Guide

Tour Leaders are quite simply the glue that holds our tours together. They are chosen for their travel experience and people skills and are thoroughly trained by Explore, widely acknowledged as some of the best training in the industry. A Tour Leader's ultimate aim is to ensure everyone is well looked after and have a fantastic trip. They are there to ensure that the tour logistics run smoothly, that health and safety is adhered to and provide comprehensive briefings at the beginning and throughout the tour.

Meals

A key facet of our responsible approach to tourism is that we encourage our groups to eat in local restaurants that prepare locally grown food. We give customers choice as to their meals and do not use rather bland and impersonal hotel restaurants or all- inclusive options 7 Breakfasts 2 Dinners

Itinerary of your trip Cycling In Italy - Cilento To The Amalfi Coast

  • Day 1 Day 1: Join Trip At Naples Airport; Drive To San Severino In Cilento National Park
    • 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

      Day 1: Join Trip At Naples Airport; Drive To San Severino In Cilento National Park

      Arriving at Naples Airport (NAP), we provide two separate transfers to our hotel in San Severino, one at 11 am and one in the evening at 6 pm. The drive usually takes around 2.5 hours. San Severino is a small village located in Cilento National Park at the foot of Monte Bulgheria. Still largely off the tourist radar Cilento NP is the second largest in Italy and its isolated location has left the beautiful countryside unspoilt and local traditions preserved. Over the next few days we will explore by bike the rugged coastline and pine-forested mountainous interior dotted with historic villages. The hotel has an outdoor pool that is usually open from June to October but can vary depending on weather conditions each year. It is possible to arrange a vehicle to the beach of Palinuro through reception; cost varies according to number of passengers. Another option for free time this afternoon is to visit the village of San Severino - a 2 km walk or taxi ride from the hotel. The Tour Leader will arrive in the evening and the introductory briefing to the whole group will happen on day 2 straight after breakfast at 8 am. No cycling today.

  • Day 2 Day 2: Loop Ride Along Jagged Coastline With Scenic Climb Inland For Great Views
    • 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

      Day 2: Loop Ride Along Jagged Coastline With Scenic Climb Inland For Great Views

      After breakfast we spend some time getting comfortable with our bikes and making any necessary adjustments. The first ride starts off by heading around the foot of Mt. Bulgheria, towards the village of San Giovanni a Piro. We then climb up to the grassy plateau of Ciolandrea where we gain terrific coastal views looking south. A very scenic downhill section then leads us to picturesque fishing village of Marina di Camerota. After a break for ice cream we cycle inland again, climbing up to Camerota village. The final part of today's ride is along the Mingardo river canyon back to San Severino. Please note that there is the option to ride in a support vehicle today for 6km of the climb, thus avoiding 300 m of ascent from Marina di Camerota to Camerota. Our total cycling distance today is approximately 54 kilometres (1100 metres total accumulated ascent and descent).

  • Day 3 Day 3: Coastal Linear Ride To Marina Di Ascea Via Medieval Pisciotta
    • 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

      Day 3: Coastal Linear Ride To Marina Di Ascea Via Medieval Pisciotta

      Today we leave San Severino behind and ride north through this land of myth and legend. Our route leads us firstly to the coastal village of Palinuro, named after the helmsman of Virgil's Aeneid who fell overboard. We continue along the jagged coastline to the medieval village of Pisciotta, picturesquely situated with commanding views along the coast. The tiny port of Marina di Pisciotta has kept centuries-old fishing techniques alive, using the moon and the stars to determine where the anchovies will surface. We plan to break here for lunch before continuing along the coastal road past olive groves and Mediterranean macchia or shrubland. Finally we descend to the tranquil coastal village of Marina di Ascea and our hotel where we spend the next two nights. Our total cycling distance today is approximately 40 kilometres (700 metres total accumulated ascent and 800 metres descent).
