What if I haven’t ridden a bike in years? 2017-03-20T17:44:45+00:00

The expression ‘as easy as riding a bike’ was coined for a reason. You will be amazed how quickly cycling comes back to you and you’ll be at ease in no time. Our e-bikes (limited availability, surcharge applied) may help you in recovering the feeling with cycling. There is plenty of time at the beginning of the tour to get used to the bicycle. Please note, unfortunately we do not have time on tours to teach people to ride a bike completely from scratch.

Spring and autumn are delicius, and no fear about summer’s heat: Naples lies on the sea and you can appreciate the summer breeze. We check forecast regularly and choose the right moment of the day to start the tour. Moreover we offer a combo tour, bike and kayak experience, so refresh yourself with a swim!

Is a bicycle the best way to see Naples? 2017-03-20T17:41:43+00:00

A bike is by far the best way to see Naples and surroundings. The city isn’t really pretty flat but with lots of old narrow streets, a scenic seaside road and all the main attractions enclosed in a distance suitable to many different types of cyclists (and cycling activies), only by bicycle can you get to places easily and quickly. You can see more by bike in a few hours than you ever could on foot or by bus!

We appreciate that for some people the idea of cycling in Naples can be a daunting prospect so our guides make every effort to allay fears and build confidence. By the end of the ride we are certain that you will have a smile on your face and agree that a bicycle is a grest way to get around Naples!
