Amalfi Coast to coast (7 days)

This is a 7 day motorcycle tour to Southern Italy and the Amalfi Coast. We ride from Rome to the Amalfi coast, then across the south of Italy to the Adriatic sea and back to Rome. Enjoy the views of these amazing coastlines and the scenery of the deep Italian south. Matera, Basilicata and Apulia offer fantastic scenery and outstanding food. This is a very compact tour of what Southern Italy can offer, but intensely great!

Day by day:

Day 1: We set off from Rome early on a Sunday morning whilst the eternal city is still sleeping or having its early cappuccino. We reach the Amalfi Coast mainly on the ancient Appian way. Lunch in the small fishing village of Sperlonga with fantastic buffalo mozzarella and Bassiano ham. Along our way we have the chance of visiting Pompei with a professional guide before ending the day in Amalfi itself. 

Day 2: we have a full day to enjoy this amazing coastline. We visit Positano, Ravello and ride the small back roads all the way to the tip of the Sorrento peninsula and the along the amazing coastal road of the Amalfi Coast.

Day 4: From the coast we head inland across the mountains of Basilicata. We explore the small village of Corleto Perticara and ride through the Small Dolomites of Lucania before reaching Matera where we shall sleep amongst the UNESCO site of the Sassi of Matera, ancient dwellings carved in the limestone. An incredible setting.

Day 5: From Matera we ride to Alberobello, the town of the cone shaped houses known as Trulli, and from there head for the coast to the town of Polignano a Mare for lunch. In the afternoon our itinerary will take us across the Murgia region to visit the octagonal castle of Castel del Monte, before ending our day in the sea town of Trani with its white marble cathedral by the sea.

Many curves, incredible coastlines and an ancient forest, called the Foresta Umbra (umbra = dark). Lunch in Vieste and final destination Termoli in Molise, the small region of Italy no one (even Italians) ever remembers.
