Mediterranean Island Hop

08.11.2017

DATES: 12TH – 19TH OCTOBER

DISTANCE: 900 MILES

We avoid the laborious and often wet ride south from the UK by shipping your bikes and luggage to Tuscany the week before our tour. We fly down to Pisa a few days later, collect our bikes , and ride to the ferry port of Livorno, only one hour away from the shipping depot near Florence.

The overnight ferry sails from Livorno on the Italian mainland to Sardinia and the next morning we awake in Olbia. Our ride today takes us through the mountainous centre of Sardinia to our overnight stop in a beach resort called Villasimius on the south western tip of the island

The next morning we ride via Cagliari and Oristano enroute to our next overnight halt in historic town of Alghero.

Passing through the majestic Tempio Pausania mountain range today we ride north east to our next overnight destination, the coastal town of Porto Cervo on the Costa Smeralda (Emerald Coast).

The following morning we board the ferry for the short 30 minute crossing from Santa Teresa Gallura to Bonifacio at the southernmost tip of Corsica. We spend the next two days in Corsica, staying at one hotel in a remote mountain location and the second in Bastia, from where we will catch our ferry back to Livorno on the morning of the sixth day.

Returning to the Italian mainland in the afternoon we ride directly to our hotel for the last night in Italy. The bikes and luggage are then dropped off at the depot and we are collected by our coach for the journey back to the airport and the flight home.
