Italy Bike Tours

Explore Italy on the Best Guided Cycling Tours

Since 1972 we’ve learned that the best way to discover the magic of Italy is by taking a bike tour. Culture, food, rural landscapes and people come to life in the countryside when you slow down and observe the details from the seat of a bike. ExperiencePlus! has operated bike tours in Italy longer than any other bicycle tour company and we have the guides, routes and favorite hidden corners in each region to show for it. ExperiencePlus! has an array of bicycle tours in Italy that are sure to satisfy anyone’s quest for the perfect cycling destination. On our bicycle tours in Italy you will pedal to extraordinary art cities such as Venice, Florence, Lucca and Pisa. Add to this the marvelous rural landscapes of Veneto, Emilia-Romagna, Chianti and Maremma areas of Tuscany, and you have the best of Italy at your fingertips. End every day with a delicious meal of local food specialties and you’ll understand why Italy is such a popular bicycling destination. Oh yes, did I mention the “gelato?” And the wonderful fruits and vegetables for your daily picnics on the road, or the homemade pasta for dinner?

Many of our trips have a longer and shorter version so if something looks great but you don’t have the time or you want to stay longer let us know!

New in 2024: we are excited to announce a new line up of self-guided cycling tours in Italy. These tours are perfect for adventure-loving travelers who want to pick their own departure date and don’t need van support or tour leaders en route. Browse our new line up below by selecting Self-guided under the tour style. We also marked these self-guided tour finder photos with a yellow “New: Self-guided” banner!
