Guided Bike Tours in Italy

As of 2019 Cycle Europe is thrilled to announce its new line of affordable guided cycling tour itineraries in Europe -with our first set of itineraries debuting in Italy.  With select dates offering a support vehicle and local cycling guide we invite you to join us on your next bicycle tour. Enjoy the company of a small group as you pedal quiet roads from one cafe to the next.  Accommodations are comfortable and have everything you need with a private bathroom and hearty breakfast.  Unlike a self-guided tour, a guided tour includes a local guide as well as the local insight that comes with joining someone who knows the area like the back of their hand. See below for a selection of current cycling tour itineraries in Italy.

Want tips on how to decide between a self-guided tour and a guided tour – check out our blog post that compares these two styles of tour side by side.
