If you're looking for an exciting and unique way to experience the beauty of Italy, then you should join a cycling tour. Cycling is a fun and immersive way to explore a new country, and Italy is the perfect destination for it. In this week's blog, we'll discuss the top reasons why you should join a cycling tour in Italy (hopefully with Tourissimo!)
Italy is a country that is known for its rich history, stunning landscapes, delicious cuisine, and passionate people. All of this makes it the perfect destination for a cycling vacation. Here are just some of the reasons why you should join a cycling tour in Italy.
Discover Hidden Gems
One of the best things about joining a cycling tour in Italy is that it allows you to explore hidden gems that many tourists miss out on when they travel by bus or even by car. Cycling through the countryside and small towns is a great way to see Italy's beauty up close. At Tourissimo, we know Italy intimately and can take you to some truly stunning places that you've probably never heard of.
Stay Active While on Vacation
Another great reason to join a cycling tour in Italy is that it allows you to stay active while on vacation. Not only will you feel better physically, but you'll also be able to fully appreciate the beauty of Italy and the scenery around you. Cycling is a low-impact exercise that's suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels. At Tourissimo, we strive to make a cycling vacation accessible to as many people as possible. E-bikes are available for those who need an extra boost, and extra miles can be added to many days' rides for those who want more.
Connect with Like-Minded People
Joining a cycling tour in Italy is also a great way to connect with like-minded people who share your love for travel, adventure and Italian culture. You'll be part of a group of people who are all there for the same reason, which creates a sense of community and camaraderie. You'll have the opportunity to make new friends, share stories, and create memories that will last a lifetime. Many people who meet as strangers on a Tourissimo tour end up forming long-lasting friendships, and it is not uncommon for them to travel together year after year.
Let Someone Else Do the Planning
Planning a trip to Italy can be stressful, especially if you're not familiar with the language or the culture. Joining a full-service cycling tour like the ones Tourissimo offers takes the stress out of planning, as all the logistics are taken care of for you. We plan your route, book your accommodations, and provide support throughout your trip. All you have to do is show up and enjoy the ride!
Eat Delicious Italian Food
It's no secret that Italy is known for its delicious cuisine. When you join a cycling tour in Italy, you'll have the opportunity to taste some of the country's most delicious dishes. From fresh pasta to wood-fired pizza and gelato, to lesser-known regional specialties, you'll be able to indulge in all the Italian food you can handle. At Tourissimo, just as important as planning the cycling routes is choosing the right restaurants and our guides hand-pick many of the places where you'll eat while on tour.
Experience Italian Culture
Cycling through Italy is also a great way to experience the country's unique culture. You'll have the opportunity to meet locals, visit small towns, and see famous landmarks up close. You'll also have the chance to learn about Italian history and art through guided tours of cities, museums and other cultural attractions. Even though most of the details are taken care of for you while on tour with Tourissimo, we leave plenty of room for personal exploration. You'll be given GPS routes of the tour and are encouraged to ride (and explore) at your own pace.
Enjoy Beautiful Scenery
One of the most compelling reasons to join a cycling tour in Italy is the stunning scenery you'll get to enjoy, and each region offers something different. From dramatic coastlines to lush, rolling vinyards, to ancient hilltop towns, you'll activate all of your senses and take in the beauty of the unique landscape.
