"We cycle along rivers, stop at the spectacular Grotte di Frasassi, Italy’s largest known caves, and explore Etruscan settlements," said Hefferon. "We wind through fields of poppies, wild broom, and orchids, and enjoy local cuisine you can’t find anywhere else!"

Cycling from the Adriatic Sea to the Tyrrhenian Sea, this cultural coast-to-coast cycling tour of Italy passes through four of the Mediterranean's most beautiful regions: Le Marche, Umbria, Lazio and Tuscany, each known for charming hilltop towns, lush landscapes and unique cuisines.

Ciclismo Classico continually researches, scouts, and upgrades its itineraries. The trips are run by both US- and Italy-based staff, and 26 bilingual guides, who combined have many years of active travel expertise, and experience in personalized customer service.

"We are passionate about the bicycle as a means of learning and exploring a region and a culture, and about making cycling accessible to everyone," said Hefferon. "Our tours are 'itinerary driven' meaning that we first come up with the gorgeous, unique, perfectly flowing Ciclismo tour concept and then spend months developing and scouting all of the special Ciclismo amenities, highlights and special events that make up our unique and magical Ciclismo menu."
