Discover non touristy, authentic Italy on this delightful motorcycle journey!
Ride away from the hustle of Milan direction south along the Adriatic coast and the Apennines. A curve after another our trip will start from the Ducati Museum to wind up after almost a week on a private sailing boat admiring the sunset off the Adriatic coast.
Lombardia, Emilia Romagna, Marche, Umbria, Tuscany, Lazio – these beautiful names will make perfect sense to you after this motorcycle trip.
Marche and Umbria, that are still not very touristy, will definitely win your heart by their laid back charm. These regions are considered to be motorcyclist’s’ paradise, as about 30% of their territory is covered by mountains and the rest of it – by beautiful sealike hills. No wonder that many motorcycle pilots grew up here, including Valentino Rossi. We can not miss his cosy hometown and some other beautiful medieval towns on the way – Urbino, Ascoli Piceno and San Benedetto del Tronto. Get ready to taste some mouth-watering local dishes: Piadina, olive ascolane and one of the best types of Italian ham – prosciutto crudo di Norcia.
Ride along the sea coast and up to the mountains, enjoying the curvy roads, delicious local food and picturesque historic towns. An innovation for this tour is that your partner can join us for a full tour, a part of the tour or enjoy the seaside to catch up with us at the end of the tour.
