Classic Larapinta Trek

I have returned from my Australia holidays and the Larapinta trek that I booked via your organization was the most wonderful experience. The scenery of central Australia is really awesome (you should go and visit yourself if you havenīt done it yet) and the organisation of the trek was perfect.

Many thanks to world expeditions. I will definitely come back to you for future trips.

Florence to Rome by Bike

A cycle journey through the 'green heart' of Italy, from the enchanting city of Florence to the nation's capital Rome. The contrasts are very noticeable as you leave behind Tuscany and arrive in the peaceful and mystical Umbria. As you cycle approximately 210km you will see cities like Assisi, Perugia, Spoleto and Terni, displaying an incredible wealth of art treasures, which take their visitors back to the Middle Ages. The cities have barely changed over the centuries and the rolling landscape dotted with vineyards and hill top towns will give you an appreciation of why the area is so popular with painters. On mostly back roads the route winds through the valleys of the Apennines and gentle hills near to Trasimeno Lake. At the end, the Eternal City of Rome awaits you, a fitting end to this exhilarating Italian journey by bike.
