9 Days Amalfi Coast and Southern Italy Spring Guided Motorcycle Tour

Rome, Italy

Exciting Italy Motorcycle Tour

Riding on two wheels through the chic Mediterranean towns of Amalfi, Positano, and Ravello is unforgettable. The visions of historical Matera and the witnessing the devastation of Pompei are without words. The exciting and picturesque coastal road of the Gargano Promontory in Puglia makes this trip almost surreal. Ride the Italian “coast to coast” from Abruzzo to Lazio through the dramatic back-roads of the Abruzzese Pennines, which is one of the gems of the trip! And once the sun has set, pulling off your boots and relaxing in a four-star hotel, eating great food, enjoying superb wine, and exploring what the local night-life has to offer.

Accommodation

When you are in Rome you will be staying in four-star hotels, and when you are on the road, wind down in three or four-star family-run hotels which offer comfort, friendliness, and a welcoming atmosphere: something which the big hotels just don’t have. Hear The Road Motorcycle Tours' aim is to give you an intense flavor of Italy, the real Italy.

Program

Day 1: Welcome to Rome! (late morning / early afternoon arrival is recommended)

A private car will transfer you from the airport to the hotel where you will find your Hear The Road host Enrico, waiting to give you a warm Italian welcome. After you’ve put your luggage in the room and take a good refreshing shower, you'll convene in the bar of the hotel for a "meet and greet" with your tour colleagues. Then you are ready to go to pick up the bikes and bring them to the hotel garage.

Back to the hotel, Enrico gives you a general briefing of the tour and will be very glad to answer to all your questions. Finally, you are ready to go all together to taste the "welcome dinner", where you’ll learn more about what to expect for the next exciting week. Overnight is in Rome.

  • Highlights: meet your motorcycle, meet your guide, meet your fellow riders.

Day 2: Rome to Sperlonga (248 kilometers / 154 miles)

It’s 09.00 a.m. on Sunday morning, the town is still sleeping. This is the perfect time to leave Rome without having to deal with its traffic. You will leave Roma heading east towards Subiaco where you stop to visit the Abbey of Saint Benedict. Back on the bikes, you ride the narrow scenic road that brings us to Jenne (passing through many natural tunnels dug into the mountain!), and then to Guarcino, where you stop for your first lunch on the road.

Then, with your batteries re-charged, you are ready for a great plunge towards the Mediterranean Sea. You reach Sperlonga just in time to admire the sun setting in the sea while you drink your Italian aperitif to celebrate your first great day on the challenging roads of Southern Italy. Overnight in Sperlonga.

  • Highlights: Abbey of Saint Benedict, Ciocaria, Sperlonga.

Day 3: Sperlonga to Ravello (167 kilometers / 104 miles)

You will leave Sperlonga heading South towards Pompei where you stop to visit this famous archaeological site. Pompei is one of the most significant proofs of Roman civilization, and, like an open book, provides outstanding information on the art, customs, trades and everyday life of the past. Back on the bikes, you head south again to reach the Costiera Amalfitana. Your overnight is in beautiful Ravello.

  • Highlights: Visit of Pompei.

Day 4: Amalfi Coast Loop (122 kilometers / 76 miles)

Today you fall in love with the colors and the fragrances of the Costiera Amalfitana. A day of pure pleasure: riding on the dramatic coastline roads, having lunch on a beautiful terrace facing the sea at Marina di Cantone, shopping in the beautiful city of Positano, drinking an aperitif while sitting at the table of a characteristic bar, waiting for the sun to set into the sea. There is also time to visit the factory of the pasta in Gragnano, where they still make pasta following old traditions. Overnight again in Ravello.

  • Highlights: Factory of pasta in Gragnano, Marina di Cantone, Amalfi Coast, Positano, Amalfi.

Day 5: Ravello to Matera (282 kilometers / 175 miles)

You will leave Ravello, heading south for the last unforgettable ride on the Costiera Amalfitana that brings you to Vietri Sul Mare. Time for a coffee and for the last picture of the coast, and then you are ready to challenge the winding roads of the Parco Nazionale del Cilento. You enter Basilicata and a special lunch is waiting for you!

You will stop at Latteria Salvia (Diary Salvia) for a cheese tasting. This is really an uncommon food experience! You will eat all kinds of cheese that the Salvia family continues to produce using production methods of the old pastoral tradition.

Back on the motorcycles, you will join the spectacular Strada Statale Appia, which was built by the Romans to arrive at Brindisi, the port from where merchant ships departed to reach Magna Grecia. Finally, you reach Matera, home of the most outstanding, intact example of a Troglodyte (cave dweller) settlement in the Mediterranean region, perfectly adapted to its terrain and ecosystem. Your overnight is in Matera.

  • Highlights: Amalfi Coast, Cilento National Park, Cheese Tasting, Matera.

Day 6: Free day in Matera

There is so much to see and do in Matera, so Hear The Road Motorcycle Tour Italy chose this as your free day, where you can visit the town on your own. There are lots of historic buildings to visit as well as some wonderful shopping, Italian style! For those who prefer to ride, they’ve organized an afternoon ride led by Enrico that leaves from and returns to the hotel. Overnight is again in Matera.

  • Highlights: Visit of Matera

Day 7: Matera to Termoli (373 kilometers / 232 miles)

Today is the last day on the coastline roads of Southern Italy, so it has to be a great day! Before reaching the coast, you will visit the magnificent Castel del Monte, that was built directly on a rocky bank, in some places cropping out, and is famous for its octagonal shape. Finally, you ride the stunning roads of the Gargano Promontory, with its dramatic cliffs that plunge into the Adriatic Sea. On the way, you pass through the villages of Vieste and Rodi Garganico. Your overnight is in Termoli.

  • Highlights: Castel del Monte, Gargano Promontory, Vieste.

Day 8: Termoli to Roma (369 kilometers / 229 miles)

You will leave Termoli heading west towards Rome. This is the "Italian coast to coast" from East to West, which brings you through three spectacular regions: Molise, Abruzzo, and Lazio.

You will ride along beautiful mountain roads until you reach the village of Anversa Degli Abruzzi. It is here that we join the highway that brings you back to Roma. After returning the bikes, you arrive back at the hotel in time to freshen up before the final fabulous dinner together celebrating this wonderful Italian motorcycle experience.

  • Highlights: Scanno, Abruzzo National Park, Farewell Dinner.

Day 9: Departure day

Time to say, "arrivederci" to your new friends, collect the souvenirs and cameras and pack the bags. After breakfast, you will be transferred to the airport.

Location

This tour will bring you to some of the most fascinating places in Italy, such as Rome, Sperlonga, Amalfi Coast, Matera, and Termoli.

The town of Matera

Matera counts about 55.000 inhabitants, is located 400 meters above sea level and is 45 kilometers from the seaside. Much appreciated and renowned for its Sassi districts, the town also boasts other charming and beautiful buildings. You can visit the Dome, built in the 13th century, in Romanesque style, standing impressive on the Civita Hill.

The Sassi

The Sassi district is the ancient heart of the city of Matera. The Sassi surround the Civita and constitute a city unto itself, completely carved out of the face of the calcareous rock - what is known as tufo stone. The Sassi district is a system made of dwellings carved out of the steep slopes of a deep valley with surprising and unusual features called the "Gravina". Elegant and multi-faceted buildings are interspersed with underground mazes and cave labyrinths, forming one single stunning landscape.
