Explore the wonders of South Italy by bicycle

Cycling is the ideal way to discover the beauty of Apulia, Sicily, and Basilicata and appreciate the variety of its landscapes and richness of its cultural treasures.

With the sun above you, you ride peacefully through gorgeous landscapes of great diversity. Hills covered in olive groves or vines; small villages, archaeological sites and coastal paths. You climb the sides of volcanoes perfumed with the scent of jasmine and lemon trees.

The electric bicycle, available in all weathers, will greatly benefit those who wish to discover the island without excessive physical effort.

Apulia, known as the heel of the Italian boot, is the perfect playground to explore unique cultural and architectural heritage, spectacular coastline, dreamy beaches, and breathtaking nature. All year round, explore small scenic roads of Italy’s flattest region to discover picturesque villages and beautiful old towns like Lecce, Polignano, Ostuni or Alberobello and its one-of-kind trulli. In addition, treat yourself to the Apulian gastronomy featuring specialties renowned all over Italy, and exceptional wine and olive oil.

Located west of Apulia, Basilicata is blessed with outstanding cultural and natural treasures that will enchant all travellers. Do not miss Matera, a UNESCO-listed city famous for its unique sassi and cave churches. It is a real gem !

With the help of our partner, located in Sicily, we’ll be happy to guide you through your stay, letting you discover the many winding roads leading to breath-taking sites – Mount Etna, turquoise blue coves, fisherman villages or the Baroque beauty of cities such as Palermo and Syracuse.
