A bike tour is a great way to discover an Italian city. Not only do you cover more ground than if you were walking but you have fun in doing it!

This piece has been written for those people who are unsure about cycling tours: what type of bike tour should you do in Italy and what can you expect on a cycling tour.

Self-guided or Guided?
Whilst self-guided bike tours have many advantages from choosing when you set off, who you travel with and the intensity of the cycling they are not suitable for everyone.If you really want to make the most of your Italian bike tour, we strongly recommend a guided bike tour.

Here are some of the advantages of a guided bike tour:

Knowledgable Guides
Whether you are visiting Italy for the first time or the fiftieth time there is always more to learn. All of our guided cycling tours in Italy are led by highly qualified and local guides. Learn the interesting stories, the facts and folklore as well as being able to have questions answered as you ride from site to site.

Increased Awareness
With your local guide leading the way you can relax and be more aware of your surroundings. This is not only safer and less stressful, it also allows you to take in more of the sights!

Social
Venice Events require that a minimum of 2 people are booked onto a bike tour. This means whether you are a solo traveller or a group you are likely to meet likeminded travellers to share the experience with.

Interesting Itineraries
Often, tour guides will have agreements with establishments in regards to pricing. This means you get more for value and can do more. For example the Amarone Wine Bike Tour out of Verona includes a wine tasting session led by an expert wine sommelier.

Venice Events Bike Tours
We offer a number of guided bike tours, mostly focused on learning more about a particular city in Italy.

Our most popular guided bike tours are the Verona Bike Tour and the Amarone Wine Bike Tour.

Everything is taken care of including helmets and a rain coat (if necessary) which means all you have to do is follow and listen to you english speaking guide!

The last tip we will give you is be sure to book these tours early to avoid disappointment as they are extremely popular from May all the way through to November.
