Imagine biking along the stunning edges of Puglia, where the cool blues of the Adriatic and Ionian seas hug Italy’s heel. Biking here is like stumbling upon Italy’s secret treasure, with a backdrop of ancient olive trees, iconic trulli houses popping up like whimsical mushrooms, and vineyards soaking up the sun.

Puglia is all about the chill vibes, with its gorgeous natural scenes, rich history, and mouth-watering eats. As you pedal through cute coastal spots and the calm countryside, it feels like the world’s slowed down just for you. Maybe you’ll stop for a bite of homemade orecchiette pasta or just to soak up a view that looks straight out of a postcard.

Thanks to the mostly flat roads, anyone can jump on a bike here and feel at ease, drifting into Italy’s quieter corners. Every ride in Puglia is more than just a trip through pretty places; it’s a deep dive into a region full of warmth and stories, leaving you with memories that stick around way longer than your bike tracks.

Biking in the Emilia-Romagna Region of Italy

Gear up for a ride through Emilia-Romagna, the ultimate spot in Italy where good eats meet great tracks. It’s like every kilometer cycled is a step closer to the next mouthwatering treat—think world-class cheese, balsamic vinegar that’s a straight-up game changer, and prosciutto that’ll ruin you for all other hams.

This place isn’t just about working up an appetite; it’s about rewarding every mile with something yummy. Picture zipping through cities like Bologna, where the old-school vibes are as legit as the pasta, or Ravenna, with mosaics so cool they’ll make you stop in your tracks. And don’t even get me started on the small towns, where every corner turned is a new foodie find.

Plus, there are vineyards along the way, perfect for a pit stop to sip some of Italy’s finest vinos. Biking here? It’s a feast for your legs and your taste buds, making every push of the pedal totally worth it.

The team makes us different

We were born on our bikes. We’ve lived most of our lives with a number on our backs. The great Tours, the Monument Classics, the legendary climbs or the rings of the Six Days have taught us everything there was to learn.

Now, we’re happy to be able to pass this know-how on to H&B guests. Climb the Ghisallo or the back of the Stelvio, take a relaxed ride next to a Champion with whom you can share their memories and emotions of the past, or learn the best technique to tackle any terrain. You can’t find this anywhere else.

Italy Bike Tours

Anyone who’s been to Italy and tasted the pasta (or olive oil, or wine, or truffles) will insist that words fail to capture the nuances of flavor. “It’s just different,” they say. If the most treasured souvenir from an Italy vacation is reaching culinary enlightenment, tasting your way through this country reveals that it grows ever bigger with delightful discoveries instead of smaller.

On a bicycle tour, you’re even closer to the land that generously gives forth Piedmontese hazelnuts, Nebbiolo grapes, Sicilian lemons, and Arborio rice. From the snow-capped peaks of the Austrian-influenced Dolomites and the terraced vines of the Cinque Terre to the olive groves of Tuscany and the inviting coast of Puglia, Italy is teeming with unique landscapes, dialects, and culinary traditions. But one thing is universal across these regions: an inherent sense of hospitality rooted in living well and a kind of culinary reverence that every Italian—and every visitor—can appreciate.

From Florence to the Beaches of Nice: How to Watch the 2024 Tour de France

This year’s edition starts in Italy and features one of the toughest opening stages ever, a 206-kilometer ride from Florence to Rimini taking riders through the heart of the Apennine mountains.

110th tour de france 2023 stage 11

How to Watch the Tour de France in the U.S.

How to watch the tour de france in canada, what happened last year, riders to watch, tour de france history.

The Tour de France was first raced in 1903 when journalist (and former bike racer) Henri Desgrange organized the event to promote L’Auto-Vélo, a French sporting newspaper that he edited–and is known today as L’Equipe. The newspaper was actually printed on yellow paper, which fuels one of the narratives surrounding the origins of the maillot jaune . That year’s Tour covered 2,428 km (1,509 mi) spread over just six stages–the average stage length was about 405 km (251 mi)–and only 21 of the original 60 starters finished the inaugural event.

Despite the low number of finishers, the event was an overwhelming success, and the Tour has since become one of the largest sporting events in the world, an event for which teams with multi-million dollar budgets spend years trying to win. For the riders, just a single stage win or day in the yellow jersey is a career-defining achievement. Riders who win the overall title–even just once–go down in history.

This year’s race covers 3,492 km (2,165 mi) spread over 21 stages, with eight days for the sprinters, two individual time trials, seven mountain stages, and about four stages for the punchy opportunists who head up the road in search of “do-or-die” breakaway stage victories–we love those guys.

Here’s everything you need to know about the 2024 Tour de France:

The route of the 2024 Tour de France is unlike any we’ve ever seen, mainly because it’s bookended by two of the biggest “firsts” in the event’s 110-year history: it’s the first to begin in Italy and the first to end outside of Paris (in Nice).

