This new north-to-south route follows the coastline with spectacular seaside views, before heading inland towards the secret heart of Sardinia. Distinct and exotic, Italian-influenced Sardinia and French-flavored Corsica enchant all who visit their Mediterranean shores and magical hills. In hilly Corsica, called the “beautiful city” by the ancient Greeks, we’ll cycle by jagged purple-pink rock formations, dramatic white cliffs, and translucent blue coves.

We’ll also pedal through the astonishing glittering-red granite rock walls of Les Calanques, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In Sardinia, pastel houses fade into chestnut groves and cork forests, rolling hills take us to thousands of prehistoric Nuraghi towers, and sculpted pink rock formations and dunes melt into the sea. Indulge your deepest Mediterranean fantasy on this Italian island hopping tour.

Confirmed tours are dates that have been selected by us that have a very high probability of reaching the minimum group size for us to run the tour and for you to receive the best Ciclismo Classico experience. These tours are confirmed as much as a year in advance, compared to our regularly scheduled tours which are confirmed around 90 days prior to departure.  When you place your deposit for a confirmed tour, you have the green light to make your pre and post travel plans and even book your flight with our personal guarantee that your tour will run!

Optional Single Supplement

If you are traveling alone, this optional single supplement will guarantee you a room to yourself at each hotel. The cost of a single room is often more than half the price of a shared room, so this additional supplement reflects that increased cost for each night over the course of the trip.
