Italy

Cycling in Italy can offer everybody what they like: mountain landscapes in the Alpine valleys; surprising roads through Appennine pastures; flat rice fields along the Po river; an endless series of beaches and rocky shores along the seaside; the famous art towns, with their historical and architectural heritage; not to mention countless archeological sites and beautiful ancient villages atop hills and mountains.

National Coordination Centre

Federazione Italiana Amici della Bicicletta

The Italian National EuroVelo Coordinator's site provides a wealth of information about cycling in Italy. Further information on cycle tourism is provided on their 'Bicitalia' website. Italian only.

Cycle Routes

Italian roads are of medium/high quality but it is sometimes difficult to find cycle tracks and/or low traffic routes.

Cycle friendly services

There is a national network of bicycle-friendly facilities (similar to the German Bett+Bike), called Albergabici. Their website offers accommodation tailored to your personal style of travel.

Printed material

Dedicated cycling maps are rare (particularly in languages other than Italian) but a pretty good covering of minor roads in the whole country is offered by the 1:200.000 scale maps of the Touring Club Italiano. Free maps are however available everywhere at tourist bureaus.
