The road to excellence: Food. Fast cars. Music. Biking.
Artful living – Inspired through the centuries
Our bike tour is set in the largest fertile plain of Italy, the Po River Valley, a significant agricultural area since ancient times. The ancient Romans saw the potential of this region and built the 260 kilometer Via Emilia route in 187BC – connecting Milan to Ravenna. It joined people, cultures, and trade that truly opened new ideas to the region and then to the world. It is evident in the region’s culinary impact, automotive engineering and design, and in its musical influence. Emilia Romagna has the strongest bike culture of Italy boasting 15,000 cycling routes in the region and at least that many “townie” bikes used for daily transportation in the villages. Biking is a stylish part of the rhythm.