The Tour begins in Florence on Saturday, June 29th, the first of three-and-a-half stages in Italy. And we’re expecting fireworks right away: Stages 1 and 2 are two of the toughest opening stages we’ve ever seen, even harder than the opening stages of last year’s Tour, which took place in the hilly Basque region of northern Spain.

After a day for the sprinters on Stage 3, Stage 4 begins in Pinerolo and brings the race back into France via the 2,642m Col du Galibier. The second-highest climb in this year’s race, the first rider to the summit will win a cash prize given each year in honor of Degrange. By the end of one of the earliest mountain stages in Tour history, the GC battle will be in full swing.

The sprinters will then get two more chances as the race heads north. But the GC battle will resume on Friday, July 5th, with Stage 7, the first of two individual time trials in this year’s Tour. The first week ends with Sunday’s Stage 9, an exciting stage featuring 14 sections of white gravel roads through France’s Champagne region. This will be the first gravel stage in the history of the men’s Tour de France–the women completed a gravel stage of their own through the region in 2022.

After the Tour’s first Rest Day, the race resumes on Tuesday, July 9th, and begins a southwesterly trip–through the Massif Central, which hosts a rugged finish to Stage 11–toward the Pyrenees. Along the way, the sprinters will have a few more opportunities to win a stage before the high mountains return over the weekend.

And they return in a big way, with back-to-back hors categorie (“beyond category”) summit finishes in the mountains that form the border between France and Spain. Saturday’s Stage 12 takes the riders over the Tourmalet–which Desgrange first thought was too hard for the Tour de France–and ends with a finish at the Pla d'Adet ski resort, while Sunday’s Stage 13 ends on the Plateau de Beille–after almost 198km of racing.

As if the mountains aren’t enough cause for excitement, it’s also a holiday weekend: Sunday is Bastille Day–July 14th–so expect the roads on both days to be packed with “festive” fans. By the end of the day, the list of riders capable of winning the 2024 Tour de France will be much shorter than it was a week prior.

The Tour’s third and final week takes the race back east, where an Alpine finale looms. In all, the riders will spend four days in the mountains during the third week, first in the high Alps–with summit finishes at the end of Stage 17 ( at Superdévoluy) and Stage 19 (at Isola 2000). And don’t snooze on Thursday’s Stage 18, a saw-toothed stage from Gap to Barcelonnette that’s filled with short, jagged climbs and could be the perfect place for an ambush–or a Hail Mary–before the final weekend.

But this year’s final weekend is not what we’ve come to expect from Tours of the past. With the Summer Olympics beginning in Paris just five days after the end of the race, this year’s Tour skips its traditional finish on the Champs Elysees and instead finishes in Nice–after the hardest final weekend we’ve seen in decades.

The weekend opens on Saturday, July 20th, with Stage 20, a short but intense stage through the maritime Alps featuring four categorized ascents, including a summit finish on the Category 1 Col de la Couillole.

And just in case that doesn’t settle things, Sunday’s Stage 21 certainly will, as–for the first time in 35 years–the Tour de France ends with an individual time trial. And it’s a hard one: a 33.7 km race against the clock that takes the riders over the Col d'Èze, a tough Category 2 ascent that always features in the final stage of March’s Paris-Nice, an 8-day stage race that Tour contenders often use to build form during the first part of their seasons.

This might bode well for American fans–for two reasons. First, the last time the Tour de France ended with an individual time trial, American Greg Lemond defeated France’s Laurent Fignon–who entered the day wearing the yellow jersey–to win the Tour by eight seconds.

And this year’s winner of Paris-Nice–which finished with a stage over the Col d'Èze–was American Matteo Jorgenson (Visma-Lease a Bike), a 24-year-old from Idaho who took the yellow jersey on that final stage. Jorgenson will be lining up at this year’s Tour; could history repeat itself? We can’t wait to find out.

When it comes to watching the Tour de France, you’ve got lots of options. NBC’s Peacock ($5.99/month or $59.99/year) streams all events organized by A.S.O., which means you can watch the Tour de France now and then the Tour de France Femmes in August. (And if you’re looking for ad-free coverage, you’ll need a subscription to Peacock Premium Plus, which runs $11.99 per month or $119.99 for the year.)

The Peacock app is available on Roku, Apple devices, Android and AndroidTV devices, Google platforms, Chromecast, Xbox consoles, PlayStation 4 and 5 consoles, VIZIO SmartCast TVs, and LG Smart TVs. You can also watch online via the Peacock website.

If you have a good cable package and prefer conventional viewing on your television, you’re in luck: NBC will offer the race to cable subscribers via the USA Network and CNBC. Live coverage often starts around 7 a.m. EDT, so 9-to-5ers will likely need to record each stage and watch later. (Check the full schedule for details.)

