Geneva to Milan

an Alpine adventure - 10-15 September 2020

2020 booking now open - apply for your super Early Bird booking discount

Our 2019 version of this Tour is now fully booked but we are pleased to announce dates for our 2020 version.

This is a classic cycle tour with a twist.  While many would take the picturesque but gentler roads eastwards from Geneva, through Switzerland before turning south to cross into Italy, Viva Velo has opted to design this new tour with a French col or two in mind.  Crossing the alps via the Telegraph and Galibier, made famous in many a Tour de France, means this tour is bound to present a challenge but one we think will be more than manageable to the amateur keen to pedal in the wheel tracks of the pros .  Scheduled over 5 days you’ll take on the Alps before speeding towards your final destination in Milan across the flatter lands of northern Italy.  For those with a little less time we are also offering a shortened version of the tour which finishes in four days in the delightful Piedmontese city of Asti, famous for its sparkling wine.  What better way to celebrate the end of an epic cycle tour than with a glass of the local fizz?   

This tour will run from 10-15 September, 2020 (10-14 September for the shorter version).  To register your interest and claim your early bird discount code giving you £100 off the advertised price if you book before June 2019 simply click the ‘Learn More’ button or fill in the contact form below.
