Sud di altri tempi


Il vento tra i capelli per un viaggio alla scoperta delle coste del Sud Italia. Come? A bordo di una storica lambretta o di un auto d’epoca. Per gli appassionati dei motori o per chi, semplicemente, è affascinato dalle bellezze d’Italia, Meridianosedici organizza tour alla scoperta della costiera Amalfitana o delle strade di straordinaria bellezza della costa di Maratea, tra i paesi e le masserie della Puglia, nel cuore verde della Calabria o nei romantici dintorni di Roma. I viaggi includono pernottamenti e soste per il pranzo o la cena in luoghi scelti caratteristici dove scoprire e degustare le specialità del posto. Qui si potrà rivivere la magia sensazionale delle tradizioni di quel Sud che ancora conserva il legame speciale con la ricca tradizione del passato senza rinunciare alle più lussuose comodità.

Vespa e Lambretta


Italy.  In the past, Italy was the dream destination of the Germans. In the same way, pure nostalgia emerges from the “A m’arcord”

tours of Meridianosedici.

.."...The tour operator organizes journeys through different regions of Southern Italy – on the original

scooters of the 1950ies and 1960ies.."...




Riders -                                                                              Italy Nr.18 - April 2009


She (the "Vespa") has a wasp waist and the same wide tail.-

..“Memories that cannot be erased and the fascination of a design which like few others have set the trend.

Vespa (Italian for “wasp”) and Lambretta: names that barely pronounced recall the vacations. And not only that. Meridianosedici offers

organized tours in the most impressive spots of Southern Italy. Amidst the little hamlets of the Amalfi Coast, at the Gulf of Maratea, b

etween the sea and the rolling hills of Cilento, in the Apulian Valle d’Itria and in Calabria. Or for those who prefer the Roman holiday

(in the style of the homonymous film with Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn - see the pictures above), there’s a journey along

the old roads of the Roman Empire..."...




Die Zeit -                                                                                              Germany Nr.14 - April 2009


A nostalgic jaunt for Italy vacationers

"The Vespa represents the style of the Fifties and Sixties like hardly any other vehicle. Even if the scooter is still being produced,

for the real fan only the original exemplar counts. This summer it’ll be possible to cruise leisurely on such Vintage Vespas through

the Italian landscapes. The Berlin tour operator Meridianosedici has developed the itineraries and named them “A m’arcord”

(I remember) inspired by Fedeico Fellini’s film.The vacationers are guided through Puglia, Calabria or the Latium region..."

.."And also the magnificent view from the coast road, the “Amalfitana”, can be enjoyed in this nostalgic way..."





Abenteuer & Reisen.                                                             Deutschland  Nr.29 - April 2009



Italiens Zauberküste in historischen Cabrios -..."Weit südlich von Neapel und Amalfitana kurvte unser Reporter in einem

Triumph Spitfire aus den 70ern über die Küstenstraße SS 18.Am Golf von Policastro entdeckte er ein liebenswertes Stück Italien

und eine der schönsten Küsten Italiens. Rund um Maratea bestimmte der durchgehend hohe Pegel von Glückshormonen den Fahrstil.

Zwei Geheimtipps in einer Story! - Kein normaler Mensch denkt bei einem so hinreißenden Anblick ans Überholen! Dem wohlgeformten

Heck in feurigem Rot mit chromblitzender Kofferablagevor mir würde man fast überallhin folgen. Das animative Röhren des 1962

gebauten Roadsters presst sich durch einen unscheinbar dünnen Performanceauspuff.

A triumphal parade -".. Already in the 17th century the English aristocratic offspring went on journey to Italy

accompanied by a private teacher who familiarized them with the cultural heritage of the European continent.

 Along with this British tradition you will be riding Classic English Triumph Convertibles. A tutor will explain

the places of interest on each route, country houses as well as mansions at the seaside offer suitable accommodation.

Riding these Spiders the views will certainly be undisguised: a real “tour d’horizon”. …”
