If you enjoy perfect temperatures, longer days and stunning spins into a sea of colors and scents, then Springtime cycling in Italy is not to be missed. 

Zig zagging through fields of wheat, lavender, poppies, buttercups, thistle and clover, the exploding colors will not only brighten (and perfume) your ride, they will make your soul sing. 

Pair the blooming of succulent reds, purple, yellow, and bright green wheat against the white-washed village of Ostuni on La Bella Puglia bike tour, the ancient cobblestone of the Via Francigena in Central Italy, alongside the brilliant costumes of the Ceri Festival on our Bike Across Italy, or the bright blue Mediterranean on Bike Across Sicily or A Taste of Amalfi bike tours, and you have FIVE great reasons to take a bike tour with Ciclismo Classico this spring!
