Tuscany masterpieces on two wheels
Tuscan hills: italian dolce vita on two wheels

Difficulty Level:
Duration: 8 days
Distance: 300 - 350 km
Landscape:

As a cyclist, you will get many opportunities to perceive the full scale of impressions, colors, shapes, and sounds in this region: the elegance of magnificent castles, the use of forms in the stylish villas, surrounded by the silvery green of the olive groves and the purple of the lilies. Visit Florence, “la bella” – the beautiful one, Siena, Vinci, and Pisa and enjoy the solitude of the wide hills cycling on quiet roads. For centuries, Tuscany has enchanted people. Both the people who have left their traces behind and helped to enrich the culture of this region and the people who came to stay. You will understand once you have been on this trip you will understand why! Tuscany has a wonderful but also hilly landscape. You will cycle on quiet minor roads and sometimes even on country lanes from one famous city to another. Close to bigger cities, traffic is unfortunately unavoidable.

TRAVEL ITINERARY

8 days / 7 nights

Day 1:

In the hotel, you will first get detailed information on the tour and your bikes. Afterwards, we recommend taking a walk in the spa park or taking the historical rack railway train to Montecatini Alto.

Day 2:

(approx. 55 km)

At the beginning of your tour, you will cycle through the vast plains of the valley Valdenievole, which is characterized by a lot of agriculture. You will continue through the first Tuscan villages, through olive groves to Vinci, the birthplace of Leonardo. We recommend visiting the museum in the castle since it is home to one of the largest and most original collections of machines and models of the inventor. Then, you will take quiet roads back to Montecatini Terme.

Day 3:

(approx. 40 - 90 km)

On your way to Lucca, you will pass the small, medieval wine town of Monte Carlo, where one of the few white wines of Tuscany flourishes. (Alternatively, you can take the train to Lucca). A bike ride on the historic city walls offers magnificent views of churches and towers that rise above the countless roofs of the city. Afterwards, you will continue to Lake Massacciuccoli (also called Lake of Giacomo Puccini) with stunning views of the sea and Pisa with its Court of Miracles (“Piazza dei Miracoli” – Leaning Tower).

Day 4:

(approx. 50 km)

First, the bike path leads you along the river Arno. Many fertile fields line your way and you will continue your tour through the Pisan hills, on whose gentle slopes sweet wines, olives and juicy peaches grow. You will see small medieval villages located on the hilltops and soon you will have reached today’s destination, the spa town Casciana Terme.

Day 5:

(approx. 55 km)

Today, you will cycle on beautiful trails through vineyards and rolling hills to San Gimignano. On your way, you will see images of the original Tuscany as they have been painted many times. Just before you reach today’s destination, the silhouettes of the famous medieval towers appear in front of you. Each aristocratic family once had their own tower here – and these towers still dominate the townscape.

Day 6:

(approx. 50 km)

The beautiful Tuscan landscape on today‘s stage makes you forget the small climbs on the route. Once you reach the small fortified village of Monteriggioni, you will feel as if you were in the Middle Ages. Today’s highlight undoubtedly is the architectonic paradise of Siena.

Day 7:

(approx. 50 km + bus transfer)

The tour takes you into the midst of the wide Chianti region. Only here the world-renowned “Chianti Classico” wine, which is much respected among wine connoisseurs, is grown. The charming wine village of Castellina is on your way to Greve. Thanks to its famous wine and olive production, it is called the capital of the Chianti region. From here you will get back to Florence by bus.

Day 8:

Individual departure, extension of your trip, or combination with the tours “Venice-Florence” and “Florence-Rome”.
