Description

This 8-night holiday is, quite simply, outstanding in every way: the rich scenery, the fantastically contrasting hotels, the local cuisine, exceptional wines... the list goes on!You'll start off in Volterra, a beautifully preserved hilltop gem whose eclectic mix of Etruscan, Roman and Renaissance art and architecture has inspired artists and writers for centuries. From here, you pedal northeast along quiet, rolling country lanes as you coast towards honey-coloured Pancole, nestled in the Tuscan hills. The cycling is truly glorious as you continue, via fortified towns and hill villages, to mediaeval Colle - optional day trips to Florence and Siena - and San Donato, a sleepy wine hamlet overlooking San Gimignano. Your final stretch takes you through a timeless and kaleidoscopic landscape of ochre-coloured hills and verdant vineyards and gives a real sense of achievement as you loop back to Volterra for your final night.
