Alpine discovery by BMW motorcycle
Italy – Austria – Slovenia
Like all our 'Speedy' tours, this tour is an excellent choice for skilled riders who are a bit short on time, but want to experience some of the best motorcycle riding in Europe.
In total of 9 days (7 riding days), we will ride through famous Italian Dolomites that are considered as 'motorcycle heaven', to the best Austrian roads around 'Grossglockner' and its high alpine road that reaches up to 2.504 meters / 8.215 ft after 48 kilometers pure fun.
Alpine Discovery Tour starts in Venice, Italy; a romantic city we all know from breathtaking scenes of many movies. Therefore, we encourage you to arrive one day earlier and experience all that you've seen: 'get lost' in numerous streets in the centre, take a 'gondola' or 'vaporetto' ride along the Grand Canal while having a typical Italian gelato. Of course, cappuccino and pizza/pasta/lasagnas are a 'must'. Just, please don't try all those action shots from the movie 'Italian Job'.
Starting from Venice, we will ride towards Corvara, a beautiful city and famous ski resort in the middle of the Dolomites. We will adventure many passes like Passo di Gavia, Passo Giau, Passo Rombo etc.; not missing out the famous 'Passo Stelvio' (2.758m/9.048 ft) with its 48 switchbacks on the east side, and another 39 on the west side. That's fun!
Venice (VCE- Marco Polo) is a smaller European, but quite busy airport so be sure to check for direct flights when searching for tickets.
