Italy Self-Guided Bike and Hike

Starting from the Eternal City and culminating with Florence of the South, this incredible trip takes you to experience some of the most stunning beauty that this blessed country has to offer, a kaleidoscope of natural and human-made wonders.
From Matera and its troglodyte settlements – a landscape as close to Holy Land as anything European may come to be – to Alberobello and its conical roofed Trulli, an extraordinary example of a humble shelter turned into a worldwide attraction, from the white-washed houses of Ostuni, the glistening city, to the lighthouse of Punta Palascia, the Easternmost point of Europe, a few kilometers far from the Castle of Otranto; from the narrow streets and run-down charm of the Bari’s old center to the baroque churches and flamboyant palaces of Lecce.
