This region is the home of the late great, tragic Marco Pantani. You will see why he became a climbing machine if you decide to travel inland to the mountains. Or, you can ride along the coast and take it easy. Either way, if you are used to being treated like a convict while cycling, you must come here - they treat all cyclists with respect. It will actually take getting used to, but trucks will patiently wait for you to crest a hill before overtaking you. The region has its own well marked bike routes and a detailed map available at the hotels and bike shops. It is a wonderful place!
