Riding in Italy provides a depth of experience matched by few places in the world. Our Tuscany Sardinia Corsica Tour is more than just a motorcycle adventure; it’s an experience for all your senses. Twisty and challenging, the roads of coastal Sardinia and mountainous Corsica thrill with every kilometer. We spend a few days on these islands enjoying first-class coastal resorts.

Before and after the islands, the rolling hills and medieval-era, hill-top villages of Tuscany yield to the great cities of Florence, Siena and Pisa, which offer stunning art and architecture, not to mention exquisite regional food and wine. The final award to your senses before heading back to Venice is the amazing collection of coastal villages known as Cinque Terre.

Day by day

Day by day

Day 1: Arrival to Venice

Fly in to the beautiful city of Venice.

We'll meet you at the airport and take you to your hotel. Depending on your time of arrival, we may be able to direct you to the bus or taxi for an afternoon of strolling in Venice. At 5 PM we'll meet for a tour briefing and after that head for a welcome dinner at a classic Italian Trattoria.

Day 2: Venice – Florence

We are up early today, and from Venice, we ride south.

Here you'll start to experience the fabulous riding which makes Italy famous as a touring destination. As we pass through Bologna, we can stop and tour the Ducati factory and museum. Bologna is famous for its distinctive cuisine, including lasagna and tortellini. After lunch, the road gets nice and twisty through the Apennine Mountains, a range of mostly green and wooded mountains which form the backbone of Italy. Great riding begins here and continues for the next two weeks! In the evening we pull into Florence, a colorful and beautiful city with a rich Renaissance history.

Day 3: Florence rest day

Ride out of Florence on the curvy, low mountain roads, experiencing the legendary beauty of the Tuscan countryside.

One can ride for what seems like forever, only stopping for lunch in a small village to sample the wonderful fresh farm produce this area has to offer. Or you can spend the rest-day in the fabled city of Florence and see all the attractions that are on offer. Start with a stroll to the Cattadrale di Santa Maria del Fiore, or Duomo, with its famous, colorful, towering cupola. Then take a walk over the city's famous Old Bridge, the Ponte Vecchio. If art interests you, the Galleria Degli Uffizi houses the greatest collection of Renaissance art in the world. And don't miss Michelangelo's 'The David' at the Galleria dell'Accedemia.

Day 4: Florence – Siena

Today we take to the roads between Florence and Siena.

Some of the best motorcycle touring can be found here--undulating roads through the scenic vineyards of the Chianti wine-growing region, and through Caprese Michelangelo, the birth place of the famous artist. Along the way, small castles sometimes house a winery or a traditional Tuscan restaurant. Here, it is possible to sample some Chianti with our traditional Tuscan dinner. In the evening we pull into Siena.

Day 5: Rest day in Siena

On the rest day, a ride through the Montepulciano and Montalcino area provide fantastic hilly terrain and pretty, little villages set amongst fields of alfalfa and sunflowers.

Turn after wide turn leads us through the undulating terrain that Tuscany offers. Or you can simply enjoy Siena, one of Italy's most enchanting medieval towns. Stroll in the Piazza del Campo, the sunny main square where the locals gather, or wander the warren of narrow, medieval alleyways.

Day 6: Siena - Livorno (ferry crossing to Sardinia)

From Siena, we head northwest towards Livorno.

We'll experience more of the rolling green hills and picturesque farmland that makes the Tuscan countryside legendary. We stop in San Gimignano, where the 15 towers of this walled hill town look like a medieval Manhattan. We then ride to Pisa and take in one of the most delightful oddities in the world, the Leaning Tower. In Livorno, we board an overnight ferry for Sardinia and spend the night on the boat in comfortable cruise cabins.

Day 7: Olbia – Cala Gonone

Some of the best roads in the whole of Italy can be found in Sardinia, and the fantastic riding is the main reason we are there.

