Italy

Which Italian cuisine best represents one of our cycling holidays in Italy? Pizza or Gelato, perhaps? Or what about pasta and its accompanying sauce. Cooked authentically, it’s one of the most genuine ways to experience regional differences in cuisine wherever you are in Italy.

It’s the same for your Oro Tours cycling holiday in Italy. Whether you’re discovering the history and spectacular scenery of the South Tyrol, the timeless appeal of the rugged Dolomites, or navigating the wine-growing Valpolicella region en route to Verona…

Just like the taste sensations of regional pasta variations, our Italian cycling tours are the travel equivalent of a deep, flavoursome, gastronomic understanding of this vibrant, personality-packed Mediterranean land.

Germano-Italian South Tyrol is Italy’s northernmost province. Dishes such as spicy pasta orecchiette alla pugliese with Schuttelbrot capture the region’s character and complex history perfectly. Like hazy, pleasantly warm summer days in the Alto Adige, this is unpretentious, flavour-packed food. Like a glorious descent between wooded slopes along the banks of boulder-strewn rivers, it perfectly blends exhilaration and reassuring satisfaction. 

For sure, there’s distinct contrast between Lake Garda’s stylish lakefront, and fiery sunsets over the Dolomites’ alpine pinnacles. It’s as distinct as the different pasta dishes you’ll experience from St Valentin auf der Haide to Verona’s Vicola Listone…

Italy highlights

  • Cycle along what is arguably Italy’s most impressive cycleway from Toblach to chic Cortina D’Ampezzo.
  • Overnight in a hotel amidst some of Valpolicella’s finest vineyards (and, of course, try the wine).
  • Satisfy your cravings for Veneto's history, shop on stylish Via Massimo and feast on mouth-watering Gnocchi in Verona, the ‘city of love’.

Few cycling holidays in Italy immerse you so deeply in the landscape and culture of South Tyrol as this. Or show you magnificent views from the Reschenpass, then plunge you into clear alpine lakes before enjoying Lake Garda's near-Mediterranean splendour and Valpolicella's delicious wines…
