Benvenuti!

Abruzzo is one of the most unique regions of Italy in that it remains unspoiled both in its stunning mountainous landscapes and its culture; traveling here is like taking a trip back in time. Encompassing three national parks and multiple coastal regions, this corner of Italy has it all for the outdoor enthusiast.

On this trip, you will ride a route that has become popularized over the years as a bucket list trip for bike packers traveling from around the world to experience this beautiful region in a unique way.

You will complete the ride in four days with full support. This trip features a rugged and beautiful historical route, Medieval hilltop towns, tall mountain passes, castles, wildlife, and amazing food and drink to replenish you for the next day's adventure!

On the final night, as a cherry on top, you will return to Rome, where you will enjoy the eternal city, experience its vast history, and celebrate the feat you just accomplished!
