Italy is one of our favorite destinations. From its soaring peaks in the north, to the gentle rolling countryside of Tuscany, the glittering beaches along the coast, and the renowned wine and food, we never get tired of returning to this iconic destination. We’re also pretty fond of our home country and the many wonders that exist right in our own backyard.

If you love Italy and want to explore closer to home this year, we’ve got the perfect adventure for you! Whether you’re a fan of Italy’s breathtaking mountains, enchanting coast, or world-class wine, we know where to find a similar experience right here in the USA. Check out some of our favorites below, or learn more about our bike tours in the USA.

Wine and Fine Food

Is wine the highlight of any adventure you take? If you love exploring Italy’s wine regions, you’ll also enjoy our California: Wine Country & the Pacific Coast adventure. This tour offers everything you’d want in a wine country bike tour: ocean breezes, redwood trees, Spanish Colonial towns—and, of course, wine!


Coastal Beauty

Fans of the magical Italian coast will also be enthralled by our South Carolina & Georgia: Charleston to Savannah tour. Cycle by the pastel-hued houses of Charleston, marveling at views of sailboats and historic Fort Sumter. Coastal islands, historic architecture, freshly caught seafood, and Southern charm await.


Stunning Mountain Views

If you love the soaring peaks and pristine lakes of the Dolomites, you’ll also love our Wyoming: Grand Teton & Yellowstone National Parks adventure. With the snow-covered Teton Range in the distance, you’ll pedal on bike paths and roads past geothermal pools, pristine lakes, stunning waterfalls, and grazing animals.




Rolling Countryside

The rolling hills and lush countryside of Tuscany are not unlike our beautiful home state of Vermont, if you don’t mind us saying so! Enjoy our Vermont: Middlebury & Idyllic Countryside tour during late summer or early fall to feel like you’re under the Tuscan sun as you cycle along gentle country lanes.
