Italy

My favourite routes in Italy

Italy is heaven when it comes to motorcycling. If I should choose one area it has to be the Dolomites. I have had some of my most memorable trips with Moena and Hotel Stella as a base. The Sellarunde; Sella Pass, Gardena Pass, Valparola Pass, Giau Pass is memorable, and there are many other routes to choose from in the district. And why not combine the motorcyling with some high altitude trekking. Listed bellow you will find some of my favourite routes. Enjoy.
