Italian Grand Tour

10 - 23 June 2017 2 - 15 September 2017*
9 - 22 June 2018 22 Sept - 5 Oct. 2018*

This is a 12 full riding day motorcycle tour of Italy: the ultimate Italian Motorcycle Grand Tour. The concept is incredibly simple. Take the most important sites in Italy and put them all in a two week tour. Then connect everything with the best roads available and there you have it. A masterpiece!

We start in Rome and end in Venice in the June tour, and *start in Venice and finish in Rome on the September run. We cover the Amalfi Coast, Classic Tuscany, Cinque Terre, visit the Ferrari, Lamborghini and Ducati museums and ride the dolomites. It doesn't get much better than this. 

Day by day:

Day 1: Out of Rome we reach the Amalfi Coast in a day mainly along the SS7 Via Appia. A visit to Pompei is also possible late in the afternoon before reaching Amalfi for the night. 

Day 2: We spend a full day in the Amalfi coast enjoying the sites (Ravello and Positano) and the views this amazing coastline has to offer.

Day 3: We back track on the autostrada to Cassino and after a short visit to the Abbey of Montecassino we ride the foothills of the Abruzzo mountains via Avezzano and Rieti, aiming for the historical town of Orvieto in the Umbria region. 

Day 4: We transfer to Siena via Lake Bolsena and southern Tuscany. Along the way we shall stop in towns such as Pitigliano and Sorano, and visit the Abbey of San Galgano. We will be two nights in Siena. 

Day 5: You can take a rest day in this ancient Tuscan town with lots to see and to do, or take a loop ride around the areas of Chianti and of the Crete Senesi, with visits to Pienza and Montalcino. 

Day 6: We ride north west across Tuscany with stops in San Gimignano, Pisa (leaning tower) and Lucca. We then reach Lerici by the Mediterranean sea across the mountains of Garfagnana. 

Day 7: Loop ride of the Cinque Terre with visit to Portovenere and lunch in Vernazza. These 5 villages of the Ligurian coast rival the charm of the Amalfi Coast from their northern location. 

Day 8: We leave the coast and head north across the Appennino mountain range along some very twisty roads. Whilst entering Modena coming from the Passo del Cerreto we pay visit to a Maserati private collection leaving Ferrari, Lamboghini and Ducati for the following day. 

Day 9: We spend the day visiting the motor museums of the area and riding a quick loop to the top of the Abetone pass SS12. The SS12 was often used as testing ground for the motor producers of the area. 

Day 10: We stay on the SS12 heading north as the Abetone pass becomes the Bernner pass to Austria. We reach Verona for our lunch stop. We stay on the SS12 all the way to Trento and then head to the base of the Sella Group of the Dolomites in Moena/Canazei. 

Day 11: We take the classic Dolomite loop ride over the most famous and beautiful passes like the Pordoi, the Giau, the Fazarego, the Valparola, the Gardena and the Sella passes.

Day 12: After a few more dolomite passes we ride south to Valdobbiadene, famous for the production of the Prossecco DOCG, and then reach our final destination in Venice/Mestre.
