Maps for Bicycling in Italy
Good maps are the key to finding great bicycle routes. In Italy I recommend using the Italian Touring Club’s 1:200,000 series. The TCI(Touring Club Italiano) as it is called in Italy, publishes sixteen regional maps and a set of three road atlases for all of Italy. These are perfect for both planning and riding in Italy. Buy them in Italy or at major bookstores in the U.S.
I do NOT suggest using Michelin maps in Italy. The scale is not good enough (1:400,000). TCI maps are the maps of choice.
If you need bicycles to go with those maps, let us know.
We have a fleet of 300 bkes in our warehouse in Italy that are just awaiting someone with a villa in Tuscany, Venetor or Umbria to rent them. We can also help you find that little apartment for the week in southern Tuscany if you’d like.
