Italy's Undiscovered Coast

Join the Pentagon Ski Club on a Vermont Bicycle Tour (VBT) to this seldom-visited corner of Italy, where olive groves yield a golden elixir and Adriatic breezes send the spirit soaring!  Charming old harbors, limestone cities, and Italian warmth greet you at every bend.  And your discoveries continue into each evening at historic masserie, fortified farms, where the bounty of the earth reveals the heart of this special and unique place.

Space is LIMITED to 20 participants!
