Best Photography Locations On Bike Across Italy

Take a cross-country bike tour of our beloved Italy on Bike Across Italy, our longest running tour.  Thirty years ago, Ciclismo Classico founder Lauren Hefferon decided to trace her mother’s Italian roots by way of a solo bike trip of central Italy and thus, Ciclismo Classico was born. On this 11-day coast-to-coast bike tour, you’ll experience four regions of Italy: Le Marche, Umbria, Lazio, and Tuscany. These regions are most celebrated for their rich history, distinctive local cuisines, and stunning panoramas. Each day highlights Italy’s best hilltop villages and most scenic bicycling routes, from the incredible ascent to Orvieto to the grand finale of the Tomobolo di Feniglia.

To help you get a taste of this Ciclismo Classic, we’ve gathered our best photos to showcase the locations, spirit, vitality, and richness of this timeless and epic journey.

Feast your eyes on Bike Across Italy!
