Accommodation

You will be accommodated in high-rating (4*) hotels or private accommodation. Riders can choose to stay in a private room or share a room with another rider.

Moto Tours Europe has based their offer on the concept of holistic and authentic experiences. This means they pay special attention to providing a perfect balance of different experiences included in each of their tours: high-quality motorcycles and the best scenic roads are paired with the best of the local cuisine and the exclusive and unique accommodation.

The regions that you ride through were carefully selected to offer not only natural beauty and pleasant roads, but also to enable you to experience the related social, cultural, and traditional aspects of the areas they visit.

The true experience of any location cannot be achieved by merely enjoying the view from the comfort of your bike. It is necessary to step down once in a while and immerse yourself in the local culture by tasting the products of the land you have enjoyed watching, and by feeling the comfort of the accommodation style typical for the area. Whenever possible, the meals and accommodation arranged by Moto Tours Europe will reflect this philosophy.

Location

This motorcycle tour covers the highlights of Italy and France's must-see regions including Venice, Florence, Siena, Pisa, Cinque Terre, Bonifacio, Bastia, coastal ride of Corsica and Sardinia, vineyards of Tuscany.

Siena

Siena is likely Italy's loveliest medieval city. Siena's heart is its central piazza known as Il Campo, known worldwide for the famous Palio run here, a horse race run around the piazza two times every summer.

Movie audiences worldwide can see Siena and the Palio in the James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace. Siena was an important center of painting, sculpture, and architecture, and has several notable works dating from the early Italian Renaissance.

Bonifacio

Bonifacio is on the southern coast of Corsica, separated from the Italian island of Sardinia by the 11-kilometer-long Strait of Bonifacio, which is named after the town. The two islands were once joined, but volcanic activity tore them apart, leaving huge shards of granite rock in the turquoise waters. The seafloor here is now dotted with wrecks of pirate ships and ancient vessels which crashed against the many crags, and has become a mecca for divers.

There are few towns that can boast such a dramatic, seemingly precarious position as Bonifacio! Teetering perilously atop an eroding limestone promontory that juts out into the sea, east to west, for around1.5 kilometers, it has to be seen to be believed.
