The southern regions of Italy have some great routes for mountain bikers as well as road cyclists.

If you prefer to stick to the tarmac, try riding the southern Tyrrhenian coast. The route takes in the Amalfi Coast from Sorrento to Salerno, and then the coastal section of the Cilento National Park. At 295 kilometers, you can do it in five days, or six if you want to go at a more leisurely pace.

The south coast of Sicily is another top route, taking in amazing beaches and some incredible archaeological sites. Make sure you stop off at the Valley of the Temples at Agrigento, and dip inland to Modica and Scicli, two fine examples of Baroque cities.

Off-road fans should check out Il Giro dell’Etna, a route that takes you around Mount Etna National Park in Sicily. It’s the highest volcano in Europe, and the lava makes for a great ride. There are also hundreds of kilometers of trails that crisscross the island just waiting to be explored.

Cilento National Park is also a great spot for mountain biking, with 52 different routes. They run from the beaches to the mountain ridges, with trails to suit a variety of different skill levels.
