EASY ITALY Platinum tour in partnership with
the Stelvio International Metzeler Motorcycle Rally
Based around the most important motorcycling event in the European calendar, the Platinum tour springs from ItalyOnMotorbike’s official partnership with the Stelvio International Metzeler Committee, organizer for over 40 years of the biggest multi-brand motorcycle rally in Italy during the last week end of June or first of July.
The exclusive Platinum tour , a proposal of great value packed in 4 days in the saddle, is obviously dedicated to the Lombardy Alps with their jewel in the crown, the majestic Stelvio pass, the second highest vehicle accessible pass in Europe (2,758 m above sea level), famous for its 48 hairpin turns on the Tyrolean face and 36 hairpin turns on the Lombard side. An excellent opportunity for those who want to live close and in a special way the Stelvio International Metzeler Motorcycle Rally and experience the thrill of challenging Alpine roads in a very special period when thousands of motorcyclists gather to celebrate together their passion for motorcycles.
It is a ride through jaw-dropping high-mountain landscapes by day with the festive, adrenaline-fuelled atmosphere of the motorcycle rally in the evenings at its base, in Sondalo …
Want to put your riding skills to the test in the mountains, amid hairpin bends and major climbs and descents? Then the Platinum tour is for you. It is the trip for hardcore riders who are mainly interested in feeling the tarmac beneath their wheels in a magnificent setting, yet without neglecting the touristic dimension.

More about the touring area
Click on picture to view gallery.
The Alps with their exceptional beauty and majesty are the ideal scenery for a pleasure tour. The variety of landscapes offers new perspectives every few kilometers, passing from beautiful forests to flowered meadows, from green lakes to rocky peaks nearly touching the sky, alternating colors and materials, thus granting us endless emotions. A ride through the unspoilt nature, where the heartwarming background of the unchanged snow-capped peaks captures you. A pleasure for eyes, mind and soul that everyone should reward oneself with to recover from daily stress.
Today high mountain resorts offer to the lovers of nature, healthy lifestyle and fresh air, a holiday the which quality is as high as the peaks which surround you. This is because the mountain people know what the real quality of life is and love offering it to their guests. Villages are often enchanting with their charmingly blossomed chalets and the most famous resorts offer one of the best level services, facilities and shopping in the country.
The hotels are very well specialized in pampering you: at the table where the food is always plentiful and delicious, in the comfortable, cozy and relaxing rooms, even in winter for skiers with their bulky clothes…
We would suggest you to remain one or two more days in this wonderful area to relax in Bormio, that is known not only for its ski slopes and its beautiful mountains but also for its thermal baths (of sulphate bicarbonate alkaline earthy water) since the times of the ancient Romans. What a priceless feeling, after a great ride, treating oneself to a dive of over two thousand years in the history, passing from the Roman Baths to the caves hosting the ancient springs up to the panoramic outdoor swimming pool overlooking the valley of Bormio, immersed in the water with infinite healing properties that flows out from the mountain at a temperature between 37 °C and 40 °C.
A unique experience out of time for the well-being of body and soul. Just think how few in the world have the opportunities of a treat in a spa built more than 2000 years ago and still working!
