With stays in the finest luxury hotels, traffic free gentle cycle rides to historic villages and towns and long days of relaxation by the pool and at the beach, this is for us a really rather special tour. To this, add wonderful local culinary delights, genteel flat pedalling, and a wealth of history, architecture and wildlife to explore and you have Italy at its very best.

Ravenna holds among its treasures ancient mosaic floors and ceilings, Emilia Romagna is known for its orchards of cherries and peaches, the Grand Hotel in Rimini is a famed film location and Cesenatico has a colourful canal scene. Discover hill top villages, a glorious seaside, olive oil tasting, fishing huts and at the end of the day, more than a bit of luxury to savour and enjoy.
