MV Agusta has put together a together a touring package that’s sure to excite. In an effort to promote the ever capable MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800, the brand has tapped Dakar stalwart Alessandro “Ciro” De Petri to lead an exclusive seven-day trip in the Mediterranean. For many in the US, who are still currently encased in snow, a trip to the Mediterranean sounds pretty good right about now.

Hitting the three largest Mediterranean islands and covering a distance of roughly 1150 miles, the adventure will end at the MV Agusta facilities in Schiranna, Varese,  for a full tour for the perfect capstone.

As of now, this is the general route that MV has planned: First attacking the slopes of Mt. Etna, riders will move onto the legendary “Targa Florio,” the same route used in early 20th century automotive races and will then make their way to Palermo to catch a ferry.

In the morning, more good riding awaits; the winding roads of Riveiera di Ponente will lead the group into Alghero. From there, through the Barbagia Mountains, the Emerald Coast awaits into Corsica. Boarding another transport in Santa Teresa di Gallura for Bonifacio, the riding will tone down a bit to check out all of what the island has to offer.

Once again, you will set sail from Bastia to arrive in Savona and make the quick work of the last leg of your journey to Schiranna.

Ciro has been involved with endurance races since the days of hitting the African continent aboard a Caviga Elefant. He’ll be on hand to not only guide you through the toughest roads, but also provide technical and navigational support – in short, you’ll be in good hands.
