Top Guide Tours
We are very excited to welcome you to our new Top Guide Tour series! Since 1989, Ciclismo Classico has prided itself in the world’s top guides. Many of our Ciclismo Classico tour guides have been leading tours for at least 8 years. This new Top Guide tour series is our way to celebrate what our multi-talented, super passionate and charismatic guides love and do best: design itineraries, share their love of cycling and a deliver world class bicycle travel experience to every Ciclismo Classico guest. In 2014 we have asked several of Ciclismo Classico guides, who are guiding their 100th ++ tour with us to design or lead their Ciclismo Classico dream tour. Each dream tour is a blend of a spectacular destination and a special menu of ingredients that make the tour an exclusive once-in-a-lifetime experience for both the guides and our guests. Before these tours even were released to the “general” public, they were SOLD OUT or nearly sold out. WHY? Because anyone who has been on a tour with Ciclismo Classico guides knows that they put their heart and soul into every tour they lead, everything that they do…and isn’t that what life is all about anyway!
Fall alumni savings are not available on top guide tours.
With Isacco Colombo
June 18 - June 24, 2016
Each corner of our itinerary is part of the complex mosaic of sights and experiences of the Italian Lakes. From the UNESCO sites of Orta and Cernobbio to the monumental gardens of Villa Taranto and Villa d’Este, the high-quality cycling and unique, lake-inspired gastronomy put this area on the “to-see” list of the curious traveler.
La Costa Brava
June 11 - June 18, 2016
The Costa Brava, or “rugged coast,” is sprinkled with unspoiled coves, charming seaside towns, and spectacular scenery. You’ll find cultural treasures and marvelous beaches as you cycle along the most scenic coastal roads. Start inland in Girona, sought out by amateur cyclists for early season training, and continue south to Tossa de Mar, perched on the Mediterranean and filled with delicious seafront restaurants and beautiful beaches.
June 12 - June 17, 2016
Discover at a slow pace the beautiful Loire Valley; what once was the exclusive paradise of the kings of France and their court is now a UNESCO site open to visitors from all over the World: we have created an easy itinerary that unfolds between quaint villages, quiet forests, perfect gardens and magnificent castles. All our hotels are rated four stars and are located on castles or ancient estates.
Bike in Brittany
June 25 - July 2, 2016
With its Celtic heritage, tangible in people, landscape, language, food and tradition, Brittany is the less French of French regions; our itinerary unfolds west to east along wild seaside cliffs, romantic lighthouses, glorious, unspoiled nature and character-packed towns. Cycling in Brittany is never boring: the roads are quiet and allow riders to fully appreciate the surroundings, the terrain changes continuously and offers enough challenge to a wide range of intermediate riders.
