The Milano Helvetia is a long established, family-run hotel located in the popular seaside town of Riccione and only 15 minutes from Rimini airport. During the summer it is a busy beach holiday hotel, but during spring and autumn months the hotel welcomes cyclists, offering a fully guided bike holiday service. The hotel offers between 1 and 3 different daily guided groups (dependent on the number of participants) riding to the nicest destinations in the area on the prettiest, least congested roads.
English-speaking guides will take you to beautiful destinations including Republic of San Marino, Urbino, San Leo and many more in the surrounding countryside, passing through quaint hilltop villages and towns along the way. It's a beautiful area and one that many guests, after discovering it, return to year after year.
The hotel offers everything a cyclist needs: guided bike tours, secure bike storage, bike rental, laundry of bike clothing, and delicious food with either the beach or pool to relax by after your days ride!
Prices include full board accommodation and include breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Also included in the price is wi-fi, use of the Turkish bath, solarium… and if you want a single room, should we have one available, unlike most hotels you won’t pay a supplement for it!
We are also happy to accommodate non-cycling partners. There are many things to do within the area, markets in Rimini and Riccione, wine tasting in Spadarolo, cheese tasting in Mondaino or a visit to San Marino. Bring the kids. There's the beach and the local aquaparks and centers.
*This tour is possible during July and August, but due to the peak travel months in Italy, pricing is upon request. Please inquire for further details.

Nove Colli Gran Fondo, 2018 - Are you more of a competitive cyclist or just looking for a new challenge and experience? Why not try a Gran Fondo, Italian style, the biggest of which is the Nove Colli in late May. Registration deadline is April 1, 2018.
If you think 215km and 4000m sounds too much, there is also a Medio Fondo of 135km and 1900m to select and you can decide which you choose on the ride itself along with 10,000 plus other cyclists. The Nove Colli package on our Dates & Prices page includes registration for this sold-out race event.
