On Day 5 our ride takes us on the SS1 Via Aurelia over one of the best roads in Italy, Passo del Bracco between La Spezia and Sestri Levante. We then enjoy lunch in Monterosso al Mare and return to Lerici riding the high coastal road above the villages of the Cinque Terre. Amazing views and more great riding. For anyone not wishing to ride there are ferries that connect all the Cinque Terre with Lerici. The view of the coast from the sea is also fantastic.

On Day 6 takes us to Modena. We ride over two amazing passes. The first one out of carrara is the Passo del Vestito. You’ll get a chance to witness close up the amazing quarries where the finest white marble is extracted since Michelangelo’s time. The second pass the the Abetone pass which will lead us to Maranello, home of Ferrari cars. Our hotel isn’t far away in the heart of Modena so we have time to visit the galleria Ferrari with plenty of time.

On Day 7 we’re in what is known as Motor Valley. Maserati, Lamborghini, Pagani, Ducati are all within a few miles from each other. It will be a morning of museums and amazement. After lunch we head to Florence along the road that in 2003 allegedly spurred the development of the Multistrada 1000DS, the SS65 over two iconic passes, Futa and Raticosa.

Day 8 you can take a day off riding and spend your time visiting Florence. In alternative we’ll take you on a fun ride across the Chianti Classico region. Rolling hills and vineyards make for a special day. We do return to base early so that riders can also spend some time in Florence.

On Day 9 we’re aiming for Cortona. As usual we take the long way round. We head north to the Mugello area, yes, near the circuit, and then experience one of the most famous motorcycle passes in Central Italy, il Passo del Muraglione.

On Day 10 our loop ride takes into Marche to visit Urbino, and for the fans of Valentino Rossi, Tavullia. Getting there and coming back has us riding two amazing roads full of turns and great scenery. Some friends have named this loop the Italian Nurburgring because of the quality of the roads and the absence or traffic.

Our route on Day 11 takes us through Umbria on some lovely roads to Gubbio and Assisi. These two towns are a must when in Umbria. We then reach Norcia and head for the Sibillini mountains, staying in the lovely Castelluccio di Norcia. In June the plains of Castelluccio are in flower and its a feast for your eyes. We stay the night in a small agriturismo overlooking the plain. A quiet perfumed summer night!

 

It’s Day 12 and more mountains await. We head southeast and enter the region of Abruzzi. We reach Campo Imperatore and view the highest peak of Central Italy, the Corno Grande del Gran Sasso (2919masl). The landscape is amazing and quite unique. We stay in another small village just below the high plain.

From the top of the Majella, which is very close to the Adriatic coast, on really clear days you can see the Croatian islands. We stay the night in the very interesting town of Sulmona, home town of Ovidius, the ancient Roman poet.
