Amalfi Coast and Southern Italy
Motorcycle Tours Italy

6 - 16 October, 2017

Welcome Riders!

Nine riding days on the beautiful roads of Southern Italy! Fall in love with the colors and the fragrances of the Costiera Amalfitana; ride the Italian “coast to coast” from Campania to Puglia; get lost on the off-beaten tracks of Basilicata; return to Rome through the dramatic back-roads of the Abruzzese Pennines; visit historical venues such as Pompei and Matera. And, if all of this is not enough, get ready to enjoy the Italian night-life!
Yes, riding on 2 wheels through the chic Mediterranean towns of Amalfi, Positano & Ravello is unforgettable. The visions of historical Matera and witnessing the devastation of Pompei are without words. Endless miles of exciting and picturesque coastal roads of Southern Italy’s shoreline make this trip almost surreal. We won’t forget the fabulous food and hospitality.. and nor will you!

This fabulous tour starts and ends in the beautiful city of Rome.

You will be in very capable hands during your days here in Southern Italy. Tour Leader Enrico Grassi, Founder of Hear the Road Tours has spent many hours developing the routes to ride, the cities to visit, the sites to see as well as the hotels and food options key to making this kind of an adventure something to remember and cherish.

Testimonials

Howard & Cheryl W.

“Most amazing trip we have ever done. Food, hotels, scenery, and company. We would not change anything. We would tour with this company always.”

Dean & Estherlee M.

“We booked our tour with Enrico and Hear the Road simply based on a few e-mails and conversations.  Should you take a tour with Enrico, and I hope you do, expect to be thrilled and enthralled with your tour.  We did the Amalfi coast and southern Italy ride.  Enrico is well known is the area, is very familiar with local customs, the most entertaining routes, the food, the best accommodations and how to navigate his way around and through the towns and villages.  Always attentive, when needed.  Always informative, and arranged everything.  Parking is always a challenge, and Enrico prearranged everything.  Even in Pompeii, where traffic is absolutely wild, we rode directly to our parking lot, met our tour guide and off we went.  Perfect.
Thank you Enrico. We will be joining you for a ride in 2017.  Just having difficulty picking which one.”

Ronald H.

“Hello y’all from the foothills of the Smokey Mountains.
What I loved: Everything, way beyond my expectations, “near perfect”!
What I would change: Some of us wanted to ride a little slower to take in the stunning view, others wanted to ride fast. I understand deadlines and you can’t please everyone. So once again “near perfect”!
Thanks again Enrico, for all you did for us to make this tour a life time memory.”

Creation of the tour: Associazione Culturale Hear The Road.
Organization and marketing: Hear The Road srl.
