There is no better way than by bicycle to discover the beauty and richness of this part of Italy, sharing in the passion for cycling, art, food and wine. The tour takes place in Tuscany, more specifically, in the magnificent landscapes surrounding Siena. There are, in fact, the most beautiful areas and also the most suitable for a cycling trip through Tuscany. From the seat of your electric bike, you will discover how Tuscany life flow slowly yet incessantly, creating a natural equilibrium among art, culture, and nature. Tuscany is paradise for a cycling tourist, who will be greeted by gently rolling hills embellished with winding dirt roads, curving pathways, vineyards, and shaded country roads. All of these splendors are framed by a surprisingly varied landscape where you will be able to discover abbeys, rural churches and castles. The landscape is characterized by the deep red earth, and alternates between fields of sunflowers and vineyards, and is punctuated by ancient castles and medieval hamlets. Many panoramic views allow you to see all the way to San Gimignano, overlooking forests of beautiful Italian oak and corbezzoli.

    Biking through Chianti rolling hills

    This tour was awesome and ended up at a great winery with a fabulous lunch and wine tasting. Brian was a great host and even took us to a gelato place for an extra treat. My husband who is not a bike rider was able to manage the bike even it the post 100 degree heat.

    We had a great day together with our guide Francesco. The bikes were quite new and good quality. We enjoyed nice views and great panoramic views across some Chianti sceneries in typical Tuscan style. Visited some small towns on the way to the winery. Lunch was good and also wines were nice. Francesco provided us with a really nice experience and we would do it again for sure.
