Pisa to Sicily – 9 Day Challenge
Our popular Italian classic repackaged for those looking for more challenging riding. A sensational ride down the Mediterranean coast of Italy from the iconic leaning tower, finishing with a day in Sicily.
For some riders a day just isn’t worth doing unless the mileage nudges 3 figures (miles!) and this trip is designed for them. Our tried and tested classic Italian route but repackaged for 9 days riding.
Guest must make their own way to Pisa Airport, from where we will provide transport to Marina di Pisa where we will spend our first night. Our route immediately takes us on the coastal road before heading inland to enjoy the beautiful Tuscan fields and villas. As we approach Rome we pass Lake Bracciano before squeezing past the city for a night just south of Fiumincino.
Once south of Rome we follow the coast road before once again before heading inland to skirt the bustling sprawl of Naples, stopping the night in Pompei. We must then climb over the hills to Amalfi and follow the stunning Amalfi coast. The descent into Amalfi must rate as one the greatest switchbacks anywhere in the world and an incredible ride!
Eventually the terrain becomes flatter with many tunnels and viaducts to ease the way as we head down to the foot of Italy, before boarding a ferry for the short crossing to Messina and a final day of riding along the southern Sicilian coast to Catania from where, after a good night’s rest, we fly home.
