FAQs on Italy Cycling Tours

Is Italy good for cycling?

Owing to the meandering coastal paths, rolling hills and ancient villages that make up the breath-taking scenery, Italy is a fantastic country for cycling. All our cycling holidays in Italy are designed to bring you closer to the heart of the country and lead you through the most dramatic landscapes. As well as being able to cover more ground by bike, cycling in Italy gives you the opportunity to stop off at fascinating sites that you might otherwise miss.

What are the best cycling tours in Italy for families?

While much of Italy would impress families wanting to delve into the best bits of the country, the Puglia region is undeniably a great choice for both adults and children. Carefully planned routes that wind among pretty fishing hamlets, sun-drenched beaches and rural farms provide a wonderful mix of experiences that ensure all age groups are catered for.

If you’re looking for a self-guided, family cycling tour, Italy is the perfect place to go. You’ll follow quieter routes that avoid busy roads and you’re able to ride at your own pace, allowing you plenty of time for beach days along the way.

This was my third cycling trip with Exodus (April 2022). As always, it is a great way to experience a country. The sight, the smells, the noises. You can’t beat it. Jordan is a must see. The cycling itself is not challenging. The rides are quite short and a couple of steep hills but that is it. Unfortunately, I can’t recommend the tour because of the guide. Who has ever heard of a tour leader not cycling!?!?! His rules for cycling (everyone must be single file – always, you can’t stop for photos, you must cycle at the same pace and with minimal distance between each cyclist) was frustrating and at times dangerous. People have their own pace and to cycle out of this especially up and down hills can be downright dangerous. It was a shame because the group were fun and the itinerary was interesting.

Michelle Zuther Petra & Wadi Rum by Bike

An excellent trip with a good range of people on it and something in there for everyone. It was interesting, had sufficient cycling, good food, a good team and we all enjoyed it and had fun.

Carol Birch Cycle Nicaragua, Costa Rica & Panama

This trip exceeded our expectations on lots of levels. The scenery when cycling is unbelievably spectacular (the cycling is not for wimps as lots of climbing!). It is not a luxury trip but accommodation is comfortable and allows you to access such beautiful places. We had a great group, hard cycling mixed with activities such as swimming at waterfalls, short hikes, historical sites with lots of information along the way from our 2 guides Adonia and Evans who had great local knowledge. 2 days at Kruger were incredible, so much wildlife at such close quarters including Elephants, Giraffes, Lions, Zebras, Water buffalo, Hyenas, Impala and beautiful birds. We seemed to pack so much in it’s hard to remember all that we did. The weather was mixed, with blazing sunshine, torrential rain, some cold evenings as at altitude and hailstones the size of walnuts but all added to the experience of adventure (pack for all seasons!)
