Gran Tour Cycling and Events in Italy
Did you like the food and wine from Piedmont that you had at The Pasta Factory?
Are you interesting in better understanding our culture and our food?
In collaboration with the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry for the UK we are glad to promote an ecological and sportive way to do it!
GRANTOUR CYCLING AND EVENTS IN ITALY
Langhe, Roero and Monferrato
Barolo and Barbaresco wines, Truffles, Slow food: The land of gourmets
Former professional cyclists, event planners, travel designers, tour guides; all of us come from different experiences, different backgrounds and different regions of Italy. One thing we have in common: the passion for cycling and for good living. We live in a country of great beauty and Gran Tour Events has become our home, the starting point of our adventures on two wheels. Come and discover Italy with us, avoiding all clichés.
Many cycling operators offer beautiful tours of Italy but ours feature one distinctive difference: they were conceived by locals, in 100% local spirit and style.
We favour vintage villas and family-run farms representing the local culture over lavish but soulless 5 star hotels. The selection was carried out taking into great consideration location, charm, quality of service and, most importantly, the friendliness of the managers!
ONLY SMALL GROUPS
We have decided to limit the number of participants to ten people. Thus we can guarantee the highest quality and safety standards, providing customized services of the kind you will only find on personalized tours.
AIMED AT REAL CYCLING ENTHUSIASTS
Tours are designed to deliver excitement so they require confidence with a bike and a good level of physical preparation. This does not mean they are gruelling stage tours for professional cyclists: our aim is the pleasure of cycling, and we have the experience to manage different levels of speed and proficiency.
GUIDED BY WINE AND CULINARY EXCELLENCE
It is well known that Italy is the motherland of good cuisine. Our tours will take you through wine tastings in the cellars of renowned producers, visits to organic farms and slowfood points: yours will also be a journey through the world of flavour and well-being.
Grantour guides are trained to keep you entertained throughout the entire tour. Beyond their specific technical skills they are also knowledgeable about local culture and true connoisseurs of the area’s wines and foods: they will be the best travelling companions ever.
We believe holidays should be about relaxing and having fun, without worries of any kind. That is why we offer an “all inclusive” formula, where every small pleasure, a cappuccino at the bar, or a good bottle of wine for dinner, must not be considered an extra.
