ITALIAN ALPS motorcycle tour

29 June - 6 July 2023

A 7 day motorcycle tour which concentrates on the Italian Alps. It starts and ends in Milano we ride the passes from Lake Como to the Dolomites and follow in the steps of the Grand Tour finale but with only one night in Livigno and one in Merano to give us plenty of time to enjoy Stelvio and Gavia passes before spending our time in the Dolomites with some minor overruns into Austria for the motorcycle museum and for a visit to the amazing Grossglockner.

This was designed as a special request from two of our clients which didn't have time to do the full Grand Motorcycle Tour of the Alps. So it's definite starter! Join us!
