Motorcycle tour in Umbria, home to lush river valleys, full-bodied wines and pristine medieval architecture. Ride through serene landscapes and picturesque hilltop towns that look the same in canvasses painted by artists over four hundred years ago. Umbria is still a tranquil jewel, never crowded, frequented by the connoisseurs and pathfinders who always find the best places before the masses even know they exist.

Starting with a Dover/Calais sailing and a stopover en route in France we then have an overnight stay in the Lugano area. You will then arrive for three nights in Perugia, the capital of Umbria. Your air-conditioned renaissance-style modern four star hotel (with a lovely indoor swimming pool) is located in the historic centre, next to the imposing Rocca Paolina Fortress which dominates the town. Wander through a Piazza surrounded by palaces - the most beautiful in all Italy, ride out to Assisi, birthplace of Saint Francis, step back in time and discover for yourself the delightful towns of Gubbio, Todi and Torgiano...

Continue your motorbike tour to stay four nights in the delightful thermal spa town of Montecatini Terme in Tuscany where the Roman baths have been restored to their former splendour. Your hotel is centrally located for all the resort's facilities and has a lovely swimming pool.  Florence, Pisa and Lucca are all nearby and on our suggested ride out you can visit the walled medieval town of San Gimignano with its seven towers and the famous Campo at Siena. Ride to the birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci to see an amazing display of his inventions - from a 15th century push bike to a prototype helicopter.

And while you are in this part of the world why not consider a tour of the Ducati Factory at Bologna! There really is plenty to see and lots to do on this TWELVE DAY tour…

If your oppo does not fancy the journey south why not book a cheap flight to Perugia, Florence or Pisa and meet up in the destination resort?

OR.....  fly out to Florence and hire a bike!  Contact us for more details.
