There are, perhaps, very few activities that are more adventurous, interesting and wholesome than exploring another country on a bike! Although each country in Europe offers fantastic environments for cycling breaks, there are a few – like these three great destinations – that can be compared to any of the best cycling destinations in the world…
With a bike, helmet and a local guide provided to you, discovering the history behind Rome is just a pedal away. If you choose to have a local guide accompany you on the cycle tour, you don’t have to keep guessing the story behind each monument. Moreover, you can discover Rome’s ancient structures; understand that every nook and cranny of Rome is brimming with an unexpected surprise. Explore the various churches and fountains, and cycle through Rome’s ancient secret passageways, and toast yourself to a gelato. When on a cycle tour around Rome, be sure not to miss the Colle Oppio garden, the Venezia Square, the Pantheon, the Santa Maria Sopra Minerva, the Trevi Fountain, the Colosseum, the Theatre of Marcelllus, and the Piazza Navona.
Explore the romantic landscape and the enchanting elegance of Andalucía in Spain on a cycle and take home beautiful memories. Start your cycle tour – independent or guided – from the beautiful Seville. Explore its mosque- cathedral of Mezquita, rustic city of Cordoba, dip into the history of the place before heading to Andalucía. You just need to bring your own helmet (even though you can choose to get one from the guide), and a lot of adrenaline to the tour. Take the White Village tour and enjoy cycling on dirt tracks and countryside roads, see the rivers and lakes pass by, and venture into the lush forests before taking a break at the Via Verde. From independent exploration to self-guided tours, leisure cycling tours to family cycling holidays, mountain biking to winter training camps, exploring Andalucía on two wheels is everything a cycle tour enthusiast would ask for.
