Italy is one of the most desired countries to visit in the world, and with good reason. The stunning beauty, the delectable cuisine, the rich history, the art and architecture, and the friendly people all make it a traveler’s dream destination. In 2015, VBT is offering 12 biking and walking vacations throughout the country from Tuscany to Puglia to Sicily to the Dolomites and Veneto. We could tell you how great these tours are until we’re blue in the face but really, the best way to hear about a VBT experience is from our travelers. Check out some recent reviews from some of our most popular Italian tours…

Great experience!  by Carolann from Virginia
Tuscany by the Sea (Rated 4.9 out of 5 by VBT travelers)
TB Review

“Just a great experience. The leaders were fantastic -- warm, funny and knowledgeable. The daily options provided allowed bikers of all levels to really enjoy and challenge themselves. We had division 1 athletes as well as senior citizens and expectations were met. Local people were charming, the countryside was breathtaking, the food was delicious, the accommodations were always attractive and varied. The other activities beyond biking were interesting and provided a welcome change of pace. I can't see how we could not have done this vacation on our own at the price we paid. Great value!”

The picturesque Italian Alps provide the perfect setting for a biking vacation by Fran from Maryland
Italy: Cycling the Dolomite Valleys (Rated 4.9 out of 5 by VBT travelers)

“Cycling through the Dolomites was an experience beyond description both in words and in photos. Our tour guides, Luca and Elena were so delightful and accommodating. Their knowledge and experience enhanced an already great trip. The accommodations and meals were first class. The bike routes took us through the mountain valleys and out in the countryside far from the cities. There were Kodak moments at every turn in the path. We were free to linger as long as we wished to take it all in. Though the trip was only two weeks, the memories will last a lifetime.”

Absolutely a great tour by Larry and Anna from Colorado
The Amalfi Coast & Capri (Rated 5 out of 5 by VBT travelers)
AW Review

“We have traveled to Europe many times, but always did it on our own with a car rental, etc. This was our first tour. We absolutely loved it! No hassle, no worries, great hotels, great food, great guides, no transportation issues to deal with, great scenery, well informed and friendly guides.”

A Magical Experience! by Ann from New Hampshire
The Tuscan Coast (Rated 4.9 out of 5 by VBT travelers)
TC Review

“From the breathtaking pre trip in Florence, to staying at top of the line hotels, to savoring gourmet meals and the best wines, to cycling past sunflower fields, olive groves, and vineyards, to traveling with and meeting the most wonderful people...this was indeed the most magical experience of a life time!”

A perfect way to explore a wonderful part of Italy, and the world by Stefano from California
Italy: The Quiet Pathways of Tuscany (Rated 5 out of 5 by VBT travelers)
TW review

“My wife and I, along with two friends of ours, spent two weeks we will never forget on this VBT tour. It exceeded all our expectations. Our guides for the week in Tuscany were fantastic. They were knowledgeable and friendly, with great senses of humor. One was a winemaker, the other a geologist! Perfect for Tuscany. One of the highlights for me was exploring the smaller villages and towns that you don't get to on other tours. The walking was easy to moderate, the scenery was outstanding, the food was wonderful, the wine sublime, the accommodations were cozy, and the camaraderie enjoyable. Manga! Salute! We can't wait to go back again.”
