It leads through the Italian regions of Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna to Lombardy. Tuscany is considered a historical landscape, important cultural landscape and heartland of the Renaissance. It is known for its hilly landscape, which is particularly characterized by the many pines, columnar cypress, olive trees and vines. Pisa, with the famous Leaning Tower, Siena and San Gimignano, a UNESCO World Heritage Site characterized by medieval architecture, are popular stops on a cultural tour of Tuscany.

Bologna in Emilia-Romagna is one of the oldest cities in Italy and home to the oldest European university. Also a UNESCO World Heritage Site is the Piazza Grande in Modena. Milan, the capital of the Lombardy region, is one of Italy’s most historic cities. Today’s financial capital of Italy is also a cultural and fashion city of international standing.



  • 6 x night / breakfast buffet in the mentioned hotels or comparable hotels
  • 5 x dinner (multi-course 4-course meals and salad buffet usually in the hotels – possibly also restaurants) on 5.5. no dinner 
  • Bus service with bicycle trailer for the racing bikes – our exclusive Long-Distance-Bus has 36 seats (very large seat spacing – Toilett/Kitchen/Minibar etc.) 
  • Minibus (8-seats), which is always with the cyclists. The bus can also be used on the day of arrival in Pisa for transfer services from the airport to the hotel! If a larger number arrive at the same time also the big bus … .. The bus is also helpful in breakdowns – has tool / spare wheel / material with it. Material is calculated separately (Bike Smarts, etc. if needed) 
  • Creation of the tracks with GPX files and different stage lengths 90 to max 150 km and 1000 to 1600 HM – here we plan so that the bus brings the weaker guests / cyclists later on the track and earlier possibly picks up. So it is possible to have 2 groups. In addition, the minibus can still be active. So we have many variations here (we will research the routes exactly – if necessary we will drive the tours before) 
  • 1 experienced road bike guide from Launer-Reisen – English-speaking, who coordinates the entire group and helps on site – gives tips and is in constant contact with the transfer vehicles. The road bike guide also drives – if desired with the main group. 
  • Species Sport Eating for the cyclist. At least once a day for Isodrinks / gels / bars. We calculate an average of 3 bar / iso and 1 gel. (We have Sponser – Swiss brand product – one of the best products on the market) 
  • Preparation of the tour in English – We will also have a map made, so that it will be a nice tender. 
  • Processing of registrations via our booking system 
  • Payment also possible by credit card
