Simonetta Bike Tours Travel Style
These bike tours are culturally focused, designed to give travelers a glimpse at local life in some distinct Italian regions. Groups are kept very small - between 4-15 people typically. Large private groups of 30+ are also an option.
This allows for tours and itineraries that explore along smaller rustic paths and get out into the countryside among small villages. Accommodations are 3 or 4 stars, nice B&Bs or hotels.
Rides are intended for a wide range of physical levels and ages (between 30-60) - so expect fairly flat terrain and an average of 5-6 hours a day. There is also a dedicated support van on all trips.
Why Choose a Simonetta Bike Tour?

You can tailor make your trip or just rent bikes from them. They are passionate about the “slow travel” mindset that comes with a cycling tour, and are dedicated to showing off their country and especially the region of Verona.
