Trip Overview

Combining the best of two of our most popular Italian cycling trips, this itinerary offers the unique challenge of riding right across Italy from the Adriatic to the Tyrrhenian sea. Expect a rewarding point-to-point ride every day through some of Italy’s most picturesque scenery on quiet and unspoilt routes. Starting from the Apullian town of Polignano a Mare, we cross Italy from east to west and venture into the heart of the Baslicata and Campania regions. The itinerary includes time in the iconic UNESCO city of Matera, as well as other jewels like Padula and Castelmezzano, a mountain village perched on the so-called 'Dolomites of the south'. Our journey ends with a fantastic ride along the world-famous Amalfi Coast all the way to Sorrento.

Is This Trip for You?

This trip is classified as Road. Average daily distance: 76km (47 miles) No. of days cycling: 6 

This trip crosses the mountainous areas of Basilicata and Campania. Most days will require a good level of fitness as there will be some sections with sustained climbing, particularly on Days 3, 4 and 7. The difficulty and distances of other rides (Days 2, 5 and 6 ) are similar to those you would find on a Grade 3 trip. The reward for the ascents will be stunning views and an amazing sense of achievement; a worthwhile trade-off! Distances per day vary from 50-97km. Daily rides will start from our accommodation and the terrain and route will be mainly on quiet regional and village asphalt roads. The more remote roads are often not maintained as well as those nearer towns, so on these we may encounter a few pot holes and less than perfect surfaces. The support vehicle will follow the group for the vast majority of the time, so you can choose whether to ride all of the climbs on the trip (with limited seats, for only 2 or 3 people). There will be sections of very busy roads along the Amalfi coast during the last ride whilst the rest of the trip covers mostly quiet routes in rural regions. A good level of fitness is essential for this trip. Activity Level: 5 (Challenging). Please note that e-bikes are available to hire for a supplement.

Please see the introductory pages of the cycling brochure or our website for more important information on classification and grading. If you have any queries about the difficulty of the trip please do not hesitate to call us.

Following a review of all our trips we have categorised this trip as generally not suitable for persons of reduced mobility. However if you are a regular traveller on such trips, please contact customer services to discuss the trip and your personal condition.

Group

The group will generally be between 6 and 16 people. There will be a local cycling leader and an assistant leader driving the support vehicle.

Land Only Itinerary

  • Day 1

    Start in the picturesque coastal town of Polignano a Mare.

    Start in the picturesque town of Polignano a Mare. Depending on the group arrival, there might be time for a relaxing stroll through the town's narrow alleys and along the sea shore. We strongly recommend arriving a day or two early to visit some of the other region's jewels including the UNESCO town of Alberobello or Ostuni.

  • Day 2

    Ride through fields and ancient olive groves to the amazing UNESCO city of Matera.

    Today we start cycling from the coast and go inland, heading for one of the most fascinating cities of southern Italy, Matera. A first warm-up climb brings us onto a large rolling plateau, where we will be pedalling through fields of fennel and ancient olive groves. We pass several nice small Apullian villages along the route, where we stop to regroup, take a coffee or simply for a rest. As we cross into the region of Basilicata for the last part of the route, we cycle through open fields and partly along the Appia Antica, the ancient Roman Road. We should reach the UNESCO listed town of Matera in the afternoon with some time for a relaxing stroll in the historic ‘Sassi’ district and for an Italian 'aperitivo' in one of the beautiful squares. You are free to choose from the wide selection of restaurants and pizzerias for your evening meal however the leader may suggest a group meal for those interested. 

    Meals included:
    Breakfast
    Distance covered: 85 km / 52 miles
    Total ascent (m):
    950
  • Day 3

    Challenging ride into the heart of Baslicata to the secret jewel of Castelmezzano, a village perched on top of the so called Dolomites of the South.

