"Charlie and the staff at Scatto bring you as close to an authentic local experience as anyone could ask for. The pro cycling guests, the excellent cuisine, the majestic views and accommodations are sure to bring you back for more. Like Steve Jobs once said, "People don't know what they want until I give it to them....." well I did not know what I wanted in a cycling tour until Scatto gave it to me. Truly an experience you will never forget."

"Scatto's Venice to Rome tour is a display of Italian culture and history. The route has been curated by local cyclists to combine the most luxurious food, drink, and sightseeing experiences with a challenging cycling course."
Charlie Lozier - Des Moines, Iowa, USA
"My first Italian bike trip, exceptionally well organized and executed. "Celebrity" pro bike riders a surprisingly big asset : I truly felt special and blessed to have the experience of riding along with them ( as well as the great riders in my group). Liked the "linear route" - that is, I wanted to see the country but also a sense of really making a journey to a destination ( Roma!). Hotels and food - fantastic! Liked the simplicity of having most everything included: did not have to choose where to eat, how much to spend on meals - this is mentally very refreshing. Charlie and Dave, Massimo and "Pego" - all wonderful people and I am so happy to have gotten to know all of you. I am personally have great interest in the history and architecture and art of Italy - and the daily rides were long and tough and so the trip was not particularly rich with stops to learn - that is - not a pleasant guide to tell us about the sights and tour villas along the way / an exception was the lunch at the Verrazano castle where we had a little tour and I really enjoy things like that. IF - the trip was another day - then perhaps a little more culture. In my case - son Ted and I visited Florence the day before with museums and so on - so I think Scatto should do what it does well which is BIKING and each individual can experience the culture of Italy on their own terms and time before and after the ride. Charlie: (yes I know I was the guy in the back with the least pedal power) - I would absolutely love to do the Dolomite trip in future, and I will follow you to keep informed. Thanks so much for putting this together and this trip with my son was a trip of a lifetime! "

"Scatto is a truly professional service with real "locals" as guides. Their choice of routes, restaurants and hotels has been done with vigorous and comprehensive research. Most importantly, the guides and people working for Scatto are a joy to ride with and relax in the evening with over great Italian food and wine!"
