Pure Tuscany

7 Days Mod-Advanced

Italy as a country is relatively recent, but unity has reigned in Tuscany since the 15th century. Etruscan heritage, climate, light, richness of the agricultural lands, geography, natural beauty... all are advanced as explanations of the “Tuscan Miracle,” an extraordinary concentration of artistic and philosophical talent that made this tiny land the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, and today leaves a mark throughout western civilization. Every Tuscan walled town, city square, or church window is an art history case study.

But biking here is ultimately a sensual experience, not a university course. Most involuntarily put art and architecture in the back seat. The velvet softness of the Tuscan hills and the equally soft colors of the landscapes bathe you as you cycle down country lanes. And Tuscan cuisine is wonderfully accessible. Waves of Italian immigration to the Anglo world have made it familiar. Forget the French and their calf’s liver in raspberry vinegar: we know this stuff! Pastas galore, fresh tomato sauces, pizza, olive oil.... For the adventurous, plenty of discoveries remain to be made, and then washed down with a hearty chianti, whose vines line our route.
