Top 10 cycle rides in Europe - 3 in Italy

Top 10 cycle rides in Europe - 3 in Italy | Italia Mia | Scoop.it
  1. Piedmont, Italy: Acqui Terme to Relais & Chateaux San Maurizio - Just imagine cycling over the famous Langhe hills, an intimate landscape filled with vineyards, truffles, medieval towns like Montabone and Rocchetta Palafea, and stunning panoramas of an ancient landscape.
  2. Puglia, Italy: the coastal road to Leuca - This is one of the most stunning coastal roads in the world with breathtaking views of cliffs and bays. The ride meanders through the fishing village of Santa Cesarea Terme, famous for its Moorish architecture and thermal waters, and continues along the coast passing spectacular sea caves and the town of Castro, where Virgil claims the legendary Aeneas first made landfall in Italy.
  3. Hvar, Croatia: around Hvar Island to Paklinski Otoci
  4. Tuscany, Italy: through the Crete Senesi and the back roads into Siena - Have you ever been on a ride where you exclaim “this is the most beautiful view I have ever seen” and then your climb another hill, turn a corner and declare, “ok,no, actually this the most beautiful view I have ever seen”, and then you climb a little further, turn another corner and proclaim, “really, this is definitely the most beautiful view I’ve ever seen”. Well, that’s what this bicycle ride from Montalcino to Siena is like, especially the final 11k climb up these challenging hills into Siena. This route takes you along the bare ridges of the Crete Senesi through Asciano and Vescona to Arbia and then follows the timeless back roads up a series of challenging hills to enter Siena in truly evocative fashion. This is a definitely a ride worth taking!
