Cycling Holidays in Italy

  • Explore famous cities, lovely countryside and historical sites
  • Boat & Bike cycling holidays along famous waterways
  • Island-based cycling holidays in Sicily and Sardinia
  • Wide selection of Italy cycling holidays from lakes to beaches

We are really passionate about Italy as a cycling holiday destination and have selected cycling holidays that really showcase the varied nature of the country. For cycling holidays in Italy, Freewheel have the whole country covered, from the Dolomites in the north to cycling holidays in Sicily in the south.

You'll ride around wonderful cities like Venice, Florence and Verona, and also enjoy the remarkable scenery of rural Tuscany, Sicily and Sardinia on your bike. For something a bit different why not try our popular ‘Boat & Bike’ holiday between Venice and Mantova, or follow the Adriatic coast from Venice round to Porec in neaby Croatia? The islands of Sicily and Sardinia offer a great off-season choice for early or late in the year sunshine.

We have selected cycle tours with convenient starting points to make joining your cycling holiday as simple as possible. Many of the cycling holidays in Italy start close to main airports such as Milan, Pisa or Venice for ease.

You then transfer by local transport to the starting point of your cycle tour in Italy. We advise you on how to do this.

All cycling holidays in Italy include at least B&B accommodation, maps, route guide, bike hire and luggage transfers. Optional extras such as half board and E-bikes are available for a surcharge.