    Today will be our longest ride but the destination will be more than worth the effort! We start with an easy downhill section through the fields, towards the Lake of St. Giuliano. We then follow an old road along a ridge, encountering a number of beautiful historic villages, like Tricarico, an old Byzantine capital and Grassano, before arriving in sight of the stunning Lucan Dolomites as known as the 'Dolomites of the South'. We make a great downhill ride just before having to gather some strength for the challenging but rewarding steep climb up to the beautiful village of Castelmezzano, clinged to the mountains' sandstone rocks. The support vehicle will be availble for those who prefer to skip this last ascent. Castelmezzano, rated as one of the prettiest villages in Italy, is very remote and set in a breathtaking location with stunning mountain views - a perfect quiet retreat after today's long ride. A short walk through the village and up to the Norman steps is a must, before we enjoy a delicious hoemade meal at our hotel's restaurant. Overnight in Castelmezzano.

    Meals included:
    Breakfast,
    Dinner
    Distance covered: 97 km / 60 miles
    Total ascent (m):
    1900
  • Day 4

    Cross the border into Campania by bike and reach Montesano

    Today we are heading west into the Campania region. In the morning we cross the National Park of the Basilicata Apennines, a sparsely populated wilderness area featuring stunning mountain scenery and pleasant villages where time seems to have stood still. Towards the end of the afternoon, after a last challenging climb, we’ll reach the top of the ridge between Basilicata and the Campania region. From here we will be cycling all the way down into the Vallo di Diano, a fertile highplain with several beautiful medieval towns. We settle in the beautiiful hilltop village of Montesano sulla Marcellana.

    Meals included:
    Breakfast,
    Dinner
    Distance covered: 82 km / 50 miles
    Total ascent (m):
    1500
  • Day 5

    Ride to the lovely village of Corleto Sant'Angelo and spend a night in a family-run agriturismo with pool.

    Today's ride is relatively short, thus allowing time for some sightseeing. We first cycle all the way down to Padula, where we recommend paying a morning visit to the Padula Charterhouse, the largest monastery in Italy and UNESCO heritage site. After the visit we get on our bikes again and cycle into the heart of the Cilento National Park. First we follow a nice, mainly flat, route through the Vallo di Diano and continue with a climb up the beautiful ‘Sentinella’ pass (932m), which winds up high above the plain. The last part of the route is a nice descent into the Cilento National Park, where we settle in homely agriturismo with pool. If we arrive on time there we can have a great lunch, after which we can relax on the grounds or go for a short optional ride to nearby Roscigno, the Pompeii of the 19th century. Tonight we dine on great local specialties prepared with organic produce. 

    Meals included:
    Breakfast,
    Dinner
    Distance covered: 61 km / 37 miles
    Total ascent (m):
    750
  • Day 6

    Cycle all the way to the coastal town of Paestum in Campania; visit the famous Greek temple.

    Today we ride a great route in the shadow of the Alburni Mountains making our way down to the Tyrrhenian Sea. Early in the afternoon we’ll arrive at the fantastic Greek Temples of Paestum. Our hotel is just a few hundred meters from here so we have the time to visit the impressive archaeological site. Alternatively, you could opt to relax at the swimming pool. The sea is only a few minutes away by bike so those who whish can also enjoy a refreshing late afternoon swim. Tonight we’ll eat on the premises of the hotel. 

    Meals included:
    Breakfast,
    Dinner
    Distance covered: 70 km / 43 miles
    Total ascent (m):
    1000
  • Day 7

    Train ride to Salerno; ride one of the most spectacular coastal roads in the world all the way to Sorrento via Amalfi.

    We start the day with an early train ride to Salerno. Here we get on our bikes and begin our final ride along one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in Italy: the stunning Amalfi Coast. After a short climb up to Vietri, we follow the undulating coastal route to Cetara and continue uphill to the dramatic viewpoint of Capo d’Orso. We then head towards Amalfi itself, where we have time for a short stop and stroll. In the afternoon we ride past Positano, and cross the ridge to then wind down to the nice resort town of Sorrento. Here we can toast to our accomplishment, perhaps with a drink or two down at the beach and a dive into the Bay of Naples, in sight of Mt. Vesuvius. Those who wish can opt for a stroll in the historic centre, or perhaps just a few hours of relaxation. In the evening we all gather together for a last great evening meal (optional). 

