Easy cycling holidays: we simply believe that cycling makes for a great holiday, and that a rewarding break requires a thirst for discovery, a pinch of initiative and the right dose of comfort. Bikes let you travel at an easy pace, whether along cycling tracks or quiet roads, keeping you in touch with nature and allowing you to appreciate the people you come across as you cycle through the villages, and appreciate their way of life.
New 2015!
Through our research and client feedback, we have come up with what we believe is the ideal two-wheeler for the Girolibero cyclist: a unisex low-entry citybike, with a riding position that is upright, comfortable and relaxed.

Racing bike tours in some of the most beautiful regions in Italy, where in addition to views and legendary ascents you can also enjoy unforgettable food and wine and visit innumerable cities of art along the way.

Our floating hotels will follow you along the various stages of the cycling tour, and welcome you back on board in the afternoon, for a hearty dinner. Take a virtual tour inside Ave Maria boat!
