  Motorcycle Tour of the Amalfi Coast and South of Italy

Amalfi Coast and South

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'll head over the Colli Albani and its volcanic lakes, then ride the Lepini, Ausoni and Aurunci mountains (southern Lazio) before reaching Sperlonga for our first night. It will be an easy day allowing all to get acquainted with your rental bike and riding conditions. 

Day 2: We follow the SS7 (Via Appia) and head directly to visit Pompei in the morning. We have a guided visit of this fascinating site and have lunch in Pompei. In the afternoon we have all the time we need to ride the Sorrento peninsula and visit Positano before reaching Amalfi for our overnight stop.

Day 3: After a visit to Ravello and its magnificent Villas, we exit the Amalfi coast and keep going south along the coast viewing the Greek temples in Paestum and the magnificent coastal road from Palinuro to Sapri.

Day 4: From the coast we head inland across the mountains of Basilicata. We ride by the ghost town of Craco and through the Small Dolomites of the South 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" just before ending our day in the sea town of Trani with its amazing cathedral on the ocean.

Day 6: We ride north along the Adriatic coast and explore the spur of Italy's boot, the Gargano peninsula. 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.

Day 7: Time to head back to Rome across Molise and southern Lazio. Rolling hills and relaxing scenery before reaching our starting point in Rome. Farewell dinner and arrivederci to the next adventure.

Only for a small group of riders: 10 people minimum - 12 people maximum. 

It's an intense ride and days are full with lots to see, ride and visit. To keep it within the 7 days we don't have rest days. Our schedule normally is on the bike at 9am and end the day at 6pm. In between we have frequent picture and coffee stops, one cultural visit per day, and a relaxing lunch break. 

Riding skills must be advanced as road conditions can vary quite considerably. Practice slow riding and tight turns in car parks. 

 

TIP: Favour lighter bikes such as the BMW middle weight bike F750GS even when riding two up. Huge power won't help you on this tour. The luggage is in the van anyway.