    Meals included:
    Breakfast
    Distance covered: 60 km / 37 miles
    Total ascent (m):
    1400
  • Day 8

    End Sorrento.

Those who are interested in exploring more of this stunning part of Italy may opt to add some extra nights in Sorrento or the Amalfi coast, and extend this fantastic week of cycling with a few days of relaxation and sightseeing.

Accommodation

Hotels and Agriturismo

We spend 6 nights in different 3 and 4-star hotels with en suite facilities and one night in a traditional 'agriturismo' - a beautifully converted farmhouse in the Cilento National Park. The hotels have been chosen for their warm hospitality and their typical Italian character. Some hotels have a swimming pool or a beach nearby which will be greatly appreciated in summer. Most of the hotels have restaurants serving typical regional cuisine and delicious local produce.

List of hotels normally used:

Hotel Covo Dei Saraceni - Polignano

Hotel Italia - Matera

Becco Della Civetta - Castelmezzano

Hotel Palazzo Cestari - Montesano

Agriturismo Villa Vea - Bellosguardo

Please note that a member of the group may be allocated a single room by default if the make-up of the group means there isn’t anyone for them to share with. Paying the supplement in advance is the only way to guarantee a single room.

Weather & Seasonality

When to go

Southern Italy is characterised by a hot, dry climate in summer, with cooler but slightly damper spring and autumn periods, and at coastal levels mild, damp winters. Rainfall is more common in the winter months with an average of one day in three affected. Unseasonable cold spells are possible at any time of year, during which time you will need warm clothes. As you will be crossing some mountainous regions in the interior, temperatures are expected to be slightly cooler than down by the coast. It is very important to be equipped for cooler weather in early and late season departures.

Discount for bringing your own bike: £90.

A quality local hire bike is now included in the overall price of our cycling holidays. At the time of booking we will take your height in order to reserve equipment. There may on occasions be insufficient bikes available in the correct size; we will endeavour to find suitable alternative equipment but this cannot be guaranteed. We will tell you before you book whether suitably sized bikes are available.

Conditions

1. The equipment remains the property of the supplier and you may not sell, hire out or part possession with the equipment.

2. You must not misuse the equipment and must return it in the same condition as when received (ordinary wear and tear excepted). The supplier is entitled to charge for any damage caused to the equipment during the period of hire.

3. You must ensure that the equipment is adequately secured when not in use. In the event of the equipment being lost or stolen, you may be liable for the replacement value of the equipment

4. You must not use the equipment whilst under the influence of drink or drugs and should immediately notify the Supplier in the event of breakdown or loss.

Bringing Your Own Bike

If you prefer the familiarity of your own bike, you may, of course, bring it along. Please advise us at the time of booking and you will receive a discount off the price of the holiday, as specified above. You will be responsible for any extra baggage charges, please speak to our Sales team for individual airline fees. You will also be responsible for assembling and disassembling your bike as well as bringing along spare parts and any tools specific to it. Our cycling team only carry the relevant spares for the hire fleet. Any clients bringing their own bike should ensure they have adequate cover for loss, damage or theft under their travel, home contents or a specialist insurance policy. If Exodus is confident that we have taken all reasonable care to ensure the safety of your bike, in the rare event of loss, damage or theft you will need to claim under your own insurance policy.

Extra Bike Bits

You may like to bring your own pedals and saddle (excluding the seat post) or gel saddle cover to fit to the hire bikes. We encourage this, if it is your preference. However, please note that you are responsible for your own equipment, and removing your saddle/pedals at the end of the trip. We cannot guarantee the return of any bike parts left behind.

Exodus Policy on Cycling Helmets

Wearing a helmet is mandatory for anyone taking part in any guided Exodus cycling holiday. Group members must bring their own helmets, as they are not available for hire, even if they are hiring a bike from Exodus.

For self-guided cycling holidays wearing a helmet is highly recommended. Customers who choose to ignore our advice do so entirely at their own risk and on the understanding that it may affect the validity of their travel insurance. It should also be noted that in some countries we travel to wearing a helmet is already a legal requirement.

Cycling of all kinds has its dangers and accidents can happen from time to time. Please ensure that you are properly prepared for the riding you are going to undertake.

