Wonder Italy is the dream born in 2015 from the desire to live an exciting experience, among the beautiful landscapes and architecture of the Umbria Region.
From the crazy views guarded by the Apennines, Wonder Umbria has become a widespread project, until it turned into "In the most beautiful villages in Italy": here is an amazing motorcycle vacation that will start from Umbria and will cross Tuscany, Marche and Emilia-Romagna, three caskets full of fairy-tale landscapes and picturesque villages all to be discovered.
This is the route of Wonder Italy 2022, three villages a day to visit by motorcycle in which to admire the enchanting views and scenarios between earth and sky that touch the most intimate chords of the romantic and dreamy biker.
It will be possible to experience food and wine routes between Dozza, Brisighella and San Giovanni in Marignano, passing through Anghiari, Sassoferrato, Treia and Montefalco.
Three regions compared in which the local cuisine reserves authentic excellence, accompanied by a good glass of wine from local wineries.
Since 2015 and Wonder Umbria, the initial project has become a widespread format that includes some of the most beautiful regions of our Boot.
The project wants to share fundamental values such as friendship, passion for the bike and the same interests, love for the landscape and desire for adventure. All united by the warrior spirit that roars in the most convinced biker.
Wonder Italy wants to stimulate curiosity and rediscover terroir and fabulous villages, including the treasures preserved.
Art, history and culture blend wonderfully with the customs and traditions of the locals, without forgetting what motorcyclists like to gourmet: good food and a good glass of wine, including Chianti, Montepulciano and Sangiovese.
