Join us in a beautiful moto tour in the south of Italy with an incredible Mediterranean cousine and a fascinating history. Bleached by the sun and wet by surrounded seas, this is the ancientest Italy, rich of history and arts, complex and contradictory…a land with a soul
Starting from Rome, the route will take us in the heart of the Italian Appennino, we will have fun riding winding streets, scenic and desolated mountains that cut like a blade, the “backbone” of the southern Italy. A stop in Montecassino, scenery of one of the most sadly famous battle of the the II World War and headquarter of one of the most known abbey of the world, before going on to Basilicata. The New York Times define this region “the secret garden more guarded of Italy, hallow for the gorgeous beaches and the ancients cities, to know before the world find it”. We will visit and stay overnight in Matera, the city of the “stones”, European Capital of Culture 2019, World Heritage of Humanity by Unesco, a deserved fame owed for a difficult story but won by the indisputable beauty of the site. We will proceed to uncontaminated landscape, between surly mountains and depopulated villages that follows one another along our route, to the Tyrrhenian coastline until arriving in Maratea, where the statue of Christ of the Redeemer impressive erects, high on a spure rock dominates one of the most spectacular part of Tyrrhenian. From here, riding in a beautiful italian coastline routes, we will enter in the National Park of Cilento, a very surprise in this journey, taking the ss18, that give away to us savage landscapes, breathtaking turns, on an almost perfect asphalt and an almost inexistent traffic, what a beauty for a place that a few people known. Get us ready for the extraordinary!! At this point is missing to the appeal “only” Positano, in the Costiera Amalfitana.
