Tour program details
Day 1: meeting in Verona
Individual arrival of all participants in Verona (Unesco world heritage site) which we recommend you to dedicate AT LEAST one day before or after the tour for a self-contained visit.
We all meet up at our hotel in the afternoon. Around 5:30 – 6:00 PM we go and pick up the rental bikes (if any) and have a short but important briefing, the time to explain a few simple rules for organizing and synchronizing things, thus ensuring that everyone has a safe holiday.
A typical Italian welcome aperitif will be the right occasion to get to know each other.
Day 2: 185 km
The tour starts with a visit of the splendid and ancient small fortified city of Sirmione on lake Garda and a visit of the roman ruins of Grottoes of Catullus. We’ll continue along the lake to then travel some of the most fascinating roads of Italy in a deep canyon before we reach an ancient mountain village with marvelous houses of stone and a profusion of flowers. Finally we’ll arrive to the enchanting city of Trento, founded by the ancient Romans but now featuring all the fascination of the contemporaneous mittel-European towns, where we’ll stop for the night.

We’ll continue in the land of Prosecco (sparkling wine) and finally reach Asiago on the “Sette Comuni” (7 municipalities) plateau, where we’ll spend the night.
Day 7: 240 km
We start our ride roaming around the splendid landscapes of the plateau of Asiago to then dive in the Middle Ages through a visit of the greatest fortification from Trentino and continue along the charming panoramas of the cliffs towards our final destination, the awesome Verona, where we’ll drop off the rented motorbikes before returning to our initial hotel. A lavish farewell dinner is the perfect conclusion for this great adventure together.
Day 8: farewell in Verona
We say our goodbyes after breakfast, leaving you free to go home or explore further the magic of Italy on your own.
