You might think it would be hard to find the best places to see in Italy, but you couldn’t be more wrong. Italy is one of the best places in the world to visit and ride a motorcycle. The weather is also wonderful. Italy has everything you would want for a perfect motorcycle touring experience – whether you would like huge open stretches of golden sand, majestic mountains, gentle rolling hills or interesting ancient cities jammed with history. The summers are generally very hot and often very dry, the people are very friendly and the food will let you eat cheaply on a long trip to Italy.
Some of the best places to see in Italy are the lakes regions. The first two best areas are Liguria and Val d’Orcia. The scenery is simply beautiful and the weather is usually perfect for off road riding. There are many picturesque farmhouses and small mountain villages along the lakes. Many families still live in these small stone villages, which are probably your best chance to take a glimpse into traditional Italian life.
The next best part of riding in Italy is riding along the beautiful roads. These are usually in the mountainous areas, such as the Alpes and the Apennies. The roads are usually in good condition, and pass by very beautiful scenery that you will definitely appreciate. If you take your own motorbike on these roads, you will need to make sure that you have a good travelling license and a suitable driving licence for the area you are travelling to.
When touring on your motorbike, it is worth taking an extra travel insurance policy to cover you whilst you are out travelling. It is much cheaper to buy a one-day premium than to pay for your breakdown insurance in the event of an accident or a breakdown. This is because you only pay for the one-day policy if you have made a claim on your policy in the past. If you never make a claim, then you will not need to pay for any of your premiums.
Before you go on your motorcycle tour, it is worth getting an insurance package for your motorbike. There are some great deals available for tourists, but there is also motorbike insurance to suit by private individuals. Some companies offer special deals for those who are travelling as a package with another family or a friend. Just ask your tour operator about the best packages for your needs.
Another thing that you should do before you even buy your motorcycle is to get a good guide for driving in Italy. You will need to have a guide for hours, as well as a driving licence from your home country. You can choose a good guide for several hundred dollars, so it is worth making an effort to get hold of the best one you can. You should make sure that it is valid before you take your motorcycle out on the open road. You can find all kinds of good motorcycle guides online. Just do a search for “motorcycle touring in Italy” and you will be able to find many options.
