Day 9: Milan (departure)

Support vehicle

For six or more motorcycles, Italy on Motorbike supply a support van in charge to carry the participants’ luggage and occasionally those passengers who don’t want to ride on a given day. The luggage van doesn’t follow the group’s route so you must take with you all that you might need for the day and this is what the paniers on the bike are provided for.

You can store in there a camera, some shoes for walking, a sweater, a beach towel and everything that you might need for your visits. During the visits you can use them to store helmets and jackets for more comfort.

Each of the tour starts and ends at the same hotel so you can leave your excess luggage (normally the van carries one suitcase per person) in their luggage room for the entire tour.

Riding your own bike

Participants taking part in a tour with their own vehicle are themselves responsible for its conforming with the law, being sufficiently insured and for its technical condition being faultless.

If non-compliance with such a condition results in the service provision being disturbed, then the traveler is obliged to reimburse Italy on Motorbike for any loss that the situation may cause, cost that may incur and damages in case other participants should complain and our corporate image should be harmed.

The traveler shall obviously also bear any additional costs arising to fix the problem (for instance for vehicle recovery, vehicle safekeeping, elimination of technical defects, etc.).

Required documents

Every participant must have a valid identity document. A tourist visa may be requested, depending on your country of origin. Please inquire at the Italian embassy of your state for the necessary documents.

In addition the rider must have a valid driver’s license suitable for the ridden motorbike. Italy on Motorbike recommends all non-EU citizens to procure an international driver’s license.

Location

When it comes to landscapes, Italy has it all, with its magnificent forests and beautiful coastal panoramas, its vineyards and medieval villages, its snow-capped peaks and sunny islands. So whatever scenery you like, we’ve got it: cities, open country, seas, lakes, hills, and magnificent mountains.

A country blessed by the gods since the dawn of time, whose boundless natural beauty has inspired artists and entire peoples to create awesome constructions and artworks in every period and place. The cradle of the western civilization, Italy has a unique historical, cultural and artistic heritage broad enough to satisfy devotees of all styles and eras, from the most ancient and mysterious, like the nuragic civilization in Sardinia right up to Milan’s avant-garde artist nightlife, just a few kilometers from the Alps and the northern lakes.

Italy on Motorbike will take you through twists and turns in the heart of a natural world of myriad colors among archaeological sites, churches, and castles, through olive groves and pastures, along jagged shorelines and beautiful beaches, and, to bookend the day, savor as well the sunrise and sunset over the sea horizon.

Food

Italy on Motorbike believes that food tells a lot about a place and its population so that one cannot get to know and understand Italy if he / she doesn’t know and understand the Italian cuisine. They also believe that eating well is an important factor of a successful holiday, especially if the holiday is in Italy, whose cooking is one of the most famous, delicious and beloved in the world.

This is why Italy on Motorbike offers a clever half-board formula that comprises one complete main meal of excellent Italian cuisine per day in a typical restaurant selected for its remarkable traditional cuisine.

Since Italy on Motorbike has personally selected first class hotels that often feature quality cuisine, sometimes the included dinner will be properly at the hotel. But they know that half-board food is usually not representative of the immense culinary talent of Italy while the discovery of Italian food and wine is a fundamental characteristic of all the tours .

For this reason you will have the opportunity on one hand of having some deserving typical dishes in hand-picked restaurants for delicious specialties, and on the other hand of sampling the local gastronomy on your own, having some dinners in restaurants that you choose, eating the dishes that you choose, with the people that you choose.

As regards to not included lunches, a pause is scheduled every day in a bar or cafeteria - some nice, inviting places - where to have a sandwich, a salad or some fast food / warm dishes; and at least two shorter breaks for a cup of coffee, an ice-cream or else will be made along the day.

The following meals are included:

  • Breakfast
  • Dinner

  • Regular (typically includes meat and fish)
