Other Need-to-Know Information about Italy

Italy is a country that obviously offers a wealth of tourism, sightseeing, and vacation experiences. A motorcycle tour with Planet Ride should be at the top of your list! The geography is especially diverse and makes for excellent riding wherever you go. If adventure is what you want, consider the mountain passes and hairpin turns in the far north of the country amid the Dolomites and the Alps. If the beach is where you want to cruise, Italy has extensive coastline along the Adriatic, Mediterranean, and Tyrrhenian Seas. If casual riding through rustic countryside is what you seek, there is the Piedmont region, famous for its wines, the beautiful rolling fields of Tuscany (also famous for its wines), the green hills and farmland of Umbria, the gorgeous glacial lakes of Lombardy, and other wonderful scenery.

You’re likely familiar with the famous cities of Rome, Florence, Genoa, Milan, Naples, Venice, and others. On your motorcycle tours Italy, you can venture into these cities, and you are bound to find art, history, architecture, and other aspects of the rich Italian culture. Beyond the cities, amongst the countryside and small towns, there is Cinque Terre and the Amalfi coast, both beautiful coastal areas, Lake Como and Lake Garda in the north, and much, much more!

Because of that geographical diversity, the climate of the country can vary significantly from one area to another. The inland northern and central regions tend to have hot and humid summers and cold, sometimes harsh, winters. The coastal areas, and much of the south, are more of a Mediterranean climate with rainy winters and hot, dry summers. Regardless of where you travel in the country, late spring through early fall are generally the best times to visit and the best times to ride.

Depending on where you are traveling from, you can arrive in Italy by plane, train, boat, car, and arguably the best method – motorcycle! All of the major cities mentioned above have international airports that are serviced by major international airlines, as well as Italy’s national airline (Alitalia), and several budget European airlines.
