Thanks all for response thus far. Thx Phil for your notes – allowed me to add Thomson tour co to the list (https://www.thomsonbiketours.com/trip-calendar/trips/country/italy/).
For the various Italian climb tours inclusive of transfers, accomm, bfast/dinner, support:
– TopBike, aqto (Aus) around $6.8-6.9k for 9 day/8 nights
– Gruppetto (Aus) around $6.4-6.5k for 10 day/9 nights
– ItalyBike Tour (uk base) around $4.7-4.8k for 10 day/9 nights
– Thomson (us base) around around $5.1-5.2k for 8 day/7 nights
All these have typically 2 locations throughout the period. ItalyBike also has some shorter duration options.
Self support is an option, requiring a little more planning and hiring car etc, but cheaper.
I am starting to lean towards last week Aug, first week Sep 2023 with a view to further hols in Europe post the riding extravaganza. (although end f Giro, early June remains an option)
Keen for a partner(s) in crime for the Italian climbing so do let me know if you might be interested.
