Italy Trip 2018


However we are planning to repeat our popular Spain trip in late Oct/early November - now in it's third year!

Outstanding roads and 20 + degrees most days - fantastic way to cap off the biking season.

Italy Trip 2018
Our big event of the summer calendar is back, it’s our 15th annual Italy Trip!
After 15 years of taking our customers and their bikes to the twisty hills of Italy, we think we are starting to get the hang of it...
Where we go
This year we return to the Tuscan village of Scarperia, just north of Florence and a stones throw from the Mugello circuit.  It is an ideal base surrounded by beautiful scenery, amazing roads and plenty of must see attractions within riding distance.
What we do
We plan daily routes on roads through amazing scenery and or iconic locations. Whether a trip to Imola for lunch at the circuit, a visit to the Ducati factory, the Ferrari museum at Modena, a ride down the Chianti road to idyllic medieval towns, a cultural evening in Florence, you won’t be short of things to see and do.
But as with all our trips, you are free to do what you want on the day.
If you want to come on one of our organised ride outs – great!  If you want to do your own thing or take a day off relaxing by the pool, then that’s fine.
You can ride as much or as little as you want, in a way that is comfortable for you.  We will be on hand to recommend longer routes for the more adventurous or just short local rides for a change of pace.
How it works
All the bikes are shipped from our dealership direct to the Hotel in Scarperia, along with your riding gear and luggage.  The next time you see your pride and joy it will be in the secure underground car park with Tuscan mountain roads mere minutes away.
We use Focused Events, Europe’s largest track day and motorcycle logistics company, so your machine is in excellent hands.
We all follow a few days later by plane and are transferred from the airport to be reunited with our bikes – it’s that simple.
After that we can enjoy a full week of riding without needing ferries and Autobahns before we get to the good roads!
The dates we fly are:
Outbound                      - Thursday 5th July
Return                            - Thursday 12th July
Numbers are limited to 28 customer bikes, and our trips always sell out.  So we must give priority to customers who will be riding a Triumph (or Ducati) bought from ourselves.  Any spare places after these will be offered on a first come first served basis.
Single bike, single person, single room                  £1195
Single bike, single person, double room                £1202 (if available)
Single bike, two people, double room                    £1385
Two bikes, two people, double room                     £1875
These costs include bike transport to and from Italy, hotel accommodation, bed and breakfast and coach transfers to and from Pisa Airport and the hotel.  In addition the cost also covers a Bologna based Ducati Factory Tour and Museum Visit, evening transport to Florence and the first night meal in a local restaurant.
Details of the Manchester/Pisa flights we are operating around will be provided, but these must be booked and paid for by yourselves.  Your bikes and gear must be dropped off/collected from the shop.
We are immensely proud of our trips and their enduring popularity, they’ve even received special recognition from our manufacturers! 
Whether you ride out with us or we cross paths in the hotel bar to share tales of our days adventure; we’re sure you will forge great memories, and hopefully a few new two wheeled friends. 
If this sounds like your cup of Cappucino (or glass of Chianti!) email Heather at
or text 07851 701 704 for more information, flight details or to reserve your place.
From all the Jagger family and the team, we look forward to seeing you in Bella Italia – Ciao!