Geographically distinct from the mainland, Sardinia is made up of vibrantly green gorges and valleys and spectacular stretches of unspoiled coastline. Here you will experience the narrow twisties, hairpin turns, and cliff-hanging precipices of some of the most exciting motorcycle roads in the world. We disembark the ferry at Olbia and then head out to get our first taste of this fantastic riding.

Day 8: Rest day in Cala Gonone

The town of Oliena provides a base for exploring the western side of the island.

We'll spend a full day here to really explore and truly appreciate the amazing riding. Turn after turn of tight arcs takes us through the mountainous interior, and the views are stunning. Sardinia has a proud history dating back to Paleolithic times, marked by circular stone fortresses called nuraghe. Thousands of these remain, scattered throughout the island, and provide for interesting exploration during rest stops.

Day 9: Cala Gonone – Alghero

Today we head to the eastern side of the island via near- perfect Sardinian roads.

Superb asphalt and twisties combined with practically no traffic make Sardinia a rider's paradise. Tonight, seafood is on the menu, and we stay at the beautiful coastal town of Alghero, providing a wonderful and scenic night's rest after a big day of vigorous and memorable touring.

Day 10: Alghero – Bonifacio

One last extraordinary Sardinian ride leads us to the coastal town of Castelsardo, one of the two fortified strongholds on Sardinia Island.

We'll take a walk through the alleyways of the city center up to the Castello, the citadel. We than take a scenic ferry to Corsica, a proud island with an independent identity, now part of France. In contrast to our days in Italy, here we'll ride through villages which have a French feel. We end the day in Bonifacio, a seaside city perched on towering limestone cliffs.

Day 11: Bonifacio – Porto

Like Sardinia, Corsica provides for some fabulous once-in-a-lifetime rides.

Often known as the Mountain in the Sea, Corsica has more mountains and rivers than any Mediterranean island. From Bonifacio, we ride the mountainous inland, passing through the small village of Piana, its spiky red granite rocks rising up to 440m above the azure sea. We end up the day in Porto, a little seaside resort on the west coast, where luckily you can catch the most dazzling sunset in the Mediterranean.

Day 12: Porto - Bastia

Another day of great twisties takes us inland through the city of Corte in the center of the Corsican Mountains.

We head back to the coast to stop in the fishing port and nowadays the popular summer vacation spot of Saint Florent. From here on we continue to Bastia, home of the most famous man in the history of Corsica, Napoleon Bonaparte.

Day 13: Bastia – Cinque Terre

In the morning you can head north for a phenomenal ride to Cap Corse, a 40 km long peninsula at the northern tip of the island, where villages perched on cliffs and secluded sandy coves fringe the coastline.

After lunch we'll take a ferry back to the mainland and continue to our destination in Cinque Terre, one of Italy's most scenic treasures.

Day 14: Rest day in Cinque Terre

Cinque Terre consist of five villages- Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza, and Monterosso--that all face the sea, and are cut off by mountains choked with olive groves and dry-stone walled vineyards.

We'll spend the rest day exploring these great little villages that have been spared from a propagation of T-shirt shops and tacky souvenir stands. Cars and motorbikes are not allowed in the villages. We'll use the boats from which the views are truly spectacular. Or you can choose to hike on scenic footpaths through vineyards and forests.

Day 15: Cinque Terre - Venice

In the morning, we ride over the Apennine Mountains and soon reach the town of Maranello, the home of the Ferrari factory and museum, which we can visit.

You can also rent a Ferrari and go for a spin around the town or into the mountains. Take in the last of beautiful Tuscany on our ride home. The sight of this unforgettable landscape will stay with you forever. We ride towards Bologna and end end in romantic Venice.

Day 16: Flight home from Venice

Depart Venice.

Spending one or two nights in Venice at the end of the tour is of course a great idea, especially if you have not done so at the beginning. Take a boat ride on the Grand Canal, Venice's main waterway lined with Renaissance palaces. You can disembark at the Piazza San Marco and stop to appreciate the intricate architecture of Basilica di San Marco. Then wander the streets, marveling at the sheer number of tiny arched bridgeways over the many, meandering canals.
