Italy by motorbike is more beautiful
Italy represents a priceless treasure trove for any traveler and still more for bikers. Discovering Italy by bike is an added value that permits you to blend completely with such an extraordinary environment and to plunge into a variegated and unique landscape in the world. The roads of Italy stimulate the bikers’ drive, curiosity and fantasy. A continuous challenge to reach a destination that will turn out to be extraordinary in any case. Our motorcycle guided tours are characterized by a miscellany of landscapes and events to discover a country in a different way. Along some of the world’s most spectacular mountain roads, across hills that appear to be painted by Renaissance artists, discovering fascinating routes that lead to the sea. In this “container” there is a universe rich in history, traditions and cultures that manifest themselves in a different and incredible way in every region. Every city or village, even the small ones, can represent an interesting destination worth visiting. Following the traces of history, culture, wine and food or of folklore, on a bike you can get to know Italy deeper. The intrinsic curiosity of the biker makes the difference and closes the circle of our proposals. All of us, passionate bikers, try to maintain high our profile of responsible and conscientious travelers. We travel carefully and we respect nature. Drive “slow” and with the greatest attention. In this way, Italy by motorbike will appear even more beautiful and you will undoubtedly live an unforgettable experience.

Riding in Italy (rules and tips)
In Italy people use their bike mostly for fun during the week-ends, especially on the East Coast. Italian people use their bike everyday just for one simple reason: if you have a motorcycle you can avoid traffic, by jumping the queue of cars and getting quickly quickly the green light. In addition to this, you can easily find parking places, even on the sidewalk. The main roads we will ride through are winding country roads in areas with intense agriculture activity. That is why we may sometimes come across farm machinery, so pay attention! Riding in major towns: there are thousands of little mopeds and scooters in all major towns - you will have to watch out for them. Highways are similar to the main roads of the US, that’s why I would expect no problem there. On highways the speed limit is 130 km/hr (about 80 miles/hr). We choose for you a route that makes you  better appreciate driving  a motorcycle  in an unknown country.


Jet lag
Our friends who arrive from afar should not underestimate the importance of acclimatization for their safety. Motorcycle riding in itself requires more attention and concentration than driving a car, especially if you do not know the Italian road signs, even more so if you’re not used to riding on the right side of the road. If you are jet-lagged, we strongly recommend  that you take a day or two to acclimatize before you get on your bike. 
Our motorbike trips are characterized by a  road map that begins with a relaxing day for you  to look around and prepare yourself before starting your motorcycle journey.
Take advantage of our preferential hotel rates to arrive in Italy 48 hours before the tour begins, and start discovering the Beautiful Country (Il Bel Paese) with a nice relaxing “recovery” day strolling around and shopping.
What better way to reset your body clock than wandering through the historic center of one of the world’s most beautiful art cities?
