This superb road cycling holiday in France and Italy has become our signature road cycling tour and deservedly so with its miles of great classic riding; it really is a distinctly varied cycling adventure.
Following arrival and an evening of superb Nicoise cuisine in the chic capital of the French Riviera, we ride out of town onto the classic Col d’Eze of Nice. Our first day’s circular route is a popular training ground for pro-riders and on any day of the week you’re likely to encounter some big names.
The following day we set sail for the beautiful island of Corsica. Our early afternoon arrival in Calvi gives us plenty of time for riding and straight away we head down the coast to Porto. During the next two days we will ride some of the island’s most dramatic roads, visiting numerous beautifully rustic and very typical towns and villages along the way.
Our final Corsican ride sees us rising into the chestnut forests of the Castagniccia before descending into Bastia. The following morning we make our crossing to Tuscany, in Italy. In Tuscany we spend two days riding out from our historic walled city base of Lucca. We ride through the dramatic vine clad hills in the north of the region which is home to many top professional cyclists.
Next on the itinerary are the dramatic slopes of Italy’s most enchanting coastline, the Cinque Terra (Five Lands), where, if time allows, we visit each of the five villages which give their name to the area.
For our final day of riding we transfer to the mountain town of Gavi for a grand finale blast through the Piemonte region, home of the legendary Fausto Coppi, before transferring back to Nice for our final celebratory evening.
