The Tuscany bike tour is a unique and unforgettable lifetime experience: spend a day biking through the rolling Tuscan countryside and enjoy a delicious typical meal with wine tasting!
Let us lead you into Tuscany's most authentic soul, to feel the gentle fresh breezes and breathe in sweet floral scents biking along silent cypress-lined country roads.
Depart downtown Florence aboard our minivan in the morning, for a pleasant 25 minute drive to the nearby Chianti hillside, where you will board your bikes: both regular bikes and E-bikes are available, just let us know what you prefer and that's what you will have!
All off! Follow your guide along a route studded with golden-hued farmhouses and vineyards.
Stop for photos, perhaps at the edge of a charming meadow or a silvery olive grove. During this Tuscany bike tour you will lose yourself in enchanted landscapes pedaling leisurely, discover glimpses of eternity, ancient castles and quaint parish churches.
Take a welcome break half-way through your journey to relax and indulge your taste buds with a scrumptious snack in an exquisite spot. Relax in the cool shade of centuries-old oak trees and cypresses and enjoy a staple of traditional Tuscan country fare: freshly baked local bread with premium olive oil.
Among the other Tuscany bike tours, this one will let you uncover the secrets of the amazing realm of world-class wine production, stopping at two different internationally renowned and acclaimed wineries along the way. Welcomed by the estate staff, you will be able to explore the cellars lined with precious blends. You will learn about wine production in general and about the two wineries' different approaches and techniques.
Tuscany is a pleasure-filled heaven that feeds all your senses: enjoy getting to know all about bottling, aging and storing wine and "Tuscan gold": fragrant olive oil.
At the end of the tour savor a typical Tuscan wine-pairing lunch: specialty local dishes served paired with the extraordinary wines of the two award-winning estates you visited.
Note: your itinerary includes flat, downhill and uphill sections, to offer an all-round experience and diverse viewpoints.
Our van will always be nearby, following the group, thus you may plan the biking part of this experience as you wish.
If you feel up to hearty exercise you can have an intermediate level bike ride, with some interesting uphill sections.
If you prefer an easier excursion we suggest the electric bike option or you can still enjoy most of the biking itinerary (the flat and downhill sections), and take advantage of the van for the (few) uphill portions.
Mileage: 10 miles round-trip (about 15 kms)
Terrain: Mostly paved back roads with little traffic, some dirt roads.
Difficulty: INTERMEDIATE (the itinerary is not strenuous but very hilly and requires a good condition, being an intermediate level. Minivan support available for the uphill sections. We strongly recommend the ELECTRIC BIKE option if you are not fit and in good conditions.)
Children under 14 years old are not allowed on this tour.
