On Day 1 we shall ride out of Rome on a Sunday morning and ride to the volcanic lakes of Bracciano and Vico, visit the amphitheatre of Sutri and visit the dying village of Civita di Bagnoregio before reaching Bolsena by the biggest volcanic lake in Italy from which it takes its name, Lake Bolsena. (In the picture Civita di Bagnoregio)

On Day 2 we transfer to Siena, but first we ride to the Etruscan towns of Pitigliano and Sorano, then cross the classic Tuscan countryside of the Val d'Orcia visiting Montalcino and Pienza, and reaching Siena along the impressive scenery of the Crete Senesi.

On Day 3 we have designed a loop ride out of Siena to explore the hills to the south west towards Maremma, visit the town of Volterra, famous for its alabaster crafts. We have lunch in Massa Marittima and visit the place where the myth of King Arthur's sword in the rock may have originated, San Galgano.
You can also take a rest and enjoy Siena. There is plenty to see in this beautiful town.

Day 4 will see us reaching Lerici in the region of Liguria, which will be our base to explore the Cinque Terre. Our itinerary to get there will take us to San Gimignano, to Pontedera to visit the Vespa/Piaggio/Gilera museum and to Pisa.

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 our itinerary takes is to Florence. We cross the amazing Alpi Apuane on the Passo del Vestito. Here we can witness the marble quarries where the white marble of Carrara is extracted. We visit Lucca and Vinci before arriving in Florence for another double night stop.

It's Day 7. You can take a day off riding and spend your time visiting Florence, or take 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 8 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. An amazing ride to the top links Tuscany to Romagna. We then reach the hilltop town of Cortona with amazing views over lake Trasimeno

On Day 9 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 10 takes us to Umbria to the town of Orvieto but before we reach Orvieto we have two gems to visit, Gubbio and Assisi. These two towns are a must when in Umbria. Cortona, Gubbio, Assisi and Orvieto are linked by some great twisty minor roads. Orvieto greets us with its amazing cathedral that you can see in the picture. We'll be staying right next to it and you'll be able to enjoy an aperitif just viewing it from the cafe across the piazza.

It's Day 11 and the high mountains await. We head for the Sibillini mountains with peaks of 2475 meters above sea level. Our route first takes us to Spoleto and Norcia before we climb to our small village of 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.

On Day 13 we cross the rest of Campo Imperatore, view the Castle of Roccacalascio and reach Blockhaus, the peak of another Abruzzi mountain range, the Majella. 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.

On Day 14, the last day of this amazing ride we return to Rome along the roads of the National Park of Abruzzi, Lazio and Molise, over the pass known as Forca d'Acero and into the region known as Ciociaria. Our route takes us back into Rome early to beat the Roman rush hour and return the bikes before our farewell dinner.
