Tuscany – based in one hotel

Cycling, feasting, relaxing

Difficulty Level:
Duration: 8 days
Distance: 240 - 240 km
Landscape:

Simply thinking about this popular region puts a smile on a lot of people’s faces! The many lovely landscapes in mild sunlight and numerous art cities in Tuscany make up this region’s special charm. The famous spa town Montecatini Terme is the ideal starting point for your tours exploring the area.

You will experience world-famous attractions riding your bike. Every day you will get from one highlight to another and at the same time you will always be looking forward to getting back to your comfortable wellness hotel.
