1.) Italy—Tuscany: http://www.pinterest.com/vbtvacations/tuscany/
VBT offers 3 biking vacations and 1 walking vacation to this amazing region of Italy. The exquisite beauty of Tuscany unfolds before you as we cycle along breathtakingly scenic routes – including one of the most beautiful wine roads in Italy on our Tuscan Coast vacation. Or discover a hidden pocket of Tuscany’s unspoiled Maremma region on our Tuscany by the Sea vacation. Further inland, our Tuscan Hill Towns By Bike vacation explores two “must-see” medieval masterpieces– San Gimignano and Siena —that await you on this delightful cycling adventure. If a lovely walk is more your speed, enjoy strolling through fertile meadows awash with vibrant sunflowers and picturesque hilltop villages steeped in Renaissance history on our Italy: The Quiet Pathways of Tuscany walking vacation.
2.) Croatia: The Dalmatian Islands:
Long revered for its fascinating history, stunning scenery and mild climate, Croatia awaits your discovery. From your base on two picturesque Adriatic islands—including Hvar, acclaimed as one of the world’s most beautiful isles in the world by Conde Nast Traveler magazine—you’ll explore medieval villages, see lingering Venetian influences in quaint fishing towns, swim in pristine waters and enjoy spectacular coastal bike routes. You’ll also enjoy exclusive cultural excursions like a visit to one of the world’s last remaining stonecutting schools, dinner in a family home and a cooking lesson with dinner and a tasting of Croatian wines that ensure you’ll experience, not only Croatia’s beauty, but also its soul.
3.) Costa Rica:
VBT has both a biking and a walking vacation in beautiful Costa Rica where you’ll explore one of the greenest countries on earth, both in vegetation and in philosophy. Soar through the rainforest on a thrilling zip line and bike through the countryside, keep the adventure going and cycle near the base of Arenal Volcano, and let your thoughts wander as we drift with the current on a river safari. We’ll also sample the bounty of these lush lands – local coffee and delicious produce. And at day’s end, we’ll rest and relax in deluxe 4- and 5-star accommodations, indulging in our luxurious resorts’ spas and hot springs. It’s the ultimate Pura Vida!
Whether discovering Ireland by bike or foot, you’ll be sure to have the time of your life. Immerse yourself in breathtaking landscapes, ancient roots and the colorful people of Ireland. Along the way, you’ll stay in charming, family-run inns and enjoy special events, such as a chat with a historian and an authentic pub lunch that will put you in touch with the warm-hearted locals who have the gift of making everyone’s eyes smile.
5.) Italy—The Amalfi Coast & Capri:
Few places can rival the dramatic beauty of the Amalfi Coast, an enchanting region where soaring, rugged mountains plunge suddenly to meet the sparkling azure waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Join us as we walk ancient footpaths through terraced hillsides redolent with lemon trees, explore the fascinating ruins of Pompeii, and stroll through winding cobblestone streets on the famed isle of Capri. We’ll also enjoy some local culture, learning time-honored techniques for mozzarella-braiding and paper-making, and savoring fresh, flavorful cuisine at family-run trattorias. Delight in the sublime scenery of southern Italy on VBT’s most popular walking vacation.
