Cycling holidays in Italy

The magic of Italy - beguiling landscapes, aged and charming towns and sun and art in abundance topped with fab fresh produce, wines and menus. It’s a country of hills and mountains too, idyllic for keen cyclists but not so good for those wanting gentle travels. That’s where we come in! The Carter Company team have taken many personal trips on two wheels to Italy, so we know it pretty well. We have found kinder routes in Tuscany, Piedmont and Emilia Romagna that stay true to our commitment to slow travel, allowing you the luxury of time to soak up the sights and sounds of your surroundings, and to sample the best local produce and wine along the way whilst on your gentle cycling holiday in Italy. Absolutely wonderful hotels are included too so you will be spoilt! These stunning journeys take you through quaint villages and countryside lanes lined with cypress trees - it’s impossible not to become enchanted by the landscape on offer. Visit olive groves and vineyards for tastings. And then there’s the towns and cities famous the world over for their extraordinary histories, artistic treasures and cultural wealth. Take in the castle in Racconigi, Bra’s Baroque streets, Cesenatico’s canal scene, the mosaics in Ravenna, architecture in Lucca and the innumerable gems of Florence.
