TWO CENTRE ITALIAN EXTRAVAGANZA!

Lake Garda has many attractions, and after two overnight stops enroute from Calais we stay for three nights in a super three star hotel only a short walk from the northern shores of this enormous lake and the centre of the resort of Torbole.

You can take a boat trip the length of the lake or take a lakeside ride through the many delightful villages that look out over its tranquil waters. Visit the castle at Malcesine, head off south to Sirmione and work your way back along the west coast of the lake past superb villas and period properties that take you back to the 1890s - a period of elegant extravagance. Explore the twists and curves heading north past Riva Del Garda into the Trentino Region to explore some great biking roads leading up to the ski resort of Madonna di Campiglio. Venice is but a short ride away and it would be a shame not to spend a day in romantic Verona the setting for Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet. Book a night at the Opera in the atmospheric surroundings of the Roman Amphitheatre at Verona - now that really is a once in a lifetime experience.

The Dolomites... the stunning granite peaks, fantastic roads, Italian hospitality, food, wine, picturesque mountain villages and ski resorts.... It really is picture postcard scenery - Italy with a Tirolean feel to it! Combine that with our friendly, long-standing hotel partner who is used to catering for motorcycling guests and you have the ideal combination for a brilliant Italian tour.

We will base ourselves for three nights in the very heart of the Dolomites, surrounded by some of the most enchanting peaks of this mountain range. The village has a range of bars, restaurants and shops. Our three star hotel is very motorcycle-friendly, with garage parking (you may wish to use the bike jet wash or drying room facilities) and is in a wonderful position beneath the famous Gruppo Sella mountain range. Breakfast is an ample buffet and for dinner it's a four course menu plus a salad buffet. There's a sauna and whirlpool for you at the end of a long day and massage facilities are available for a fee. Popular with local motorcyclists, you will enjoy a beer on the terrace overlooking the town while discussing the merits of the various motorcycle marques that you will see during the day. Whatever YOU ride, rest assured you will feel completely at home on the glorious roads in the immediate vicinity of our Hotel. From this base you can ride the Great Dolomite Road all the way to Cortina d’Ampezzo or take your choice of some fabulous passes and rides out directly accessible from the hotel. There are planned rides out into the Dolomites - a vast mountainous terrain offering dramatic landscapes of lowland valleys, secluded villages and precipitous rock faces - and the odd twisty road. The scenery really has to be seen to be believed...

We will allow ourselves 3 days for the return journey, taking time to enjoy the Timmelsjoch pass and a ride through Austria to an overnight stop near the German border. From here, we will meander west along the southern border of Germany to an overnight stop near to the Ballons des Vosges Regional Nature Park. In the morning we will tackle the Route des Cretes before taking a cross country route to our last overnight stop near Épernay and a leisurely ride to the ferry on the last day.

If you like riding your bike and want to travel to an interesting destination with fantastic scenery then this is the tour for you. Couples welcome - there really is something for everyone on this tour!
