From Milan to Rome

A long distance and unforgettable VeloTour across Italy

From Milan to Rome

Bike tours of Italy: The roads to Rome / We leave central Milan heading south, and enter central Rome from the north. In between, the typical Italian landscape with all its myriad changes. From the rural architecture of Lombardy to the cupolas of Florence, from the gentle hills of Chianti to the tuff cliffs of Orvieto and on to the hilly countryside of Tuscia and Lazio.

Steps&stops: Milan, Lodi, Cremona, Busseto, Parma, Bologna, Florence, Siena, Pienza, San Casciano de Bagni, Orvieto, Civita di Bagnoregio, lago di Vico, Rome

Travel Highlights / The Italian landscape offers endless emotion and infinite poetry. On the bike it takes effort as well. But it's effort that's repaid by a thousand surprising horizons, by the color of the sky and the fields, by the shapes of the clouds and the sky. Pedaling along these slow bike tours of Italy from Milan to Rome, you'll be enchanted by the gentle winding of a silent road that rises to settle itself on the ridge. You'll move from the flat, regular ride that only the plains can offer, to the savage rifts of the Apennines. Behind a hairpin bend on the descent your gaze fills with wonder at the sight of Florence from above. Chianti, Siena and the Crete Senesi, Pienza and the Val d'Orcia, and such endless, widespread beauty that we'll never want to leave. Then there's the climb to Orvieto, the city on the cliff, and a thousand other enchanting moments, until the grand finale when you enter Rome by bike. All the way to the Trevi fountain in our Bike tours of Italy!
