Biking Tours in Italy

There are hundreds of bike tour operators. Why choose La Dolce Vita Wine Tours? First, we know Italy. It’s our forte, our turf, our home. Second, we really, really know Italy’s wine and food, since that’s the focus of our other tours. That means our bike tours are several notches above the rest in terms of cozy restaurants, fantastic gourmet wine dinners, carefully considered wine pairings, and private, sit-down tastings.

Our bike tours are private, custom departures for groups of 4 or more. Thus they can be tailored to suit your group’s schedule and interests. Below are two sample itineraries that can serve as a springboard for discussion about your ideal tour. Give us a call! We hope to see you on the road in Italy.

Biking in Barolo and Gavi Wine Country

The place to be for enophiles is also great for cyclists. The Langhe hills (home of Barolo) offer some of the most gorgeous riding in Italy, while Gavi (our backyard) is pure Piedmont off the beaten track. Ride by day, feast by night in this gastronomic mecca, famous for its refined cuisine and regal Barolo wine.

Cycling the Wine Roads of San Gimignano and Chianti Classico

A week of biking nirvana in the ancient heart of Chianti and San Gimignano. See medieval wine villages, the birthplace of Bocaccio, and art masterpieces in Siena. Refuel with classic and nouvelle renditions of Tuscany’s cucina rustica paired with top-flight Chianti, Vernaccia, and Super Tuscans.
