The best part of our job is to hear your stories from the road, whether it was a guide who helped celebrate your special moment (anniversary, birthday, etc), or if you experienced or learned something new on our tour. We're inviting past and current Ciclismo Classico alumni to share their fondest memories and experiences through our social media.
One day at the very beginning of my career with Ciclismo I was reading one of our itineraries and came upon a term I had never heard or seen before: Slow Food. I read another itinerary and there it was again!
February is passion month, and we're celebrating by bringing you a list of the most romantic European hotels. When you go on a bike tour with Ciclismo Classico, you'll be staying at carefully selected hotels that provide the perfect complement to riding, dining, and other activities. From cozy inns and guesthouses to medieval castles and monasteries, we’ve chosen lodgings for their local flavor and charm as well as for their amenities and convenience.
When traveling to Italy, the most important thing you need to know (other than how to order coffee), is the Italian greeting. And no, I'm not talking about common Italian phrases, I'll save that for another time. I'm talking about il bacio (the kiss) or il saluto (the greeting). Who would have thought that this common gesture - the cheek kiss - could cause so much anxiety and confusion, and often lead to some awkward encounters?
We all have that one friend, family member, or co-worker that is obsessed with their bike. Road, mountain, hybrid... you name it, they have 3 of each. With the holidays around the corner, you might be thinking about what to get the cycling enthusiast in your life, and we're here to ease the process and make holiday shopping a blast.
Many claim that espresso is the Italian drink. And like everything the Italians do, the preparation of this sacred drink should not be taken lightly. That's why when you travel to Italy, you must have un caffè. What is it about this tiny cup of coffee that makes everyone go wild?