If you’re in Canada, FloBikes ($29.99/month CDN) is the best way to watch the Tour de France. All 21 stages are available live and on-demand on FloBikes.com, the FloSports iOS app, and the FloSports app for Amazon FireTV, Roku, and Apple TV.

Denmark’s Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma) won the 2023 Tour de France, defeating Slovenia’s Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) to defend his title from 2022. The two champions engaged in a tense battle during the first two weeks of the race and entered the second Rest Day separated by just ten seconds on the Tour’s General Classification.

110th tour de france 2023 stage 14

But Vingegaard exploded at the start of the third week, crushing Pogačar in an individual time trial on Stage 16 and then dropping him in the Alps on Stage 17. In just two stages, the Dane’s lead went from ten seconds to more than seven minutes. Pogačar saved face by winning Stage 20, but for the second year in a row, the winner of back-to-back Tours in 2020 and 2021 was forced to settle for second place–and the white jersey as the Tour’s Best Young Rider. Pogačar’s teammate, Great Britain’s Adam Yates–won Stage 1 and wore the Tour’s first yellow jersey–finished third overall.

Belgium’s Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin-Deceuninck) was without question the Tour’s best sprinter. The Belgian won four stages and ran away with the green jersey as the winner of the Tour’s Points Classification. Italy’s Giulio Ciccone (Lidl-Trek) won the polka dot jersey as the Tour’s King of the Mountains.

Jonas Vingegaard-Hansen (Visma-Lease a Bike)

109th tour de france 2022 stage 11

At this point in time, we’re waiting to hear if Vingegaard will even be starting this year’s Tour de France. The defending champion was one of several Tour favorites taken down in a massive crash at the Tour of the Basque Country in early April. The Dane spent twelve days in the hospital after breaking several bones and suffering a punctured lung in the fall and only resumed training a few weeks ago. Visma-Lease a Bike recently said he has a 50-50 chance of starting the race, but only will do so if the team feels he’s 100% ready to challenge for a third consecutive victory.

Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates)

tadej pogacar

The uncertainty surrounding Vingegaard’s participation makes Pogačar the top favorite. The Slovenian won back-to-back Tours in 2020 and 2021 and scored back-to-back second-place finishes behind the Dane in 2022 and 2023. He’s been training since winning six stages and the General Classification at the recent Giro d’Italia and looks on track to become the first rider since Italy’s Marco Pantani (in 1998) to win the Giro-Tour double.

Primož Roglič (BORA-hansgrohe) and Remco Evenepoel (Soudal–Quick-Step)

Vingegaard wasn’t the only Tour contender who went down in that terrible crash at the Tour of the Basque Country: Slovenia’s Primož Roglič–who was leading the race at the time–and Belgium’s Remco Evenepoel were victims as well, and both riders immediately abandoned the race. Roglič injured his knee–but suffered no major injuries–but Evenepoel needed surgery after breaking his clavicle and scapula.

Unlike Vingegaard, both riders were able to get back to training relatively quickly, and they both competed at the recent Critérium du Dauphiné . Roglič won two stages and the General Classification despite almost cracking at the end of the final stage. Evenepoel won the Dauphiné’s only individual time trial, but showed he still has some room to improve after fading in the mountains. He finished the race in seventh place overall.

Carlos Rodríguez (INEOS Grenadiers)

Rodríguez, who won a stage and finished fifth in last year’s Tour de France, won the final stage and finished fourth overall at the Dauphiné, the latest in a series of high-stage race finishes for the 23-year-old. He’ll likely be joining Colombia’s Egan Bernal (who won the Tour in 2019) and Great Britain’s Geraint Thomas (Who won the Tour in 2018) on the starting line in Florence to form one of the deepest eight-rider line-ups in this year’s race.

Matteo Jorgenson (Visma-Lease a Bike)

If Vingegaard proves unable to start the Tour, don’t be surprised if Visma-Lease a Bike turns to Matteo Jorgenson to lead the team in his place. After winning Paris-Nice and Dwars door Vlaanderen in March, the American spent much of April and all of May at training camps, building form for the summer.

Well, it must’ve worked, as the 24-year-old nearly snatched the Dauphiné from Roglič after riding away with Rodríguez at the end of the final day. In the end, he lost the race by only eight seconds–another interesting coincidence given Lemond’s margin of victory at the Tour in 1989.

The American has never captained a team at the Tour de France, but he raced the French grand tour in 2022 and 2023–so he at least knows what the Tour’s pressure-cooker atmosphere feels like. And he should benefit from the presence of his teammate Sepp Kuss , the American who shockingly won last year’s Vuelta a España and played a pivotal role in each of the six grand Tours won by the team prior to his own victory at the Vuelta last September.