Recommended Cycling Clothing

Padded cycling shorts (with loose 'over-shorts' where recommended), breathable clothing, and a lightweight waterproof/windproof top. Shoes with relatively stiff soles are better for biking, but are not essential unless you are cycling long distances. Most people want to carry certain items with them during the day while cycling, for this we recommend a large bum-bag or small close-fitting daysack.

E-Bikes Available

Electric bikes offer all the thrills and healthy exercise of a regular bike, but with one crucial difference - power! A tiny electric motor (capped at 25mph) assists your pedalling, allowing you to make molehills out of mountains. Cycle further, see more, have more fun. They are just perfect if you want to try a trip with companions of differing fitness level - or a trip at a slightly harder grade - and want to know there’s a bit of motor power available if you need it.

Practical Information

All nationalities require a full passport that must be valid beyond the intended length of stay. It is your responsibility to have the correct personal documents and to obtain your own visa, if one is necessary, in accordance with the regulations of the country you are to visit. The information offered below is to help you with that process. We are not responsible for the actions of local immigration and customs officials, whether at points of entry or otherwise, and any subsequent effects.

Certain European nationalities may be able to travel within Europe on their national identity card. Check carefully with the relevant authorities if you intend to do this.

Visa

Italy

There are no specific health risks on this trip.

Vaccination

Italy

There are no specific health risks.

Travel health can often be something people forget about before going away, but a little preparation and knowledge can go a long way to help you stay fit and healthy while abroad.

The above information can change at short notice; as we are not qualified to answer all your questions about travel health we strongly recommend you contact your Medical Professional or a Travel Health Clinic at least 8 weeks prior to departure for up-to-date information. Please note: vaccinations that are routinely recommended to residents of the UK, North America or Australasia are not considered to form part of the travel health advice, and you should ensure these are kept up to date where necessary.

Insurance - are you adequately covered?

It is a condition of joining any of our holidays that you must be fully insured against medical and personal accident risks (to include repatriation costs and air ambulance or helicopter rescue services where appropriate). On arrival in destination for your trip, you will be asked to present details to your leader or local representative of your policy.

If you are resident in the UK we strongly recommend the Exodus travel insurance policy, this is specifically designed to cover all activities on your trip. If arranging your own policy please ensure that you are covered for all activities that are part of the trip, optional activities that you intend to take part in and/or on high altitude itineraries, that you are covered up to the maximum altitude of the trip.

Please note that European Health Insurance Cards (EHIC) will only be valid for most UK citizens up to 31st December 2020.  This gives you medical care at a reduced cost, and some cases for free, in many European countries, but should not be considered a substitute for adequate insurance.

Important Information

On all guided trips

Although our leaders are well trained to deal with different capabilities, if they have any concerns about someone’s ability to safely partake in an activity, or their impact on other people’s enjoyment, we authorise them to take necessary action which, in some circumstances, may involve asking someone to miss that activity.

Although rarely enforced, by booking this trip you agree to section 14 of our Booking Conditions which clearly states that our leaders have the authority to do this. In these circumstances we will ensure anyone sitting out is safely provided for and offered alternative options where possible. Refunds will not be provided for activities missed and customers may be liable for additional costs incurred.

On all trips

In booking this trip you should be confident in your ability to participate in all activities described in these Trip Notes. If you have any doubt about your suitability you should call the Exodus office and ask to speak to one of the experts on this itinerary.

The information in these Trip Notes is given in good faith. Where differences exist between the Trip Notes and our current brochure or website, the Trip Notes supersede the brochure and website. All holidays can be subject to unexpected changes; in order to enjoy them you should be prepared to be flexible where necessary. Occasionally, as stated in our brochure, it may not be possible to follow the itinerary as planned. This may be for a variety of reasons - climatic, political, physical or other. In these circumstances we will make the best possible alternative arrangements that maintain the integrity of the original itinerary.

As fuel prices, airport taxes and exchange rates fluctuate, and airlines manage their rates to match demand, it is proving harder than ever to guarantee our Flight Inclusive prices.
