ROAD BIKE TOURS
You will have the opportunity of cycling some of the most scenic routes in Tuscany. Our routes have been designed by those who live in this area and who know where to enjoy pleasurable rides, whether they are with sweeping descents, interesting climbs or the gentle flats. Each route will incorporate fabulous views, historical centres and a coffee stop. The historical centres currently listed in our routes include for example:
- one of the oldest towns in Tuscany, Cortona, founded by the Etruscans and later became very powerful during the medieval period. Known also for the fictional book “Tuscany under the Sun”;
- Montepulciano, world renowned for the Nobile wine and where a scene from the film “New Moon” of the Twilight series was filmed;
- Pienza, birthplace of Pope Pius II and loved for the local sheeps cheese, and Montalcino, reached after a good climb, known for the Brunello wine and honey production.
Of course, you will pass through small medieval hamlets keeping your eyes out for the wild boar, deer or even wolves!! Depending on the days route, you’ll witness the rolling hills with country houses perched high on top and the typical cypress trees on an ancient landscape, you’ll cycle through the countryside filled with olive trees, grapevines or sunflowers. We will select the day’s route according to the climate and the group’s ability to ensure the best for you. Our routes will furnish you with an unforgettable experience of Tuscany, and one we guarantee you’ll want to repeat.
