Description

There are few better ways to fully immerse yourself in this land of light, history, and vine than this quintessential Tuscany bike tour. Find yourself gliding down lanes gilded by the Tuscan sun for seven glorious days, as we bring you unforgettable cycling adventures in this most fabled of Italian regions.

From the quaint town of Radda in Chianti to the photogenic landscapes of San Quirico D'Orcia, our biking tour through the magnificent Tuscan countryside has, as its backbone, the famed Via Chiantigiana. Literally meaning 'Chianti Street', this most classic of Tuscany cycling routes reveals the heart of the Chianti wine region in all its splendor. Rich with color, all around are views worthy of a Renaissance painting - alive with bright wildflowers in the spring, darkened with crushed grapes in the fall.

Our Tuscany bike tour also features a visit to Siena, where a languid medieval air lingers amidst its twisting streets of warm ochre buildings. Strolling its narrow maze of cobblestone alleys you'll make an amazing architectural journey. Explore delightful piazzas, intricate displays of masonry, and its superb marble cathedral, before climbing the Torre del Mangia, Siena's most famous tower, to enjoy its breathtaking views.
