Tuscany Road Bike Cycling Holiday

Cycling Holidays in the Tuscany Italy

8 Days Advanced - Challenging 480 KmAVG 68 Km

Sport activity combined with overnights in culture and art cities like Volterra, San Gimignano and Siena. Enjoying the wines and the tasty Tuscan cooking will make your Tuscany bike tour just unforgettable!

You will experience all sides of Tuscany’s wonderful landscape, cycling in the hilly Volterra area and to the Mediterranean sea, through the Chianti region, where the “Chianti Classico” comes from, and to the wonderful Crete, in the south of Siena. The Tuscany’s hilly landscape is the perfect place to begin or end a cycling season. The temperatures are perfect to cycle all the year round, so that many professional teams (i.e. T-Mobile Team) are already here in February to prepare them for the cycling season, following up the nice climate and the hilly land.

Tour features:
Every cyclist with a good ground condition can cycle the tour quite well. Tuscany has a typical hilly landscape and therefore, apart from some longer climbs and more level ground districts, the tour profile is characterized by a continuous up and down. The routes are on mostly good asphalt roads, far from causeways. You may happen to encounter more traffic when entering or leaving a city.
