Atessa - Campo Imperatore 15 - 18 July 2021
The spirit of the event
Abruzzo Grand Tour is a motorbike sport event of the “Adventouring" type. It takes place in 3 stages, through valleys, gullies and the spectacular mountains of the Italian region’s most important protected areas.
The meeting and start will take place at the Honda Motor factory in Atessa, where the first 50 participants who have requested it, will be invited for lunch by Honda Motor on the afternoon before the start of the event, and will have the privilege of a guided tour of the factory of the world’s most important motorbike manufacturer.
Given the extraordinary culinary traditions of the region, great attention has been given to the choice of restaurants and eateries included in the tour.
For those coming from northern Italy or other European countries, we will arrange a motorbike and rider transport service from Milan to Atessa and back.
Flights from Orio al Serio to Pescara are also available.
