Best experience! Had such a lovely time riding around the city walls of Lucca and the country roads to the vineyard. The E-bikes definitely made the ride easier and did the hard work for you especially when going up some of the more steep roads (which weren’t many) once at the vineyard It was so nice to be able to sit between the vines and getting to taste the wine, they prepared everything so nicely for us which made us feel welcomed and our guide was so friendly and informative it was just such a nice atmosphere We felt like we were having lunch with good friends We had the best time and would love to do it again!
